>I owe everyone an apology for my absence. Iím sure
>Iím not alone in expressing life is busy. Again.
>Family and work take a lot of effort. With me, Iím
>still working stupid, crazy hours, still have to put
>on my various hats, and well, yeah, Iím tired. My day
>starts off at 3 or 4 am because thatís when my mind
>starts to remind me of all I need to get done. By the

>computer to type in some words, Iím done. Add in the
>family issue I hinted at before, and not only am I
>tired, Iím drained. So what do I do? I sit like an
>idiot in front of the TV watching episode after
>episode on Netflix.

>So after pondering on things for awhile I admitted to
>myself that itís not my life thatís keeping me from
>writing, or from this board, itís my choices.

>And now that Iíve acknowledged my problem, I have a
>choice whether or not to do anything about it. My
>life hasnít changed since my post in freaking
>September, and Iím smart enough to realize it wonít
>change all by itself. Thinking back, writing made me
>happy. Writing was fun. Posting was a blast.
>Editing after receiving comments, wellÖyeah, there was
>a certain joy seeing my work get better. It was
>challenging. There was no better place to come with
>my morning cup of coffee than to the Lit Forum to see
>what was new.

>I still have my caffeine addiction, so Iím making a
>choice to get my writing obsession back to go with it.
> That is a more proactive approach than waiting and

>up at 3am to do it, all the better. Thatíll give me
>two and a half hours before my alarm goes off to
>practice my craft.
>
>So, hereís what Iím planning to do to get started.

>1. Post a check in post every Saturday Ė this is where
>we are accountable, checking in with our progress
>during the week, and a place to share some of our work
>if we are so inclined without expectation of a crit.
>Itís just a look what I did! kind of post. Or a place
>to share accomplishments and our challenges.
>2. Post a new homework assignment every second Sunday!
> Gads I miss this one.
>3. Post something, anything, to get this board
>scrolling again. I could use some help on this one.
>You see what Iím saying?
>4. Change the wallpaper more often.
>5. And I promise, promise, promise, that this is the
>last post like this thatíll come from me.
