OK, so I’m trying something.
Starting today, I’m going to attempt to blog every day of the month of December.
Judging by how long it’s taken me to just sit the hell down and type this (like, seriously, all day), I’m not expecting this to go well. But, I need to do something. I need to get unstuck. I need to get moving. I need to feel like I’m accomplishing something creative again.
I have such grandiose plans of all this writing I want to do, all these stories I want to tell, but I’ve been buried under a mountain of unfinished work for so long that I just don’t write anymore.
Sure, I try to journal everyday, but that’s for my sanity, not an audience. I “wrote” a book but it’s never been finished enough for me to share parts of it much less submit all of it. I had a blog. It actually apparently changed somebody’s life. (For the better, no less!) I’d even attempted reviving it. (The blog, not the life.) Totally didn’t work. It just didn’t feel relevent anymore. It didn’t fit me anymore. And don’t even get me started on what Twitter has become. Oof.
So, here I am, on a brand-new WordPress site that, as far as I know, nobody is aware exists. In fact, I think I’m going to hold off on linking to the people and sites that inspired me to do this in the first place just to give me a little breathing room as I try to figure out how to do this again. Rediscover my voice and all that.
I don’t know if this is going to work. I’m not sure if I’ll find the time or the drive but I’m going to try. It may not be pretty but at least I’m giving it a shot. Here goes nothing.
