SQLNewBlogger, Week 3

I have a confession to make: I haven’t been writing much this week.

Last weekend, I didn’t feel well and didn’t do much of anything. This week, I’ve been buried in work and didn’t have time. Because of those, I missed Tuesday’s post, and I don’t have a writing prompt or a recap ready for this coming week’s SQL New Blogger Challenge post. Life has gotten in the way of writing.

This is what happened the last time I stopped. And the time before that. It can be intimidating to start writing again, especially in a public forum.

I had a plan to write a piece about a situation I recently encountered at a client site. It won’t be finished before Tuesday. But you know what? That’s OK. It’ll still be a good post another day.

For today, for this week, I’ll just write. And I hope that you’ll do the same.
