I'd say:

 Krro atxan pamrel ke soli oe
 I have not written for much time

Here I'm using the indefinite -o to mark the duration (much time) for which this action (writing) has not been going on. This is a bit of a leap; not all languages allow duration to be specified for non-action in the same way as for actual action. Still, it looks pretty neat and rather plausible to me.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

mllte oe Carborundumhu.
I think it would be better to use infix <ol> instead of <am> in pamrel si just as Carborundum said. the reason for that is that you emphasize the fact that you havn't been writing for a long time but now you started again. the infix <am> just makes it somewhere in the past (tì'efumì oeyä).

Another simpler alternative: Oe pamrel ke sarmi.
