Letís start with a check in. Life has beenÖlife for the last year. You know, family issues, work issues, and just canít keep up with everything issues. So to quickly summarize:

Family issues are way too complicated to get into right now. The simplest way for me to put it Ė okay, there is no simple way to put it, but know I received some crippling news regarding my brother that left me in a daze wondering how this particular scenario in this day and age is possible, let alone acceptable. Iíve kept it together for the most part, functioning through each day, but itís been hard as itís never out of my mind. And the situation hasnít changed, if anything itís deteriorated even more. Other than that, the DH, DS and DD are all healthy and doing well.

Work has always been an issue with me, but this past year has shown me that what I thought was too much before was nothing compared to what I have going on now. My business has grown substantially, and keeps me busy for 70 hours or more each week, not counting the hours I sneak in on the weekend. Itís insanity. But I like what I do, and for the most part, manage to cope.

What I havenít managed to cope with is the craft of writing. Since writing is the balance I require, Iím hoping to change my habits.

LOL is the place to do that. Iíve lurked over the summer at the other boards, feeling the nostalgia, missing the people that I once communicated with daily. But obviously, the LOL community is here to stay and is where Iíd like to be. So letís get down to the bones of this post.

Back in the days when I was a newbie, the Lit Forum was where I came with my morning cup of coffee and there was always something new for me to read. Then one day I was brave and posted my first excerpt on this board and was introduced to a whole new world. And I miss it. SoÖ

There are things Iíd like to bring back to the Literary Forum. Homework being one. The Christmas story another. Goals if anyone is interested. And my ultimate goal here is to have posts requesting a critique. Can you imagine? Pure bliss!

And thatís that. What do you think? Any ideas? Any and all comments welcome!

Hugs

Esther
