I stopped blogging for a year. Ooops.
I’d be lying if I said there was a good reason for it. I’d be lying if I said I even remembered why. However, I do have a vague memory of obsessively getting into Netflix….and then my life going down a slippery sloppy slope of late night binges on classic tv shows. After that, I don’t know what happened. The last year contained a plethora of highs and lows, tears and laughter, doubts and fears…and at the same time moments of intense clarity. There were births and deaths, family drama, vacations, health scares, victories, and on some occasions everything went as planned.
There were at least a dozen times I thought to restart this whole blogging situation. It had been fun. I had gotten a nice response from people and I had liked it. I also realized that I really love to write. Writing actually started taking up more and more of my time. I wrote a pilot. Then I rewrote it. Then I wrote a 2 pager for a teen interview show. After that I wrote a webseries. Then I had to get a new notebook because I had crammed so much writing and ideas into the first one. In the end, I realized none of that writing was going to help me earn a living in the immediate future. So, I snapped out of it and started to focus on a job that would. That was, I think, when all creativity drained from my body like money drains from my bank account. It wasn’t pretty.
However, in the last few months I have once again felt some creativity in my system and I guess now is as good a time as any to get back on the blogging bandwagon. I look forward to sharing with you, all 5 of you, the people, places and things that have been inspiring me as of late.
I hope the last year treated you all well. I promise to check in more often from now on :)
