Who I Am

No matter how much I try to distance myself from it, writing has become a part of who I am. I can't function without it anymore. There's a sense of peace, actually, that comes from doing what you know you're meant to do. A sense of being. Who knows if this will always be the case for me, but for right now, I'm embracing it.



I'm gonna take a bit of a bloggy break and take advantage of my homeschool-free summer, getting some serious writing in for a few weeks. Or at least attempt to. I'll be back before you know it. Until then, happy writing!

Oh, and by the way, since Google Friend Connect is apparently leaving us high and dry, I've added a couple of ways for you to follow my blog on the side bar instead. I usually share a link to my posts on FB and Twitter as well. You can find me there via the contact tab above. Any other suggestions? I may cave and join Google+ too. IDK. We'll see. 

Writing is my remedy. My clarity...

Happy writing and enjoy your break. That last quote was deep. Poetry is apart of my clarity.

I keep hearing conflicting reports about GFC going away.
You'll probably want to join Google+, just don't link your blog profile to it. Linky Followers is another one.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Good luck with your writing! Love that sign. :)

Alex-Great suggestions. Thank you!

*hugs* I love writing - dedicated to watching movies and writing movie reviews. Enjoy your break!

Jack said...

I hope you can get a lot accomplished on your blogging break! Those are always helpful to give more time to writing.

Happy blog break. As a home-schooling mom, you really deserve it. I'm home with my kids full time, but teaching them... I leave that to the public schools. :)

ilima said...

Livia-I love your reviews, even when we disagree. :) Keep 'em coming.

Jack-I hope so too.

Suzi-It makes for really late nights getting my writing done.

For the love of all that is holy... *don't do G+ unless you know a professional that can help.

I'm in (on? at?) G+ but find it ridiculously hard to leave comments.

Just sa--

Have a wonderful down time :)

And I need to figure out what to do about Google Friend Connect. I don't want to lose all the blogs I follow that way. :(

You're so wonderful, Ilima! You're quickly becoming one of my favorite people! Serious. So proud of all that you're doing. And I loved the message you shared. :D

Friend connect is really leaving? Dang. It'll be curious to see how that effects things. BTW, you're awesome. :)

jaybird said...

Take that time to be who you are and do what you love!! I am happy you have the opportunity to do this and take the time for yourself. I am sure you will be creating writing brilliance in your bloggy break. See you when you get back!

And I hear ya. Writing is just...awesome.
