I am still writing, working away at the novel I began in the novel class that I am now finishing up. 100 plus pages, and I am just beginning to feel like I might know where it is all going! But then, this is the kind of writing that I really enjoy, hold on to your seats and lets go for a wild ride kind of writing. When I know too much at the beginning, I am not likely to finish. It is too boring, heading toward and ending that I already know, that is too expected. With unknown elements still at work, I have something to look forward to each time I sit down to eek words out onto the paper. I like to be surprised, I like to be amused, I like to find myself in a new place (literally and metaphorically) and most of all, I like to see, hear, read, experience new things that are outside what I have already had the pleasure of enjoying. So, onward and upward, looking into a spring full of words and filled pages, and possibly some writing sessions out of doors eventually.
After a year or more of neglect, I am ready to return to my blog. I am a 50-something woman ready to shake adventure, fun and creative work out of my life. I am, as seems to be the case with many of us, in the midst of change. I think that I stopped blogging thinking that I would finish some kind of transition and arrive at a new (settled) place in my life. Instead, I seem to be be in continuous change, and perhaps that is more the reality of life. So, here, standing in the river of life, I find myself, open arms and open heart, ready for whatever life brings on.
