Ehh, what’s up doc?

Ehh, what’s up doc?

Good question. I’ve had zero time for writing, the sequel to my book is on pause, etc.

So my question is, “God, what would you have me do writing wise? You created me with the urge and desire to write? What will it be, Lord?”

Writing a novel is an emotionally and physically draining task for me or labor of love rather. I put so much of myself into it, into the characters, and I currently don’t have the strength to give the sequel to my firstborn book baby what it deserves.

I’m the solo mom (only involved parent/not a co-parent) of a son on the autism spectrum (ASD), and we are homeschoolers of the unschooling persuasion. My son turned 16 recently, and apparently according to other ASD moms, the 16th year was one of the toughest years with their ASD kiddos.

Hormones + ASD = Hell on earth for the child and the parent(s) 

I’ve recently experienced exhaustion levels I felt I’d die from, begged God to rapture us on numerous occasions to relieve our suffering, ugly cried for days on end into my pillow, forgot to wash said pillow many times, didn’t care, too tired.

So what to blog? It’s something I am prayerfully seeking God about because I miss writing so much but don’t have it in me to write my next novel quite yet.

Topics I am prayerfully contemplating – parenting an ASD kid as a solo mom, the praying life, suffering and faith (so exciting, right?), depression, OCD, trying to parent an ASD kid alone with health issues of my own, the Spirit-filled life, and sprinklings on writing as God leads me (especially in regards to it as an unquenchable calling He Himself placed in those whom He’s called to write).

Happy to have written a little something today. 🙂

  1. Maybe you could write a couple (few) short stories involving your book’s characters. Little prequels or little sequels? Those are much smaller bites than a novel but keep your right brain going.

    I read something recently and I’m sorry because I’ve forgotten the source but in it the writer said, ‘consistency was key’ that if you just consistently wrote 25 words a day, rather than waiting until you were inspired to write a thousand (or fill in the blank) that you would get your story finished sooner and it’s all because of the consistent act of writing. That it is consistency that forms the habits that are eventually hard wired into us and help us form discipline. I have been trying to live by that. No matter how I feel or what’s going on, I write something. Sometimes it’s literally one sentence, but I do feel better. Go figure huh?

    Meanwhile, I hope things ease up for you soon, my friend.

    Hugs,
    Annie
