trying to get back in the saddle

Well, middlest is married and heading into the future with his wife. They’re back in California, moved into the new apartment with room for a baby due in February. They’re excited and happy. So are we. We’re making plans to be out there when the baby comes and trying to get our heads around being grandparents.

All of which is massively distracting. I had thought I’d come home from the wedding ready to get back in the saddle and just turn out the words the way I used to. It was so easy to think that the wedding distraction was why I wasn’t getting any writing done.

But of course there’s always another distraction. Sometimes you do have to let real life take over, but most of the time it’s just another factor to be dealt with. There are always distractions. I have to write anyway. Get back in the saddle. Make words instead of excuses.

Watch me go!
