Time for a Revamp

And now for something completely different

It’s been over a year since my last post.

My how time flies.

A few month after that last post, I was diagnosed with cancer. So needless to say, blogging was not my priority. Neither was reading, writing or knitting — the three main topics that made up A Creative Yarn.

Recently, I started another blog. A writing blog. A blog that only had one post. That site didn’t feel right. Even though I only ever posted sporadically here, A Creative Yarn is my blogging home. I like this little blog. So I think it’s time for a resurrection.

But it’s going to be a little different this time.

You see, I don’t knit much anymore. It’s not that I don’t want to. There is just no time to fit it into my life right now. The Yarn in A Creative Yarn was in reference to my knitting hobby, and I would periodically post about my knitting projects.

Over the past year, I’ve spent most of my free time focusing on writing — or trying to anyway. My main goal of becoming a published author has not changed over the years. When you’re diagnosed with a disease that could possibly kill you and you survive it like I did, you reflect on the important things in life and what you want to accomplish before your time is up.

I have a shitty, boring, suck-the-life-right-out-of-you kind of job. I’ve yet to win the lottery or inherit millions from an unknown wealthy relative, so I’m stuck doing what I have to do until I can do what I want to do. The one thing I want to achieve in the time that I have left on earth is to become a published author and earn a living as a writer.

And that, my friends, is the new focus of A Creative Yarn.

        Aww…thanks 🙂 It’s fading out now and I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to get it done again.

        I’m happy you got through it too. Sometimes blogger friends disappear and you never get to find out what happened to the person. That makes me sad. I’m glad I’m not sad about you anymore!

        Although I will miss your knitting posts, I look forward to seeing you talk about your writing, in whatever form you will be sharing.
