It’s been entirely too long since I’ve written on this blog. It’s not that I haven’t been writing. I feel like that’s all I’ve been doing. Over the past six months, the amount of writing I’m doing has increased significantly, and obviously, I’m excited about that.
I’ve worked on five websites with the web design firm Pixels In My Pocket. I’ve continued my work with the two newspapers I work with. I write columns for both. Columns are a joy for me to write. I feel like I can truly be myself and express my opinions. It’s interesting how drastically different writing a column is as compared to a feature article or web content. One is so personal and first-person while the other is so objective. It’s true that journalists must possess a repertoire of voices and perspectives.
My parenting blog is still trucking right along. It has become a part of who I am. I’ve maintained its integrity as a keepsake to hold the memories of my two little boys and our family. I occasionally write reviews and sponsored posts, but the bulk of the posts are anecdotes, family fun adventures and personal stories.
What’s going on in your writing life? Are you still writing? Even though I’ve accomplished many of my writing goals, I have so many more. They seem to accumulate daily. Work on that novel I finished seven years ago, write an eBook, write content for more websites, write for bigger magazines, etc. etc.
As Winston Churchill says, “Continuous effort-not strength or intelligence-is the key to unlocking our potential.”
I believe in those words whole-heartedly.
