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.
