I miss writing partners, write-a-thons, all night writing sessions with other writers, someone to go to bookstores with to write, local writing friends, online writing sprint parters, etc…
Now, A LOT of that is my fault and I accept that. Not being on social media anymore takes me out of visibility in every way. I didn’t have a strong social network for a number of years as it was, so to drop away entirely just weakened it to the point of I’m pretty sure anyone that ever knew I existed…forgot me.
That was a trade off I was willing to make to get my creative brain and mental health back.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss those things I mentioned above. And that’s okay. Would I like those things again? Sure. Without a doubt.
I do still have a couple of writers I am in contact with from time to time. We check in and check up on each other and I am so grateful for them.
Camp NaNoWriMo starts on Thursday.
My self-inflicted writing challenge for March ends at midnight tomorrow night
And I’ll clue y’all in on what I’m doing and what I’ve done with regards to both later this week.
