This blog is all about writing in general and my writing in particular. I hardly, if ever, talk about personal stuff here. But writing takes from life, and so here I go about my silence so far this month.
In the first week of April, we lost my sister-in-law to cancer, and the last week of April we lost my mother-in-law too in an unusual, and somewhat unprecedented (in her city and community, at least) way: a snakebite.
We’re all trying to pull together now, cope as a family, as families do.
But inside of me is a wall of silence. I haven’t written much since end of April, which is about 20 days now. Somewhat unnatural for me, because I write (or should I say, used to write) daily. Blogging seems like a burden, but I miss all my friends, the regulars who always visit and comment, and those who dropped by in April for the A to Z Challenge.
April, which was supposed to be a happy blogging month for me, turned into a personal nightmare– a fact that showed in my lack of visits to other blogs, and non-response to comments.
To all those who commented, I plan to visit you back once I get back to myself a little, and get hold of a good internet connection. I won’t have proper internet till the end of May, but come June and I hope to get back to blogging.
In between, I’ll try and post when the muse takes me, or the need to talk is too insistent to ignore, like now. Take care, all, and for those who left me a message on the email and my A to Z Challenge Cohosts, and team, I love you all and I’m very grateful.
Here’s to all of you till I post again, which, hopefully, should be soon.
