That kind of leads me to ask myself now, “When will I act and speak?” To be honest, I have no idea. I don’t think I’m completely finished processing. I’ll let you all know once I do though. That should make for a heck of a blog post.
I’ve shared a lot on writing and my writing process, history, inspirations, etc. I kind of feel like I’ve laid the foundation. I haven’t covered everything but I have written dozens of blog posts focused on writing. I think I need and want to veer to the middle for awhile (maybe for the foreseeable future) and write about other things. What exactly? No clue but it will be written about.
I’ve tried to thread my personality into the previous blog posts and sometimes I’ve done so well and other times, it feels like I went through the motions. To know me is to get a full wash of my absurd thoughts and takes on whatever the heck I’m processing through (my wife knows this very well).
I never wanted to blog just to be that guy who carries around business cards with website and blog info on it. I knew if I fell into that trough of douchery, I would put out more swill and slop than worthy content. I wanted to blog to simply create a platform for my writing, which I’ve done and continue to improve upon. I’ve kept away from looking up the analytics of my website because I don’t want to care or be moved by the numbers. People who come to read the blog should not be expected to prop up my ego. I’m not in it for that.
From the beginning, I stated that I would evolve as a writer through this blogging process and I still believe that. I think I’m transitioning to a place where I can enjoy and have fun with the blog. That’s the point. Writing should never be a job or “have to” for me. Once it does, I’ve sacrificed it to the gods of mundane and stupor. Don’t expect that any time soon.
