I haven't done an IWSG post in years, but it's nice to be back!
And I guess that is what my post will be about today.
Over the last few years, and probably since I stopped blogging, I lost my way a bit. I've met a LOT of authors on Facebook and have made some amazing friends, but there is nothing quite like the support of the blogging community.
But now I have to find my way back in. Do people remember me? Do people want to know what I've been doing? It's quite scary coming back after being away. Thankfully, those who have found me have been so welcoming!
But it's not just about finding my way back with blogging. I am still trying to find my feet in terms of writing again. Two years of hardly any words coming out has messed with my head.
Can I still write as well as before? If not, will it come back over time? And again, will the people who used to read my books still want to hear from me?
I look at the books I've released and wonder where those incredible words came from. But back then, when I was writing, I was also busy. I was having fun with friends and having some kind of life. When you're forced to stay inside, you get used to it. You get used to not doing anything. It wasn't just the pandemic that stopped me - I was also ill and had to wait a long time for answers and eventually surgery. Knowing I can do things again now is something I am still getting used to, but I hope as I do more, the words will come more easily.
