I don’t know if it was the trip, or the struggles with my home network, or not being able to go online for two weeks, or maybe the tremendous amount of writing I did last month. But I have felt tired, in an empty sort of way, all month. Perhaps it’s the heat, or the struggles with my teenage daughter this month that has gotten me down.

But I haven’t been able to get much writing done, or even editing, although lately my interest in editing has picked up somewhat. So I’ve done a lot of reading. I feel as though my heart was emptied out, and needs to be refilled before writing can commence.
