I wanted to update the site to keep it alive, even though I don’t have much to say at the moment.
I mentioned in my last post that I would relapse into wanting to be an author, and indeed I have. One look at the ‘normal’ jobs out there and I was right back to fantasies of big advances and my name along the spine of some thick, shiny hardcover. Whether these feelings are the thrashing spasms of a dying dream or a sign of something deeper and truer, I don’t know. I’m just riding the wave of emotion and seeing where I wash ashore.
I’m also still cycling through ideas one after another like a chain smoker, never sticking with one long enough to see it through. So on that score, nothing has changed.
I have some thoughts, some plans, some things I might want to say here soon, but I don’t want to say any of it now… mostly because I’ll want to say something different five minutes from now.
So, for now, that’s all.
Next time, or sometime soon, I really want to get back to writing posts that aren’t as much about me as they are about writing in general. I just haven’t felt confident enough in my writing or myself as a writer to run off at the mouth (or the fingertips) like some kind of expert. But because I think a lot about writing as both a wannabe writer and a reader, I’ll get back to that at some point. If anyone cares… 🙂
