I haven’t written anything in over a year. I haven’t written anything that I wanted to write in over two years. The reason for that is college. I decided to get a degree in creative writing (it would be my second degree). It was a three year course, and my sanity barely held itself together through the first year. I had to write things I never though about writing, in ways I have never written. It sucked the joy out of it. Looking back, most of what I wrote came from a bad place. I had always been good at writing when I was hurt. So, I should be gratetful that I haven’t written in a while, but that isn’t the case. Writing was fun for me. It was something I enjoyed.
That’s why I’ve decided to start writing again. I want to find enjoyment in writing again. This time it’s going to be through an email newsletter. It won’t be periodical, there won’t be a fixed length, topics will be random, and I’ll try to share things that I think are worthy of being shared. Also, because it’s an email, you’ll be able to reply to me directly (rather than the traditional leaving a public comment, which I know some people don’t always like to do. I’m still considering keeping my wordpress as an archive for those new posts, but I might not.
So please, feel free to sign up and pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested.
Thank you for still reading.
