Well, it finally happened…. I am at a stalemate with my writing…. the words just flowed from my fingertips when I thought I was talking to someone and not just writing… SO HERE’S THE NEWS! I’m opening up the comments once again in hopes that I can get back to being the writer I once was or even better!
Here’s another bit of news also…. MY SON CALLED ME OUT! When I kicked it around with him about opening the comments back up, he asked, “Why?”
“Because I had someone to talk “with” and “to” and not just put words down.”
He queried, “How will that help you in your writing?”
“It makes me feel like my writing has purpose, that I’m connected in some way, that I am contributing to their knowledge base.”
“MOM! I thought this website was aboutYOU, not about teaching people about all the medical stuff, or about something technical!”
“Well, that’s what it started out to be Brian, but, there’s so much I know now to share with others and it just doesn’t seem fair to keep it to myself.”
“But this is about YOUR journey, about what’s happening with YOU, about YOUR life, about how YOU’RE feeling health-wise and about things now that YOU’RE better. This is supposed to be about YOU and YOUR story and about how YOUR life’s changed in all the different ways. Isn’t that what YOU told me YOU originally wanted to do with this website?”
“Yeah, but, I discovered there’s so much more I could give, to share, that others could use!”
He suscintly answered, “Then write another book about THOSE things.”
“THIS WEBSITE IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT YOU!”
So for the last three weeks I’ve been contemplating about that conversation and how to handle it. I still don’t have all of it worked out in my mind, but I did start that third book. I’m compiling all the “medical” stuff I’ve incorporated in my website, pulled it out and will be putting it in some semblance of order for it to be all in one place.
I really miss talking with all of you the way I used to, not all that long ago. You’ve become my friends. I respond well to friends, to people I feel care about me. I begin to care about you as well. This is a big hint to anyone who wants to get on my good side, become my friend first…. it goes an extremely long way with me. Get to know me, share yourself with me, let me know you care. I’ll reciprocate. I’ve never really been comfortable putting myself out there, as so many of you don’t, but the more I do, the easier it’s becoming, and the easier it is to receive. Try it!
In the meantime, know that I do miss you all, your responses spurred me on to think deeper, write better, and have a richer life because of it. Serious writing is a full time job, and, I don’t know how I’m going to find the time to dedicate myself to do this these days. I have a few other things on my plate as well, but for now I’ll try. So I guess what I’m saying is, though I might be a little rusty, I’M BACK!
Hugs, to you all!
Take care of you and yours,
