Writing from a Coffee Bean About not Writing

I am feeling helpless and isolated. Writing is a thing of the past.


I do not have broadband!

I have to sneak in time between potting plants and putting on cushion covers to rush down to the Coffee Bean across the road to do whatever little freelance writing work I can still do.

I have been approving comments and not replying to the ones so generously left on my blog, I apologize to each and every one of you who has commented in the past week or two.

Thanks for visiting, caring, and leaving those comments. Those really cheer me up!

I have been running from pillar to post doing all kinds of things these past two weeks, and the lack of broadband means that there is no late-night browsing or blogging. I did not know I will miss it so, but I do. And I miss each and every one of you:)

Here is to getting back on broadband by next week!

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !

    Hope the in-laws didn’t bother you too much. I know mine drive me batty at times. I love them… but mostly for my wife’s sake. Good people but I like them best in small doses.

    We’ll be here.

    Here’s how you handle the in-laws… speaking from experience, of course. When they walk in the door, greet them warmly, share a moment of pleasant conversation, then hand them the list of chores they are expected to do before feeding time. They’ll give you a funny look, but if you hand them a broom, they’ll sweep! 😀

    Thanks Ely, for your words here and also for the email you sent me. I will reply soon, I promise!

    Kym, you are an absolute sweetheart for worrying about me….the only other person who worries when she does not hear from me is mum:)

    Lofter, I am grateful, so grateful in fact that I am at yet another Coffee bean near my writing class replying to your comment. I AM frazzled, house not done up yet and got in laws coming for a visit this Monday….haaalp!

    Dear Dee, I imagine how uncomfortable is lack of broadband for your job or your blog, but it’s happens. Few months ago I couldn’t use my computer , because it didn’t work for almost one month and I was driving crazy, because you feel isolated but I discovered many other things to do and one week flies away very quickly. We look
    forward to hearing from you
    a hug Ely
