Writing Again…

I had taken a pause from this blog for the past few months.

It’s been a crazy time!  We welcomed our third child in February.  Things were busy at home and hectic at work when I returned.  At first, I felt like I didn’t have time.  When I did have something to say, I thought it would be better later, when I could gather my thoughts and be more deliberate.  Then, after a few weeks, not writing became habit, and I felt doubt about returning to share here at all.

At the same time, busy seasons in life are the most important times to write, reflect, and remember.  That’s when growth happens, and we come back to these seasons most often to understand and process the changes.

All that to say I’m going to return to writing and sharing here.

In deciding, I appreciated this quote from The Writing Life, by Annie Dillard, which MacKenzie Bezos shared when she joined the giving pledge:

“Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book… The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now. Something more will arise for later, something better… Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.”

May we all share now our worthwhile words, rather than saving them for a uncertain future.  Stay encouraged, and have a great day!

One thought on “Writing Again…

  1. Zac, I did notice that you weren’t writing and missed seeing your comments. Many times your words gave encouragement to what I was doing. I’m currently trying to put together a love story which I never tried before. It’s always good to try something new! I still believe you should try writing that first book. Who knows, you may be a best -known author and not even know it.
