Okay-okay-okay, first things first, I’m back.
It’s been over a month (I think; wasn’t exactly counting the days) but now I’m back.
There are several reasons for my absence, but the big one is actually pretty simple:
1. My life got really busy.
2. I got really lazy.
Well, that isn’t entirely true. I just lost a lot of motivation to do this whole blogging thing, which is weird because around the time I stopped was when my blog was getting the most views since, well, ever. Which reminds me of a hard truth told by one of the most succesful freelance writers out there: Emotional breakdown screws up your writing life.
‘What emotional breakdown?’ you might ask. Well, over the last several months a lot has been going on in my life.
When I first started this blog I had this list of things going on:
-trying to get into publications
-getting better at music
-saving up money to go to New Zealand
Until recently, my list looked more like this:
-wiggle in time to write anything
-think about getting into a publication
-think about blogging again
-what about music?
-what about New Zealand?
-teach a writing class to high school students
-make money with job/use money from said job to fund business/lose money/repeat
-struggle with low level depression
And then earlier this year I entered a relationship.
That went well.
And then it didn’t.
It turns out that the first step to following your dreams involves a lot of falling on your face.
Fortunately I’m a stubborn individual so, just as every other time I’ve fallen down, I’m getting back up.
