Not totally gone

Hello, remember me? I know I left Novel Racers last year as I was doing b****r all writing and was busy moving abroad. I just wanted to stop by to say hello and let you all know that I still read this blog and visit everyone on the blog roll. Even though I haven't been commenting. *slaps wrist*
A few days ago an idea sparkled its way into my mind just as I was falling to sleep. I was very tired. Then I wasn't very tired. My mind was buzzing with ideas. I haven't felt this way for a long time about writing. It is exciting. Scary, but exciting. I am not allowed to work here in the US. Immigration won't allow it. I have time. Time to write. I can do it. I will do it. Oh yes I will.
I am not thinking about trying to find an agent/publisher here in America.
I am thinking about writing. I had a bit of a 'woe is me' moment when I got a bit depressed. I was expecting it as I am thousands of miles away from everyone and everything I know. Even though I was expecting it, it wasn't much fun.
I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and it is getting brighter. I am sure the little idea sparkle fairy helped.
Hopefully I will drop by at bit more to the blogs and comment. I don't want to be totally forgotten.
My main blog will be getting deleted soon but my expat blog is up and running if you would like to visit it.

Thanks Helen. It feels good to have the bug back again!

I'm pleased to hear that you're feeling positive about this. Don't be too hard on yourself about feeling depressed - it's a normal part of moving cultures - yes, even to America!

Happy writing.
