When it comes to writing, I take myself way too seriously.
Maybe you’re that same kind of writer?
The one who wants to be relevant, sound smart, deep, even waxing philosophical perhaps?
Yup, that’s me.
I am inside my head way too much.
I am a thinker.
Is that just par for the course when you’re navigating life using a writer’s brain…a writer’s soul?
But sometimes I just think way too much. I just need to write it out, whatever it may be.
And what do I do in the many minutes, hours, days and weeks that I spend not writing?
Well, I spend a lot of time doing.
Doing mom things, doing wife things, doing other creative things besides writing.
I love creating so much that I considered starting up one of those artsy-momma type blogs. That’s one of those “someday” things though (like when they invent an extra hour – or five! – for our days). In the meantime, I create for myself and my family through photography, drawing (Sharpies & colored pencils make me giddy!), sewing, cooking and gardening. (Yes! I have way too many hobbies, but how can you pick just one?!) Is there such a thing as a compulsive creator?
Anyways…I’m sure I’ll share some of those creations here from time to time.
