Today's topic is beyond the blog. We're to write about writing in other arenas as well as anything interesting about us outside the blog.
I sort of dread this topic because I have so little going on outside the blog except work! Many of you know I am a mental health therapist doing contract work which means I see clients according to my own schedule but it entails an extremely large amount of paperwork that I have to do on my down time at home since the daytime hours are spent seeing as many clients as I can. I've always wanted to engage more in writing, but I write so much for my job (assessments, etc.) that I'm sort of worn. Even writing my blog posts is tiresome sometimes. That being said, one day I'd love to write a book. I'm just lacking the creativity right now. (I'd love to take a creative writing class, though!) I mentioned earlier I'd like to write essays, though I haven't gotten around to it yet. Really, I think freelance writing sounds so fun, but I haven't even started to think about how I could do that... mainly because I have no energy after the work I already do.
