“You only fail if you stop writing.” – Ray Bradbury
“I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done.” – Steven Wright
It has been quite a while, and I regret being away from this for so long. “Life gets in the way” is a poor excuse.
It’s common experience that other priorities sometimes force themselves to the top of the list, but the harsh truth of writing is that people more busy than me are blogging and writing at a prolific rate.
You make time for what you love, what you want, what you need.
Writing is something I really want, so I never doubted that I would get started with this again. I thought I could in December, and when that didn’t happen, I told myself I had a New Year’s resolution to uphold.
“A New Year’s resolution to start blogging again? How trite,” I rationalized.
So now, at the end of January, I am committing to return. Perhaps this won’t have the over-reaching “every day” commitment I tried to maintain in August and September. But I will commit to frequent entries. Some of these can follow the daily format I used before — today’s Thursday Tirade about quality versus quantity, for example. Others will be whatever strikes my fancy.
In any event, I welcome back your thoughts, your feedback, and your interaction. Thanks for your patience; let’s get back into this.
