Writing Around

I haven’t been posting much lately. I guess I’m glad that I had already started doing the Six Word Friday posts prior to my mom’s passing. I wanted to keep up with it and was able to- just barely. I would not have started it right afterward, though.

The problem is that I have no words.

More accurately, I have so many words and they are so powerful and important that I cannot seem to get them out. This frustrates me because my mother was a writer and I am a writer and I feel like this is what I am supposed to be doing to honor and pay tribute to her. But, much as they did with her in life, my words are tangled in a knot and I can’t seem to get out what needs to be said.

So, you’ll have to bear with me for a while as I work this junk out. It’s still very fresh. (not quite 3 weeks)

I also know that I am still a little numb. Less so, but still. One of my instructors said it didn’t really hit her until about two years after her dad died. So, I know that it takes as long as it takes.

and that’s okay.
