The Scariest Times in your Life

I haven’t written more than a page in a good month or more…. more.

My life has been taken over by baby.

Ha! Can’t help myself…too funny. And oddly enough, somewhat accurate.

But the worst part is…because you know it’s not that sweet, sweet child you gave birth to and who is the cutest thing ever…the worst part is that in the back of your mind, you wonder if you’ll ever do what you really want to ever again. There’s like a switch back that there gets flipped and doubts start eating away at your thoughts.

It’s the worst kind of writer’s block…and blogger’s block.

I almost missed my day today. Just about forgot it again. 😛 But it’s our scary month and I wanted to share what’s going on…and then send you over to my good friend Bria’s blog. She’s got a story that we could all do well to listen to. 🙂 Happy Halloween, Happy All Saints Eve…. whatever you celebrate. Enjoy it.

  1. Babies are lucky they’re so stinkin’ cute. 😉 Right now, I have to leave the house to get any writing done. My 7-month-old has a sixth sense about when I start writing. He can be sound asleep in his bed and will start screaming the second I sit down with my laptop.

    So adorable and true! No, your life will never be quite the same, and you’ll have to fight your deeply loved little time stealer for writing time and energy. On the up-side of that, this stage won’t last long. Keep a digital recorder with you for your writing and cherish every moment 🙂

    I can so relate… some years back. Things do get better. I promise. Baby will always be your baby and they will always need you regardless of how big they get. Learn to carve out even 30 minutes for yourself to just breathe.
