I haven't blogged in a looooong time. I know. I'd like to apologise, except I'm not really sorry; I've really enjoyed the break. And the main problem is that I feel like I've run of things to say. *shrug* It happens. All good.
But anyway, I just - like literally less than one minute ago - had a Moment. You know what I mean. One of those moments when you're reading along, and something connects with a problem you've been having, or a thought you'd been thinking, and then you look up, and something else connects, and lights come on in your brain.

I read this sentence by Davin Malasarn over on Glam's blog:
I challenge you not to see those decisions as right or wrong, but as just another span in an ever-flowing path that is your writing career. It will ebb and flow but it will never freeze unless you let it.
That alone is wonderful enough. But just as I was considering this in relation to writing, which I have done practically none of since April holidays due to a severe lack of time and brain, an ad came up on TV. Superficially, it's unrelated - an ad about stopping at train tracks on the red signal, instead of running the red. It's a pretty good ad, actually, as warning-ads go - and it finished with this line, in big letters on the screen:
Some things are worth waiting for.
*bazaam*. Lights sparkling.
It might not mean much to you guys, but it means a lot to me. Writing is worth waiting for, and none of my decisions regarding it are wrong unless I let myself stagnate. I haven't been writing, but I'm not stagnant - ideas are firing in my head and I have at least two new stories I'm 'working' on, plus some old half-finished shorts I'm itching to play with.
I'm going slowly, but I'm not stagnant - so everything is okay.
And I like it when everything's okay :)
