Difficult Times

I am sorry that I have not been posting on this blog but I have been going through some very difficult times lately.

My mother died. We were very close. In the last few years she did suffer from dementia, so I did have some time to prepare for her death, but it is still very hard.

I have found it difficult to find motivation for blogging. Lately I have found myself mostly reading lighthearted romance novels, but they are not the kind of books that I want to review. I just needed an escape.

Of course, then I feel guilty because I am not reviewing books!

I have also struggled with SAD — Seasonal Affective Disorder. This winter has been just miserable, and it affected me very negatively. If it wasn’t for my husband, I don’t know what I would have done.

Now that the spring is here, I have begun writing again, and I have also begun reading more difficult literature lately.

I also have struggled to find a direction for this blog. I really do hope to write some book reviews soon, and I will also write about freelance writing. I am a writer in addition to being a great reader, and I want to write about both – writing and books.

See you soon!

    I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Any loss is devastating, but especially a loss of such a closed loved one, especially a mother. I hope that the new season will help you as you grieve and mourn. Maybe you can post stuff that you write so as to inspire you?

  2. Thank you so much. I am going to post more writing in the future.
