I'm taking a leaf out of another board I host..... I'm wondering where everyone is. Are you all hard at work on new books?

Inquiring minds ......

Just started again jotting down some new ideas and random thoughts. I usually have more time to write during the winter months ahead, so I figured I'd use this time to lay in some tinder to light my creative fire! LOL

How about you?

Things are a little stressed right now, so I haven't started anything. I'm hoping when things calm down I can finish the short story I have started.

Here's hoping things calm down a bit for you soon!

Today marks the end of the first six weeks of school, so we've got our routine down pat now and I've got a bit more time for myself and my writing. I figure I've got the rest of September, October and most of November to really put my nose to the grindstone; I'm pretty sure I can get a couple of short stories completed before the busy fall/winter holidays arrive.

Try talking it out first, into a recorder of some type or, if you have it, use voice recognition software and edit when you finish. It might make it easier to get through. Good luck, keep us posted.

Hi and welcome!

I can totally understand how much of an emotional challenge this is for you. I think lady's suggestion to talk it out and record it is a good suggestion to try. Being able to verbalize your experiences and release some of the pain and emotion, might help you to then focus on getting the right voice and order to the written work.

Are you finding that this endeavor is helping you to cope with what you've been through? I know from my own experiences that sometimes writing can be extremly theraputic. I wish you the best of luck and hope you'll stop by often and let us know how it's going!
