Distraction Needed

I have been writing pretty well during the past 2 weeks. I finally wrote years 2002 and 2003 which were pretty tough years and hard to write. However, feeling a little down, I made the decision to go back to my painting hobby for a couple of weeks and let go of writing. Recently I have been worried about not writing enough, making it feel more like a chore than a passion. I felt I needed that distraction to fall in love with writing again. If I end up with some good painting as an amature artist (self-taught and still learning), I will share a picture of my painting. I hope I create something I like.

Celebrate life!
