In the beginning, blogging/writing was helpful to my everyday existence. Then, it became a task that was hard to make happen. Since then, my husband has died unexpectedly and I find myself once again having the need to write and express myself. So, I consider this question: is writing only for times when the emotions are intense and need to be vented to anyone who will listen? For some, I know their best writing happens when there is a crisis or some emotional extreme that propels them into putting words to paper. I’m hoping to use this new found writing energy to complete a book proposal I started just over 2 years ago on effective co-parenting through and after divorce regardless of the sexual orientation of the parents. For me, the immediate crisis is over but I am finding this new journey of single parenting teenage boys a time for reflection and writing and hopeful eventual new path for me as a single adult. I look forward to sharing my journey with those who wish to join me.
