It has been far too long since I have written. I won’t bother with excuses, although I have some great ones. For now it will suffice just to say that LIFE has been happening. I’ll elaborate, I’m sure, someday, on the journey I’ve been on this past year, but not now. I am taking this moment now to renew my commitment to write. I am going to do my best to overcome all of my perfectionistic tendencies that has hindered the creativity and enjoyment that comes with expressing myself through words. No more “I don’t have enough time to get it just right.” I am going to write. I’m going to write even if my work is less than distinguished. I’m going to write even if my ideas aren’t completely developed. I’m going to write even if it shows my shortcomings. I’m going to forget all the things that are supposed to make a good writer, and I’m going to ignore my need to be a good writer, and I’m going to just simply write…because I want to…because it’s fun.
