I know that it isn't uncommon. That fall into the abyss of not being able to write, whether termed "writer's block" or "loss of inspiration" (or "in need of nap"), is one that I have hit before and been able to struggle out of the pit. It's just been more difficult lately. I think I put a lot of pressure on myself. A girl has goals, y'know. I have work to do: at my job, at my home, at my church. I am redesigning two websites, co-coordinating a women's conference for next summer (which means planning starts NOW), working on a chapter for publication, reviewing for multiple outlets now. Trying to keep up not only on the important professional issues in libraries dealing with funding, ebooks, and technology, but my personal goals with the chicken ordinance in my city, my home life, my gardens, my knitting, my health. Top this off with being a solo parent of two children with their own needs (typical and special), and at times I just feel that cliff crumble out beneath me.

So, things may seem a little quiet here for a bit, but I know this is just the ebb and flow of Life. Thanks for watching the waves with me.
