It’s amazing that I haven’t written anything on WordPress since last April, but that is totally my fault as I’ll explain later. Having got all that off my chest, I can tell you that I spent October and November 2019 in Australia and New Zealand and Christmas quietly at home. In 2019 we went to Holland to the tulip fields at Keukenhof, spent a weekend on Anglesey and spent a week on the Isle of Wight. But enough about travelogues, the main purpose of coming back to write on WordPress was to get me out of the turpour I’ve got myself into of late. I’ve got many projects on the go at the moment: a major novel, my autobiography, several short stories yet to be finished, and so many ideas jotted down on bits of paper,
I might be forgiven for not writing a thing since last April, but not by anyone else. The trouble is my WordPress account is not something I look at regularly, if fact hardly ever. Then suddenly the app logo catches my eye and I realise upon opening the app that I haven’t looked it for some time and to my horror it’s been 9 months! The main reason I looked at WordPress again was because I’ve got many projects on the go at the moment and I want to get out of the torpor I’ve found myself in. Hopefully writing this piece will get my juices going again. I’ve got these projects ‘in progress’ at the time of writing: a major novel, my autobiography, several short stories yet to be finished and hundreds of other ideas jotted down here and there waiting to be expanded and down on proverbial paper (actually a computer). So if that sounds self indulgent, it is. One of the functions of getting older is that if life is comfortable and easy (as it often is in retirement), everything outside the normal day to day stuff seems tedious and time consuming, so half the time I can’t be bothered. That won’t butter any parsnips, as the old saying goes, so getting motivated to do anything out of the ordinary, is an effort. So watch this space, I’ll be doing more writing soon.
