Like many of you, I too started the new year with renewed inspiration and tackled my goals with a vigor that was slightly lacking towards the end of the year. One of those goals that I had been working on, and continue to do so, is writing.
But, but, you haven’t posted anything all year!
Yes yes, I know, and that’s where this confession comes in. Part of my blogging endeavor was initially created to put myself on a writing schedule, to have timelines that I had to stick to, and to keep my fingers from gathering dust. I’m here to tell you that even though I’ve been trolling the internet with little to no presence, I have not given up my New Year’s goal.
I hesitate to say “resolution” because it’s so finite, so easy to fail. A goal is something to aspire to, something that is obtainable, so different than the typical resolutions that we all commit to at the end of December and then let fizzle out as the new year progresses.
To the untrained eye, it seems as though I have failed in my writing goal for the new year. Much to the contrary, I’ve been creating something of a storm on my laptop, living room, and even local coffee shops with the flurries of keystrokes that have been going on! Even though the blog has been quiet, it’s the eye before the storm of literary creation.
If you missed one of the previous posts, To Boldly Go, I am running a comedy LARP next month at DunDraCon up in San Ramon, California. The story creation and character writing has been going swimmingly. So swimmingly, in fact, that I’m slightly disappointed to have only slotted 16 characters in the game! Though unlike some beloved Mutant Sagas that have been going on for years, I will try my darndest to keep within the limits of character creation for this game. Next one? I will in all likelihood add a good number of characters to the game list.
So while my presence on the internet may be slightly less active, fear not! I am, and will continue to use my creative powers for good. Keep an eye out for less frequent posts, writing updates, and photo shenanigans…
