I used to write often, but have been away from it for about 8 years. It is always in my mind and on my "to-do" list, but daily life seems to keep creeping in. So today I am taking the first step in finding a place for motivation. I used to love writing short stories and always wanted to write a book, but I couldn't get past what a daunting task a book seemed to be. Now I've found myself unemployed with far too much time on my hands. Sounds like as good a time as any to get back to my passion.
