So I'm back. And I have stories to tell.
During exams, I planned on taking a week away from writing. I stopped working on my stories, stopped posting here, stopped doing any work that wasn't specifically for school. Then I finished my classes, went to my friends' graduation (which, funny enough, turned out to be my own graduation even though I'm not technically finished with classes for one more semester), watched the Avengers, was introduced to Firefly (way too late), went home to visit family, moved back to start taking summer classes, started taking summer classes, and suddenly, I realized almost three weeks had gone by and I hadn't written a word! Ok, well maybe a few texts and e-mails, but that doesn't count.
I started writing again on Monday, and while it may have been a little rough at first, it's almost as if I never stopped. Today I came back here for the first time in a while and the first post I saw was this great post by Martha at Martha's Musings on The Right Not To Write. If anyone has ever or ever starts feeling guilty about taking a break from writing, I encourage you to take a look at it. Because, let's face it, we all need a break every once in a while. Anyone who spends there whole life staring at a word document or with a pen in their hand will run out of things to say far faster than those who are out there living.
And then we get to come back and write about it :)
