So remember back in the beginning of November when I wrote that post saying I was back, and excited to start blogging again? Yeah, about that…
I know, I know. I literally did nothing that I said I was going to do. And I don’t even have an “in my defense” section this time, because my Indians are in the off season, we won’t even discuss the Cleveland Browns, the holidays are over, and nothing has been stolen.
Well, unless you count my self respect…
Anyway, I’m not going to make any promises this time around either. But I do want to share with you what I hope will start coming of this blog in the near future:
- I really, really, really want to share with y’all some of the amazing books I’ve been reading. Seriously, I’ve binge-read several series over the last couple of months, like Daughter of Smoke & Bone and The Naturals, and I’m currently tearing through The 100 series by Kass Morgan (which could, and hopefully will, be a blog post all its own.) It’s not that I’ve stopped reading while I’ve been away. I’ve just stopped writing.
- I want to know why I’m suddenly so uninspired to write. I went to school for journalism. I used to love doing nothing but sitting down and writing about whatever the hell I wanted. I used to love sharing ideas with people, whether they disagreed with me or not. Now…now, I just kind of loathe trying to form words. Who knows the reasons why, but what used to come so natural to me feels forced and fake and blah. I want to fix that. I really, really do.
- Which leads me to my next thought. I would love to get some feedback on what kinds of posts y’all want to read. Give me writing prompts, list ideas, topics of discussion. I’m literally open to anything and everything. If it gets me involved and sharing with others, and maybe brings my spark back a little, I’m all for it. Even book recommendations would be awesome, because a TBR pile can never be too big.
Honestly, guys, I’m going to do my best. Because I miss this. I truly do. Sometimes, I just lack the self-confidence and gumption to make Book Twister everything I wanted, and still want it, to be when I first started writing. But who knows. The future is an unknowable concept, so…
See you when I see you.
