holding it together

i am getting a combination of emotions regarding starting up this writing project again.

honestly, i haven't written anything other than my blog since last year's NaNo ended.

please understand

it is not for lack of trying.

i've started projects. 

 pages upon 
pages upon 
pages upon 

of ideas. and not one of them has spoken to me. 

this is madness. i've been writing since i was seven. why is this suddenly such a block? 

insert frustrated groan here.

maybe i'm trying too hard. maybe i need to just let go and write. 

excuse me, please. 

i need to seek the story again.

~blessings abound,


  1. hope things start to come together for you!

  2. dear one
    let the story find you.
    so much love.

  3. I am so with you. A year ago I was deeply engaged with the characters from my most recent novel project-now I am lucky if I visit them every other week. I need to reclaim those characters as my own and get to know them again-they have to be getting lonely by now.

  4. Oh Rachel, your words are always so inspiring. I'm sure when the time comes, Father will grant you the story that He desires you to write. Praying for all of us NANO crazies :)
