Getting back to normal

So, I'm rusty. Yeah. It's been a while and even though I can't wait to get back on track (let's face it, I missed my schedule), my brain needs about a quart of oil to get going again. It's like riding a bike (I know, super cliche). Once I get going, I'm golden.

What have I been doing? Lots of stuff with my kids. Who knew they needed entertainment every second of the day. I really thought as they got older, they didn't need as much of it. Basically, I planned things for them every week and it was fun, but exhausting.

One of the most awesome cities ever.
I did travel, which was fun as well. The beach and Florida. My last trip was to one of my favorite cities, and one that inspires a lot of my writing. Munich. Love, love, love it, and there are some new ideas popping up in my brain. That big beast in my head is not only going to explode with the words I haven't written, but now is forming new ideas--with more words.

My writer brain is about to spill over with words. If you see that some one's brain exploded and words fell out, yeah, that would be me. I get anxious when I don't write. It makes me cranky and has me pacing. I miss it. I wrote a little over the summer and thought a lot about my characters, but not enough to satisfy the creative portion of my soul.

So, yes, I'm ready for a routine and I can't wait to write.

How about you? Does it feel like your head is about to pop if you haven't written in a while?

Have  a great day!!


  1. But you're all inspired now and that's cool!

  2. You sound exactly like me, Christine. I'm trying to get back into the flow again. The summer off kind of made me wonky when it comes to my writing. Or maybe that's because I've been busy with other things, and I haven't had as much time to write as before.

    Good luck with writing again, now that the kids are back to school.

  3. What a fun time! I hope you find the time to write very soon. No one wants you head to pop. ;)

  4. Yay for getting back to writing! Munich seems like such an inspirational city. Good luck!

  5. Someday I'll get to continental does look inspiring!

    My day job got insanely busy over the summer, and trying to plan a book launch at the same time was all I could do. I know exactly what you mean about the writing itch feeling like your head could pop, it's so bursting with ideas.
