MM : Speechless?
Wow, it’s been so long since I wrote a blog post that I don’t remember how to begin! Me – at a loss for words?
Actually, I’ve been doing a lot of word-working. Just started attending a creative writing class once a week at the local community college. (Just started – meaning, it began in August.)
It’s been very good for me. And a lot of fun. But also it’s very strange to have homework to do every week. *grin*
It’s difficult sometimes to find the time to fit everything in. I’m still giving my best efforts toward running the house smoothly: the cooking and cleaning and keeping the kids fed and educated properly.
But I’m also making time everyday to write. That’s what I feel I’ve been called and gifted to do. But, you don’t become a body-builder by reading books on lifting weights, right? So, I’ve been regularly exercising my writing muscles.
(You think I jest? I finished 3 poems and wrote 1000 words of an essay over the weekend, and got a few nonsense ideas for more verse typed up last night. Whew! Makes me tired just thinking about it.)
I have such big dreams for the future…but I won’t get there if I don’t put forth the effort. (Although, if God has a big, fat book contract sitting around that He wants to get rid of … just kidding!)
What does this have to do with The Home Front?
Good question. I’m going to try to develop a regular posting schedule. Ask my kids – if a job isn’t posted in plain sight (preferably in several different spots, with multiple colors of sticky notes) I’ll forget, and it won’t get done. Hopefully, with a planned posting method, I’ll be able to keep you all in the loop.
So, here’s to big dreams, lots of prayer, juggling moms, and enjoying the journey!
PS - Happy Blogaversary to me!
PS (again!) - Linking up with Carissa at lowercase letters for miscellany monday...even though it's Tuesday...and not very miscellaneous...oh, well!
