A very moving tale ...
This is a very moving tale ... yes, literally, a moving one. That's what I've been doing for several months ... moving. And that's also why I haven't been writing.
Well, that and the fact that the pay for online writing almost zip. Zilch. Nada. Oh wait, one more ... bupkus!
But, it's really the moving that has hung up the writing.
It's hard to write when a writer has spent all day packing or unpacking boxes. It's hard to write while pulling a trailer piled high with belongings, down the highway in the middle of a snowstorm. Oh yes, there are plenty of things to write about at that moment. The fear of sliding off the road into a ditch. The anxiety of the trailer suddenly becoming unhitched and flying down the road backwards!
A writer can easily imagine any number of dire consequences while zipping down the road in the middle of a snow storm. But, with boxes packed in all around her and the cat in the carrier staring menacingly at the back of her head, a writer might find it easy to imagine things, but a bit harder to put them down on paper.
Well, all right. This writer finds it hard to put pen to paper when the cat is staring at her with slanted eyes, and whispering a curse.
However, breathe a sigh of relief. The move is over. Some of the boxes are even unpacked in the new house. And the writing is starting up again.
Well, at least for today.
(How about you ... was your last move a nightmare? Or smooth as silk?)
