The Biggest Hurdle

I’ve discovered that the biggest hurdle to writing is starting back up again after you’ve stopped. I guess it’s like anything – the more you write, the easier it is to write. When you put writing on hold for a few weeks, it is terribly hard to pick it back up where you left off.

We’ve had a busy month in the Rowe household. A family emergency, a sudden move to a new apartment, a trip to Chicago, countless work meetings, a work trip to Wisconsin, and the list seems to go on and on. Each day I would comment on how I needed to write – not just to keep you readers munching, but to feed my own soul – but each day I never took the time to do it. Sometimes I’d start writing, but I’d get distracted and quickly turn away.

Like with any hurdle, the only way to get past it is to jump right over it. This week is all about destroying that hurdle. With 9 drafted posts and several more inside my head just waiting to be prodded, I WILL find my writing shoes again and get them moving. Thanks for your patience and your loyalty in reading!

    Sometimes, it turns out that what you think your life should be about is not really you at all, it is a way to hide from you, to deny you. If you want it badly enough you will do it nonstop, all day, every day. So what is it that you do all day, every day?
