Here it is my birthday once again and boy, has my life changed again!
During this evolution, I feel I managed to lose some really good friends in the writing industry, I feel as if I have some how made people mad at me and now, I have to try and regain those contacts once again. The fun now begins to get my "Groove" back within the writing community that I love so much. But, now comes the over whelming feeling of not knowing how to begin.
About a week ago, I attempted to get a hold of some of my contacts, people who I wanted to help. Those who I know are here to help all of us, I wanted to begin to be a part of that once again, alas, I feel that part of my "Groove" may be failing because of the lack of attention I have been able to give to my writing and those that I have worked with in the writing community off and on for the last few years.
If you are like me, trying to find your "Groove" again, it is very difficult, it is hard because of many different issues--it could be because of schedule changes, life change and so much more. But, the point is to TRY!!!! Don't rest and let it pass by you, grab a hold and drive yourself as much as you can to find your way once again.
1) Go back to setting yourself up with a normal writing schedule. Even if it is for only 15 minutes, grab that time and use it to your best advantage. You and your writing deserve that time!
3) Review what you like to write about, what is your niche. Find ways to get back into it. There are still a lot of different companies out there that are very interested in many aspects and more. With the recent turns and twists with our economy, it is nice to know that reading a book is one activity many people turn to as an economical way to relax for themselves or even for their families.
5) Continue to put forth effort to contact people, get reacquainted with different sites for example; right here at WOW!. Find out what is new, if you belong to the PG, see what everyone has been up to.
For all of you out there that have received my e-mails, I know you are probably extremely busy and are working hard to keep up with everything in your lives as well, please remember that there are a few of us that are trying to help be here for you! Once again!
So sorry to hear about your family business. But it sounds like you are trying very hard to get back into the groove. As for people who are not responding to you, don't sweat it. There are so many people out there who would love your help and support. Hang in there. Good article!
This is a great post, Carrie! I got out of my groove when the section I was writing for closed more than a year ago. Then, I had a baby. I wrote for a university's newsletter a few times after that, but I just wasn't really interested in the topics and I let that dwindle away. Now, I don't know what I want...just trying to figure that out...ReplyDelete
PS: But I do keep a notebook. Mostly I use it for blog ideas, but I figure at least it keeps me writing, right?
A writer always has words. I have no doubt you will get your groove back and get on the writing circuit again.ReplyDelete
I'll be watching out for you.
