So as the title of this blog post indicates, I am finally diving back into writing creatively. It has been far too long since I last looked at my medieval romance, but I'm trying not to get mad at myself for not working on it. I was super busy and I can't help that. At least I'm opening it back up now =)
Alright, so on Wednesday I opened up my AHR document and read through the first two chapters, adding here and there when I thought of something new. Aside from a few additions (and very small ones at that), I LOVE my story! I truly forgot how much I enjoyed Lachlan and Meara's characters. On some level, I think I made myself forget so that it didn't hurt so much when I was forced to do school work instead of working on my story. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I think this story rocks. The second I started reading, the entire world melted away and I was once again in the Scottish Highlands. Whole scenes and conversations popped into my head, making me eager to dive back in and start writing again!
I know there will be stress involved, especially in the beginning as I get back into the swing of things, but I'm very excited to be back with my creative writing. Lord, how I missed it.
Have you guys ever taken a long break from writing? What did you find the most difficult about jumping back in?
