I'm so glad to be back. I'll admit all the not blogging about writing, not thinking about writing, not worrying about whether or not the laundry would get done because I was writing went away for a while and I was glad. It was stressful to do those things. I had the handy excuse of moving my family to another state in the middle of the school year to concentrate on, and I could hand off at least my blogging duties to the immensely capable writers I blog with.
I was so filled with relief that it surprised me a bit to find that once the dust had settled and my internet connection restored, my first thought was of writing. Of course it helped that I attended my first ANWA meeting, where the amazingly talented (and published!) chapter president Jennifer Griffith had made me so welcome, as well as the other lovely ladies in the group.
So I feel a bit restored to writing, like coming back home after a stay in the hospital. You're still not entirely well (if only you could see the boxes upon boxes scattered in my house right now), but you feel you're on the mend, anxious to begin living a normal life again.
