I've been in a funk about this blog, uncertain where to go with it or if I want to carry on. It has functioned as a break from "real" writing for a long time, but lately I've been getting existential thoughts about continuing or starting over from zero. Nothing's decided. Fortunately there are plenty of active writers in the meantime to whom I can turn for inspiration, a smattering of whom are listed and recommended for your reading pleasure:

I LOVE Tracy (Suburban Mom)!! She's one of my pallies!

I know the feeling all too well of what you are going through. Hang in there. :)

I get in a funk now and then. When I'm blocked or don't have time to write, like the past couple of weeks, I take time off and publish archived posts. I hope to post something soon.

Maybe you just need to take a break and not think about the blog. Some of my best ideas come when I'm not writing.

Whatever works best for you. But know this. You are such a talented writer, and you are meant to write.

Also, thank you so much for featuring my blog with the others.

These are inspiring blogs and so are your two blogs, James.

The main thing is keep writing.

Lin, thank you. I'll hang tough. ;)

Lauren, coming from such a talent, your words are a great encouragement. Thank you!

Fullet, great advice and much appreciated. It reminds me of Raymond Carver's notebook, containing in all caps: WRITE MORE.
