Hello, Hello

I have been a terrible blogger and I apologize for this. I have been writing, though. I promise. In fact, I've been writing a lot. So much so that I simply do not have time to blog like I used to. It's a good thing.

Everything is still going well. I'm ready for this semester to be over. I'm starting to feel a little burnt out. Spring is in the air and the 80 degree weather is demanding my attention. It's not my fault. It's Mother Nature. She's very pushy.

I feel terrible. I'm not sure what to write about. I will say that I've been working on my memoir as much as I can. This summer  I plan to bust out a large chunk. I've learned so much this semester about memoir writing. I've got a much better grasp of what it's going to take than I did before taking this class. I'm excited to put all my effort into it. Even if it's never published, it will be cool to have it finished for me.

And let me just say, writing about your own life is no joke. I'm going to be admitting and talking about things that I definitely do not talk about in this blog. It's terrifying to literally be an open book. In the same breath, it might be liberating to just get it all out there. The finished product will be interesting to say the least.

What else, what else.

I dunno. I'm just happy where I'm at right now. Things are easy breezy. Nothing crazy to report which is a beautiful thing. I'm healthy, happy, and moving forward.

Can I get a low five? Oooh yeah.

Good to see you are doing well - I have not being expecting too much from you recently, feeling that this blog has probably run its course now, telling the whole story of what life threw at you and how you came through it.

Good luck with the memior - do you have a publisher yet? I hope you get the treatment that you deserve.

I have started writing a book - but mine is about zombies, purely a comedy story...

I know you probably think this post was silly as you didn't really write about much, but I must say it just goes to show how strong of a woman you have become over the last 5 years. To see where you have been and returned from is nothing short of amazing. I know you don't know me, and I don't know you, but I am extremely proud of you. :)

Please keep us posted about your memoir. If you plan to get it published I would love to read it. Your story is amazing and heart wrenching and uplifting and inspiring, and not to mention you are a great writer!

Low 5! Woot! WTG, Karie, write on!

I'm weirdly stuck nearly everywhere right now in terms of writing, except for comments (no surprise there). Sometimes I just save the comments I write because the material is quite good (if i say so myself) I just don't know how to knit it all together.

The most important thing is you just get your thoughts on the page. Don't worry about the order of things, or even the style, and don't worry about what others will think. Just write the scene you want to get down, and then.... push it aside until the next day, week, or month, and rework it later.
Publishing --well, most of what's written is never published, so don't worry about that. Just get the words on the page --that's the most important and validating thing about the process!
