Writing Again

I'm clawing my way back to normal, especially since the last 35 days have been anything but normal.  I only wrote a few sentences yesterday but it's been more than I've written since Christmas.  Taking it moment by moment at this point.  Sometimes that's all you can do, right? 

And so it begins.

Little steps add up, Liz.

Writing can be such an amazing catharsis. I hope you and your family are doing all right. Much love to you! x

Joanne said...

Yes, do what you can. A few words, a few pages at a time. And it may help, too.

Tracy Jo said...

Yes, one moment at a time. Glad you were able to write a little. Take care of you!

Talli Roland said...

I'm finally getting back to writing after a bit away, too. Hope everything is okay, Liz.

We all take baby steps before we learn to run. *Hugs*

Karen Walker said...

Yes, Liz, moment to moment. Take good care of you. Grief will move in its own way and time and you need to be gentle with yourself.

That's all we can do sometimes. I think of What About Bob and the baby steps he took. Often humor is so helpful.

That sounds lik progress. I can so empathise. I'm only glad I've got this voices blogfest to stimulate my writing brain cells again.

{hugs} Liz. Moment by moment sounds about right. Take care of yourself and we'll be here when you're ready.

Sarah Pearson said...

Hugs to you, Liz. Little steps, hon. Little steps.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Absolutely. One word, one page, one day at a time. Taking the first step is always the hardest, but it'll get easier. Really.

Danette said...

I'm surprised you're even trying to get back to "normal" (whatever that is) already. Definitely don't push yourself. You've had a difficult go recently and you will have good days and bad days ahead that will make you wonder why you thought it was getting easier or back to "normal."

Hugs and good luck! Take it one step at a time. <3

That is usually all you can do. I am sorry that things have been difficult for you and that I had not stopped by to show you some support. I really wish you and your family all of the best. Hang on in there, you are doing great.

Ann Best said...

That IS sometimes all you can do. I think we've all been there! One step at a time has always been my motto, and it's even more so now as I get older, and older! Hang in there. Keep writing, one sentence at a time. Take care!

So good to see you're coming back!

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, Liz. I went back to see what I had missed and saw your previous post. I really love that photo. He was a handsome and strong-looking man.
Take your time...and have a good week.
*hugs*
