On again, off again.

If you had told me that it had been almost two years since I'd written in this blog I'd have.....probably believed you. I've tried and tried to get things going again when it comes to writing...just can't seem to do it. Thought about writing another book, had the idea....and...never got started. Actually, not true. I got started, wrote 4 pages and deleted the file. Thought about finally getting around to finishing the screenplay for "One Team, One Dream".....nah.... Came up with an insanely hilarious idea that could be adapted on to the stage (which should be easy around here, they're just dying for things around here because there are so many playhouses, theaters, etc.)....but nope, found a reason not to. Contacted a couple of editors of local publications, just figuring that if I knew I'd get paid for it, maybe that would be motivation enough. Nope, got responses from 3 editors and never sent them anything back. Apparently I am so scarred from my writing past that I just simply can't get over that hump. The last thing that I actually wrote, for pay, was in 2010. Well, at least it was this decade, but jeez, that's a long time ago. I can use time as an excuse, sure...I've got a full-time job, planning a wedding, three kids, one soon to be step-child, a part-time job/project and of course all the things that go along with all of those things. However, when I decided to write OTOD, I was working 60 hours a week (roughly,) had 2 kids, drove an hour and a half each way to work, along with everything else. I didn't make excuses then, I just wrote the damn thing. It's just weird to me. I don't know why I can't get it moving again. Maybe one day....
