Climbing Back into the Swing of It

Anna (10), who is on page 27 of her book, Selena, advises me that, in order to get back into the swing of writing, I have to actually sit down and write.   It gets easier once you get going again, she says.  And she should know. After a long springtime hiatus, Anna's back in the thick of story writing again; Selena has to get up off of her sleeping novel behind and face the world according to Anna.. 

And, let me tell you: if Selena can get up and go again after all the tragedy and drama in her world, I can get up and go, too. So here I am, getting going again.

Is anyone out there?

Let me know if you're there?  And tell me what I should write about, OK?  I need a little push to get me started before I can get pumping my feet on this swing.

Rank your children in order one through ten, ten being highest.

Hahaha! Well, just being the first person to comment here, you have secured your place somewhat near the top, I must say...

Write about how much you need your own laptop so you don't have to write from the middle of Grand Central Station.

Uh, Yeah, DH Dan.... :0) This may be a story you need to write for me?

I have been there, too, lately. I've been writing, then not, then writing, then not.

I don't know ... life, I guess.

But with your huge family there should be a never ending source of ideas!

Your topics are always so interesting, timely, and often quite amusing. Your children are my favorite topics, maybe it is the mom in me. I am always happy to "hear" from you whatever you write.
