Mac said to me the other day – you haven’t written on your blog for a while.
And I did a little double take – ‘You read my blog?’ I asked.
‘Well Yeah’ he replied – his tone was like ‘duh of course I do!’
‘No’ I replied ‘I need to figure out some things before I throw myself back into the writing game.’
These last couples of months not once have I felt inspired to write something on the website. Not even to share my latest pieces of work, of which there is a lot.
I love to write. Writing helps me get out of my head and clarify my chaotic thoughts. It helps me to minimize my little bitch and her demon pals who are my constant companions and critics.
And I feel that by sharing my stories I have helped others in little ways on their own creative journey, which really makes me happy. I love these connections that I have made with people through my writing.
Every week for the last six years I have written two or three posts. And last year, well maybe we shouldn’t take about the year that should be struck from the history books, but last year was such a shit year that writing became for me became very regimented.
Tuesdays were a share something that’s been happening post, Friday share some art. Wash and repeat….
But it shouldn’t be so regimented. I miss the spontaneity that I had in the early years.
So what is the purpose of this little space? What happens now?
I love writing. That isn’t going to change. And I’m not going to radically change what I write about here. It isn’t going to become a place where I start talking about the wonders of being a domestic goddess.
Let’s be honest – domestic goddess status isn’t ever going to be something I can achieve. (I can hear you laughing at the ludicrousness of this Mac!)
But I want to be more spontaneous about writing. And I may write about something I struggle with, what’s happening in Casa de Mac, what the terrible trio are up to, things that make me smile or cry or inspire me.
I think it is going to be just a general space of sharing. A sanctuary of sorts from the day to day.
And I also want to continue to inspire others to begin or continue their own creative journey.
I have an idea that has been brewing about creative journeys and helping people discover their own creativeness, and I would love to hear what you want to know. But that’s for later!
Lastly I want you to know that I appreciate every single one of you – for reading, for commenting, for letting me know how my writing or my art work has inspired you. And for just being awesome.
