Hooie, Otherwise Known As Writer's Block

Okay. I want to tell you all about Chicas of Faith 2008, but I keep getting stuck on where to start.

"Start from the beginning," you say.

All righty....

Once upon a time in July of 2007, on a plane on my way home from Chicas of Faith 2007, I started praying and musing over where I would be going for our Chica adventure in 2008.....


"Ummm.....that's a little TOO far back," you say.

I know.

"Start from when you actually KNEW where you were going," you say.

All righty....

Once upon a time in I don't remember what month of 2007, after much prayer, we knew that we would be going to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for our Chica adventure 2008. It would be months of planning, decision making, praying, searching, re-searching, saving, praying....


"Meh. Still too early in the timeline," you say.

See my drama?

"Start the day you left for your trip," you say.

All righty....

Once upon a time, on the sweltering Louisiana 8th day of October, I attended PWOC; then skeedaddled out of there, dropped my friend at her home on my way out of town and hit the road for GGG's house in Texas.


"Och, that's really boring too! How about some pictures?" you say.

Yeah, about that... I didn't actually take any pictures until I got into downtown Philadelphia on the 9th.

"Hmm. Okay, well tell us more about your pre-retreat with GGG. There's GOT to be something good in there," you say.

I think you may be right. Let me think on that for a bit and I'll get back to you. Thanks for helping me work this out.

So what I want to know is, why you gotta be all up in my grill about MY blog when you haven't written much about it yourself. Hmmm????

Spill the whole thing!! I say that prolly because I was supposed to be there but was not there, and I just want all the details. Every little bit!!!

Really though, don't worry about if this or that is boring. Just turn off that inner editor and let it all pour out. you can go back and edit after.

Besides - we're all going to love it!!!

"Why you gotta be all up in my grill"

HYSTERICAL!!!

I, too, am suffering from the same syndrome, hence the blog title, "Where Do I Start?!?"

I'm committed to getting something up; details to come.

And you are obligated to posting lots of pics for your readers! :)
