Where’s Megan?

Posted by admin on May 25th, 2011 filed in Books, General

Wait a second. I have a blog? One that I’m supposed to post on with some regularity? Hmmmm… that’s news to me.

Truth is, I’ve been feeling like my muse died lately. Or maybe just took a nice, long vacation. Hopefully somewhere nice, where she’s gaining all sorts of inspiration and insights for me to use when she gets back.

I’ve spent the last two weeks reading. It was a whole series, start to finish. While 5 books in just under 2 weeks would be nothing for pre-parenthood Megan, that’s kind of a lot now. And now that I’m done, maybe I can have my life back. Maybe my muse will return and I will do something, something creative! The problem with being a really good, involved reader is that when a book catches you, you can’t get away. You’re in it until the end and it’s difficult to imagine anything else during that time. It’s kind of like in the movie The Never Ending Story. You just want to hole up in some attic with snacks and find out what happens next. When you finally put down the book and it’s 2 weeks later, your kids have started pre-school, and you realize they have been helping themselves to bowls of ketchup each night for dinner, while you were off in literary land, and they liked it! I’m not reading anything now. I’m not going to pick up another book until May 31st, I swear!

    It is so nice to take a break from creativity and enjoy someone else’s for awhile! I am glad you did it. Abby would agree, a few bowls of ketchup never hurt anyone!

    Ketchup is good for you. I see no problems excpet the attic will be hot this time of year. Hole up in the basement with snacks, much better plan.
