On the Doing of Stuff #IWSG

I am currently not here right now. I'm off doing... stuff. Cool stuff, crazy stuff, scary stuff, and a bunch of uncategorized stuff. You know, that stuff that happens when we're not writing? No I'm not currently writing. I'm in that in-between zone where the current project is in a holding pattern while various folk ponder over it, and a new project is still brewing in the cobwebbed regions of the brain while another, different kind of project is buzzing away to a happy tune while it's getting dragged into existence. And then there's life that has a mind of its own.

So, yeah, I'm not here right now. I'm not even in Sydney. I'll make it up to you when I get back in a couple of weeks. That's when I'll be able to do the bloggy rounds.

And because my advice has always been, "Keep Writing!" I've decided to start up journal writing again. That way I can continue stringing those tricksy words together while crazy busy. Not only does any form of writing keeps you well practiced in the craft, it also helps to keep the insecurities away.

Blessings,
Lyn

Oh, and since this month is the April A to Z Challenge, I'll be doing the letters D, L and T over at the IWSG website. Well, technically I've done them already and scheduled them to post at the right times because when one is busy scheduling is essential. Have an awesome April!

    1. Not all the stuff is fun, but giving it a run anyway because when someone is in need I won't turn my back.

  8. Hah! I'm right there with you, but I'm doing letters C, H, and O at the Parallels anthology blog. I hope all your stuff doing goes awesome and keep the journaling up. I've been journaling for 22 years and it is really what's kept my writing up to par. Sending cheese your way, my friend!

  22. I love your enthusiasm! Good luck on new projects, old projects, those in a holding pattern, and putting tricksy words into a journal. I'm in a writing holding pattern - but that's just plain old procrastination! lol

    1. hehehe, a holding pattern due to unavoidable life circumstances is one thing, a holding pattern due to procrastination is quite another. Get back to work! *sound of whip cracking*
