Writing: Can't live with it can live without it.

I both love and hate writing. I hate the hard work it is for me to do it right. After I read my posts and see all of my spelling and grammatical errors, I cringe. Sometime just typing takes too much energy. Other times II fall asleep in the middle of writing a post. But when I don't write, I feel... Sign in to see full entry.

Writing Again

I haven't written for a while. I've been afraid to write because my daughter reads my writing and she is so paranoid. Perhaps she has some reason to be since I do write about her. Writing is catharsis for me. There aren't too many people who want to hear about your daughter's mental illness. Online,... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm finally able to write again.

I'm rewriting one novel, getting more background information for another, and starting to get material for a book on caregiving. For me being able to write isn't so much a matter of inspiration but being free of other things, being awake and having the time to write. I also think that the down times...

I wish I was better at language and details.

I think that I have good ideas and something to say, but writing well is difficult for me. Language doesn't come easy for me. I'm not logical and ideas pop into my head in random order. Thus it is hard for me to argue a point. I also don't remember detail that well. Too many details and you weigh... Sign in to see full entry.

I miss writing.

For almost a year, I wrote everyday from five in the morning until twelve o'clock at night. I have now started writing more but I've been away from my computer and it is harder for me to write by hand. I think better on the computer than I do with a pen and paper. I did have a writing project, but I... Sign in to see full entry.

Stolen Moments

If you are a writer, you have to write. Now, I'm visiting my mother. I don't have much time to write, so I have to steal the time. Usually I bring a notebook with me. This time, I forgot. Other than writing e-mails, writing columns for blogging network.com helps. Another thing I do is write e-mails... Sign in to see full entry.

Starting something new

I finally figured out a new project to write about. I've had writer's block because I have felt like there is something in my life that I didn't want to talk about. Now I have freedom to deal with it. Writer's block can be a little like an emotional block. If you are hiding something, then you won't... Sign in to see full entry.

Today is the deadline for my writing project

I have one poem left to rewrite and I'm finished. So why don't I finish it? Because I feel so inadequate? Because i don't want to say it's done? Because I'm still not sure that they actually want to publish it? Who knows. I need deadlines--but this is ridiculous. I have a new project that I'm going... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Writer's Block

I was too busy to write last week. Then I got sick. I can't write very well when I'm sick. Real life interferes with writing. I need to have space in order to write. Sign in to see full entry.

Writer's Block

I've written for a year without it. Now I'm getting it back. Part of it is having something to say and not knowing how to say it. The other is not having the time and energy to devote to writing. I have too many people who want to talk to me. So I don't have the time to write. So even though I... Sign in to see full entry.
