Reasons are not excuses, Azur.   If they were, I'd be ground under with guilt.  Make sure the new you has fun - and then let me know how you did it.  Good luck.

Seems to me you're already a creative writer and I think you just have to recreate by getting some rest away from it all. Come to Canada luv and visit.

On ReInventing OnesSelf

My friend inspired me - ReInventing herself after recovering from a long illness.

I don't think "luck" had anything to do with it.  It does begin with a mental process, the MakingTheDecision to HaveABetterLife - to look better, feel better, do better, achieve more, influence more. Looking better leads to feeling better, Feeling better leads to doing better, Doing better leads to achieving more, Achieving more leads to influencing more people, which is what it takes to ChangeTheWorld. "If I change myself, I change the world.

I think in a way we are water, flowing to fill the depressions
and if opportunity presents a welcome, we go there. Why would we stubbornly insist on splashing up against a stone that will take eons to impress in the slightest.

I know your ship is going to come in! It seems like forever, but you are too good of a person not to succeed! I like the reinvention though! One never knows where that will lead! I am anxious to see how this works for you! I am glad you had a short cry, I did not too long ago and it is relieving! I am going to pray for your success, my lucky man can work miracles, too! Hang in there, good things come to those who wait! I do know you have put in your waiting time, and I know you will be successful beyond your wildest dreams! sam

I'm not real sure of this reinventing oneself business.  I have a lot of questions about it and how one goes about it.  It will be interesting to watch what happens for you.  Does one need to unlearn the ways they have always used and that have worked for them in the past?  Or, does one evolve by building on what has already been successful at some point in life?  Is this reinvention business a mental process?  Or, is it inspiration added to trial and error?  Or, is it the "luck" that no one really believes in?

Citing excuses is not the same as MAKING them.
Those whon can, sell. Those who can't, judge.

I think we constantly re-invent ourselves, sometimes in very small ways, often barely noticeable to ourselves and others; and yet sometimes that change may come as a rapid, and profound process, like a tectonic shift, a.k.a. an earthquake...It's all part of life, and growing in some way...

And at least you're writing! I joined Blogit to force myself back into the writing habit, but I haven't been writing at all lately...I feel a bit tired, actually...

A change is as good as a rest

Enjoy the new experience, Azur, and you might even have time for writing in a notebook in periods of quiet. If nothing else you might end up with some good material...

I'm with you one hundred percent on the subjective process of judging. That was one of the reasons I dropped a creative writing unit; the criteria for even passing the unit was to produce a piece of work, over the course of year, that was 'suitable for publishing." - By whose judgement, I wondered? I thought of my GPA, a healthy 3.75, and dropped the unit. (there's confidence for you LOL)

Here's some encouragement for you... keep producing those 'leaves gay':)

Like as a tender Rose in open plaine,
That with untimely drought nigh withered was,
And hung the head, soone as few drops of raine
Thereon distill, and deaw her daintied face,
Gins to looke up, and with fresh wonted grace
Disdpreds the glorie of her leaves gay

Edmund Spenser
