One paragraph at a time

So, I'm frustrated. I'm sure it isn't the first or last time you'll hear me say it but, I am. It's really not that big a deal considering I'm blessed to have a computer at all. And when I think back to, what, 10/15 years ago, not all that many people had home computers. Or did they?

So I sit here looking at the clock knowing any time soon my husband could arrive. I'm glad he will but at the same time, I'll probably have to stop what I'm doing, regardless of what I'm typing and let it wait until later because he has work to do. Thank you Jesus for the work, but what if I'm on a roll. What if I'm writing something that takes me beyond just an hour or two to write?

Okay, so I'm not a paid writer and nothing terrible will happen if I must stop writing. But, I don't want to stop. Sometimes it just feels good, doesn't it? Like the blog I wrote about 1,095 Forks seriously, when I began writing that day, I had absolutely no idea what it was I would write. And now as I re-read it, I'm still not sure I had any idea of what I was writing, but you get my point don't you. Sometimes it just feels good to write and express ourselves no matter how ridiculous or how passionate the piece may be. It's an outlet, and we all need an outlet.

I suppose I just need a good laptop. One that I can carry around wherever I go. Stop for a cup of coffee and write. Take lunch; write. Run to the doctors office; write. Well there it is, the answer clear and simple. Do you think if I appeal to my husband he'll just run out and buy me one? Me either. Well, until I get that good paying job, I just may have to continue this game of on again, off again writing. It's better than nothing but I'm gonna keep on dreaming anyway.

Oh, oh...there he is now. Write to you later.

Oh! I don't know how I missed this post of yours! Yes, continue writing, no matter what! This is so good for us, to just write our feelings; write whatever comes to you, even if it is just for yourself. Writing becomes a wonderful habit or addiction and I find myself not being able to tear away from my computer until whatever it is that I am writing makes sense. You are doing great!! Anita

When I started writing a blog Eric, my very old skool hubby, didn't really appreciate the power of the computer so he rarely was on it,which gave me the ability to write when ever I wanted. But somewhere between then and now he started doing our banking and working the stock market, so it seems like now, all 3 of us are juggling the computer. I had mentioned a lap top and he raised his eyebrow in interest and then said...we'll see. So, I guess we'll see.
