I’m not going to the writing conference I was thinking about in the spring. I’m not sure about this. It’s expensive but I was hoping the investment would be worth it to get me all inspired and stuff. But then I was thinking that what with buying a new house and all the homeschooling activities coming up and then the high holy days and then the regular old American and Christian holidays, I’d be lucky to get any extra time to write before the New Year. So I came to the conclusion that ambition and inspiration is not something I need more of right now since what ambition and inspiration I have is actually a terrible burden that makes me feel put-upon and bitter.
But I’ll admit to a good bit of yearning.
