First of all, I’m sorry it’s been a little while since I last posted. I’ve been feeling conflicted about what to blog about. Having started several different posts I wasn’t feeling connected to any of them.
What I’ve been writing feels too surface level and doesn’t have much meaning. It has felt like something is missing. That’s why I haven’t been writing in the past couple of weeks, I haven’t been able to figure out what.
Let Me Explain
This blog project was originally intended for a few things: creating samples of writing to show potential writing clients (which I haven’t’ tried very hard to find) and to get my feet wet with writing again (which I think I’ve successfully done.) I think it’s time to start taking this blog in a slightly different direction.
Right now, I’m not feeling satisfied by a lot of what I’ve been writing here, but I’m glad I did it. From here I need to get back to working on my fiction writing, which I kind of started in July I just haven’t’ gotten very far yet. I also want to create posts I’m proud of.
Story in the Works
I’ve had one particular story in my head since I was about 16 (that was 8 years ago) and I’ve done a lot of work on it over the years, but it’s still far from complete. Lately, I’ve been feeling that I won’t be able to write anything new until I finally finish it. Every time I do, it always comes back into my head and starts influencing what I’m working on.
Unfortunately, one major thing is standing in my way right now. I can’t find the file. I got a new computer a few months ago and it doesn’t appear to be backed up in the places I thought it was. So that’s clearly step one before I can do anything else. Luckily, I do have a hard copy, so if all else fails, it’s not completely lost forever. I’ll just have to type it all over again.
What about the Blog?
Don’t fret, I plan to continue doing this, just in a different way. I’ve talked about my art and writing a little bit on here, but I want to talk about them more. I will write about what I’m currently working on, any classes I’m taking about the subjects, and talk about things on those subjects. I will also continue making reviews for books and movies. There have only been a couple so far, but there are more to come I promise.
Thank you so much for sticking with me. If you have any thoughts about this change and moving forward please leave them down in the comments. I look forward to making more content I’m passionate about and sharing my journey with you.
