Taking the First Step

After a long, drawn-out hiatus from writing, I have been itching to get back into a routine of posting and reading my favorite online writers again. I made it through the summer, pushed through the bar exam (barely escaping with my life, I tell you), and survived the move to Houston with very few bumps and bruises. I am settled and have a new desk at which I can compose new thoughtful ramblings about my fresh start in the city - but I find myself in the grip of the age-old enemy: writer's block.

I know it is only a matter of time before I find some new insight from my new circumstances - whether in the form of work gossip, dating drama (or lack thereof), family hijinxs, or whathaveyou. And I even have a few ideas rolling around in my (otherwise quite empty) brain. But I can't seem to get it out there into words.

So this is an exercise for me to just start trying again, and an opportunity for anyone with ideas to offer or questions about me to help spur on the writing process by placing their bid now for a topic suggestion.

I have to admit, though, I think the new desk really will help. :) Stay tuned.


  1. i like your new desk.. it looks like my baby....

  2. I like this development. very much.

  3. How did I miss this? So glad you passed the bar, and know your family is so proud of you!

    I've been going thru the writer's block, too, and just last night posted about plain old ordinary stuff that I've been doing, as it had been more than a month. I decided what I need to do is just keep a notebook or scrap piece of paper of ideas as they come to me, or save news articles I read that have good ideas that I can steal...because sometimes I just sit here and draw a blank.

    Look forward to hearing about your new job and new digs and surroundings and office gossip!
