I’m griping again. I hate neglecting this space, and yet work, motherhood and life in general always get in the way. What can I say? I try.
Not even having the app on my phone has helped regularize the posting, but I try to sneak in some writing whenever I can. It is always top of mind, but translating thoughts into action don’t always happen automatically.
There is just so much that goes into blogging beyond writing that it isn’t always that easy. You think, you write. You try to come up with an appropriate graphic where applicable. You edit, you write some more, then you hope you finish your post. Then there is that sense of accomplishment when you finally see what you wrote as a live post on your corner of the web.
One of my dream jobs is to just write and write without having to worry about other things. (Like the laundry, what to cook for dinner, and if my little guy is doing his homework.) But writing is a luxury I have been fortunate to occasionally retire to in the midst of my everyday toil. The good news is, I’ve started writing poetry again (yay!), and that in itself is a feat. After more than a decade of a creative drought, the words are coming again, even if in small doses.
I have been rather busy beyond whipping up pancake breakfasts and have been up and about. Adjustments at work, travel down under (!) complete with a layover on the way and back in Manila, and projects to be started and completed make for quite the list of future posts, but there is never enough time to write.
So I will try and restart this whole “write more regularly” bit by hitting “send” now.
