Question: When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing?
Answer: How cloudy can it get? More than enough. Since last November, we've been working on my momma's Trans-Aortic Valve Replacement surgery. After scopes of her stomach and large intestine, dental surgery to make sure there are no pockets of decay, and tests upon tests, we have a date--April 10.
Instead of writing, I've been filling the well that's been emptying quickly with reading, reading, and more reading. In times of stress, we sometimes have to step back and rest. Sit down and read. Search our whirring brains for peace. Thank my Lord and Savior, my family is all in to provide Momma with her choice to go for this surgery for an improvement in her quality of life. At eighty-eight, she 's due the support, love, and care we can lavish on her. Even though she has trouble accepting it.
And that's where I am. Writing isn't on the agenda until we have all this done and Momma is on the road to recovery.
Please keep us in your prayers.
