Focus

This Saturday I have an appointment with the local writer in residence to discuss my writing goals and where to focus my writing energy. I'll bring along two novels that I've made less than half hearted attempts at writing and maybe a blog post or two. Ideas are easy to come by. Actually writing isn't. That about sums up my life in so many areas. It's much easier thinking about doing all kinds of things than actually doing them. There was a point when I realized I enjoyed reading books about writing every bit as much, if not more some days, than writing.

I'm feeling distracted by life at the moment and focusing any writing on blog posts seems out there in the distance somewhere. So if any of you have any burning questions you'd like me to answer or throw out a topic for me to write about I'd be open to that challenge. Give me an idea and I can write about it. Trying to think it up myself at this point seems futile.

You could write about me and all my glory I suppose.. ha ha just kidding! :) I think I know a lot about how you are now, and how you think now.. but not a lot about you growing up, or as a young adult. Unless it relates to something in your life today, we don't really hear much about you in that sense. Would love to hear more!

You gotta love writing to be able to do that! zzzzzz

Questions:
How did you come to live in all the different places? Were you a writer as a kid? Do you know any stories about your ancestors?
