Heck yeah, I'm back!

Doesn't it just figure when you get on a roll life throws one of those "15 car pileups on the highway that grinds everything to a halt" kind of moments?

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then God love ya. But.... yep..... I see you out there nodding you head with that know it all smile. You know what I'm talking about, don't you?!

Well, it appears there is a detour involved with this particular pileup. Don't start panicking. I'm not going anywhere. No need for tears. (I'm know. I'm breaking out the shovel.) This is actually good news.

Flashback. Picture it... Just kidding. Seriously though. Back in the day, a whole other life ago it feels like, I was an avid writer. I was even published in high school a few times- and not the school newspaper.Then about 11 years ago, I got the Hoover Dam of writer's block. I went from writing6-8 hours a day even waking up in the middle of the night because I had to write something to not even being able to write a letter. It was like part of me threw a hissy fit and locked the door to sulk.

Then I discovered jewelry making. Then I started this fine specimen of a blog. But, I wasn't satisfied. If you have been a reader for some time, you may have seen this hinted at in previous posts. Well, I've made a decision. Since I can feel the dam springing a leak, you shall be subjected to my inane droning from now on. ( I blame this new found sense of self partly on my redisovering my love of books. They propel me into my fantasy world so I can "see".)

I'm just going to write like I used to, the way I want to, the way I was meant to. It may not be the best but writing for me is like breathing to other people. No longer shall this blog be what other people think it should be or the way I think it should be. It's just going to be.

I understand that when blogs change some readers leave. Hope you don't. Hope you stick around. Maybe together we can open the floodgates. Maybe I'll surprise you. Either way I'm back and I'm here to stay.
