I've started a new blog - just temporarily, and with a specific purpose that has nothing to do with this one. But, that new blog made me think of this old one, which stays here limping along, mostly being updated when I need a hole to scream into.
I love this blog - love being able to look back on it at all the things that have changed for me over the years that I've kept it....almost seven years apparently, though I know that I've been very poor at doing it for the most recent couple of them.
The Beautiful Girl was asking me to update this recently, but I think that sometimes I feel that this is a space I turn to when I want to work through a problem I'm having. Usually, not a personal one, as that would go into my paper journal. It's often a creative one...or a lack-of-creative-powers one. And I guess that lately I've been far more successful at keeping my work on the page, and getting my writing done in a dedicated manner.
I've been having a break from writing for a bit though - trying to gear up to start a new project...or rather, to restart a project that I've been trying and failing at for a while. So, perhaps that's why I'm in the mood to blog. Hopefully, from next week I'll be going at it without pause. I'm leaving the internet and other distractions behind to head into the Italian hills.
Mostly, it's scary, because if I can't write there, then there are no excuses - no complaints about lack of time or space to think. There's only me to blame. I hope that doesn't happen.
