Welcome Back!

Thanks for stopping by for my Welcome Back blog post. It's been about 2 months since my last post. Way too long. Where have I been? Buried under layers of life. I started a new job in the school system and joined a health club with my kids. These, and the never ending daily concerns, have absorbed much of my time. While trying to get used to a new schedule and working outside of the house again my writing was put on the back burner. Not an excuse, I know.

This week is Spring Break for us and I plan on using it to get my writing self back in gear. So far it's gotten off to a good start. This morning I was challenged to a Word War on Twitter (yeah, first time back on Twitter in a long time too). I wrote a little more than 500 words in an hour. Certainly not a record setting writing session, but this was a great kick start to get me back into my story.

I've also taken some time to update my blog today. New background, added links, new ways to follow, and even a new post! *Whew*

Have you been feeling the urge to make changes or restart something you've let slide lately? I'd love to hear from you and please let me know what you thing of my blog improvements.

  1. Hey, look at you, all fresh & spring-like! Sounds like you've been busy...transition times are always the hardest.

    Glad to hear you're making time to write again - lovely thing about writing, it doesn't really let you stay away for long.

    Welcome back! :-)

  2. Thanks Jamie. So nice to hear from you. Hope you've been good. I'll have to hop over to your blog to see how your writing is doing. You're right, my story has been popping into my head at the oddest times. I knew it was time to get back.

  3. Welcome back to YOU. Love what you've done to your blog -- it's so bright and cheery! :)

  4. Thanks Linda. It was needing a change & only took hours of cursing at technology til it came out right ;)

  5. the new blog layout is perfect for spring! i hope you're enjoying your new job. i have even more respect for you now ~ i didn't know how you did it with four kids before and now the job! joining the health club with your kids sounds great ~ that's what my daughter did and the whole family would go. missing you, Twister! have a great spring break. ♥ *twisty squishy hugs* dani ♥

  6. Hi Dani!Lane was just asking about you on twitter. Hope you and your family are all good. We love going to the health club. It gets us out of the house and away from technology for a while. Thanks for stopping by Twister :D I'll be talking with you.
