Blowing the Dust off – A new start in 2014

Posted in blogging with tags on January 1, 2014 by Nellie

I wish I could say that I was busy doing important things that I forgot about the blog and hardly posted in the past year, but I can’t really say that. It was more exhaustion of real life and then not feeling the writing muse beyond writing a couple words a day. Work got hectic and then I was punched in the gut in the summer and then after it was all very ‘MEH’.

Hopefully work will get better now that we have a new person to help with the load. Now we have four people doing the work of five instead of three. I lost my horse at the end of July due to a health issue that she had gotten when she had her foal. I’ve said it before to my roommate that if I ever met someone from that broodmare farm, I would be hard pressed not to punch them in the face. But she was a pasture puff the past few years so at least she was happy the last eight years I had her.

I need to organize all the bits and pieces of writing that I have on different files. Get my thoughts organized and see if I can actually keep up writing with short stories. And find someone who will be a beta when I need one.

2013 wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great either. I look forward to not having another year like this past one again. I’m going to start slow and say that I’m going to post to this blog at LEAST once a week. If I get an extra post in, then that’s considered bonus, right?

Start small. Isn’t that the way to go?
