Dear Apricot Pie,
I am ashamed.
I would call myself a writer but I haven’t written anything for months. I am ashamed to say the least.
I want to apologize for being absent. I know I'm not obliged too, but I want to anyway.
Yes, of course I have my excuses. My brother broke his leg badly; I've been BUSY with school and organising homeschool activities.
But what’s really important is that I missed everyone on here. There had been some nights where I was lying back in bed, and then suddenly thinking about Homey’s stories, or Little Women’s poems, or Lucy Anne’s great comments, and Benjamin’s excellent essays…the list goes on and on.
I have some things to admit: I actually enjoyed not writing. I enjoyed not having to worry over what my character was to do next. It was great.
But after a couple of months, I had to be honest with myself. I missed writing. I missed Apricot Pie hugely, and the lovely community here. But I kept putting it off again and again.
A few weeks ago I started writing again. It was just a little at a time. Sometimes only a few sentences, sometimes a whole page. I enjoyed it thoroughly. And all the while, I had AP in the back of my mind.
I want to thank each and every one of you on here.
Each of you have been an inspiration to me; each of you. Apricot Pie has motivated me to write, and I wouldn't have written as much as I have today without you there.
So thankyou, Apricot Pie. I have met so many amazing fellow writers who help and critique my writing.
Special thanks to Megan who always comments and critiques my writing, and more importantly prays for me, even when I haven’t asked her too.
P.S. When I finish school, I am planning to visit overseas. America is on my list. I would love to visit you all.
