A New Stage

It's no secret that I've been suffering from writer's block.

Part of it is the fact that because I work in a parish, sitting down on my off time to write about religious topics feels like work. And not work I really care to do, especially when I'm supposed to be getting away from work.

I've been seriously considering bringing this blog to a close simply because I don't think I have anything else to say. It's all been said or is perhaps being said better by someone else.

Still...this blog has been a wonderful outlet for me over the last several years, and I've met many friends, learned many things and I admit it's still a bit of an attachment. So, instead of hanging it up I'm switching gears for awhile.

That's right...I signed up for NaNoWriMo for the first time.

Perhaps, I thought, if I can put my focus into a non-religious topic, perhaps I'll find my Catholic muse again, and my motivation.

Or, perhaps, once November hits, because I'm supposed to be working on a novel, I may be struck once again by great topics for the blog.

Who knows? In any case, expect more erratic posts about random topics of interest to me (if not by anyone else) and, if you REALLY want me to post something, feel free to post your own random questions to spark my motivation.

After all, one of the things I love to do is answer sincere questions about our faith by people seeking to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ.

Until my next inspiration.....

Excellent post and been suffering the same block so what if we pray to the
Holy Spirit for each other and then I know all will be well.

Blessings and peace for you dear friend.

Welcome aboard, Adoro! This will be my third go around.

Please accept my invitation to be a Writing Buddy. You can find me under "LarryD".

And thanks for the reminder - I need to start thinking about my next novel...

Adoro said...

Fr. Joseph ~ Thank you and yes indeed, prayers!

LarryD~ I visited your profile today, not under my blog name. But you're still not showing up as my "buddy". It says all one has to do is visit an author's profile, so is perhaps that feature not currently active this far out from the start date?

Seems to be a natural trend to blogging--so understand. I tried to shut mine down too--just two days ago--but, well, I am controlled by forces beyond my control. Sheesh. I am going back to my drawing. My blog will just end up like most others--just a ruin where no one blogs anymore. Good luck on writing that book.

Adoro - email me and tell me your NaNaWriMo name (if you want), and I'll see if I can add you. It might not be "active" until Nov 1, but I'm not sure.

My dear wife finished a 90,000 word book this summer. She's really got something, I think. We have it out to a few first readers. If she'd have waited until November she'd have rocked it out. However, one musn't wait when the Muse is on. It's projected as a trilogy so who knows, maybe she'll nail #2 in November. Good luck to both Adoro and LarryD. I'm still deciding whether or not to have another go at it this year.

Adoro - looks like the NaNo site is up and running. Email me your NaNo name and we can be buddies! My email is lgd0708(at)yahoo(dot)com

Happy Halloween! (and All Saints Day, and All Souls Day too!)

LarryD ~ I added you as "buddy" today -it's not under this name. :-) Hope you figured out who I am!
