Hello friends! So, I realize I went completely AWOL. I also realize I wrote in one of my last posts that I would catch up to my one-post-a-day entries. Something tells me that I won’t be able to catch up at this point.
So here’s the deal: I think I’m going to try to write one piece each day again.
I’m not going to start from day one, but I’m not going to force myself to try to catch up. That’s not very fair for me, and that’s not fair to my Facebook friends, who would eventually get sick and tired of seeing me all over their newsfeed. But I do want to get back into the habit of writing again, and I want to finish this damn challenge that I gave myself.
So even though I began this challenge on June 1, 2017, I will not be finishing on June 1, 2018. (BIG SHOCK)
I can’t promise that I will definitely have something done every single day, but I will try my hardest. I personally believe that my life is looking up, so I want to share news and updates and everything going on, positive and negative (and even the boring stuff, too, maybe). I have a bunch of things to be proud of, and events I’m looking forward to. I want to document it, even though I haven’t been lately.
Just to clarify, I haven’t been hiding away on purpose, or crawling back into The Dark Place; I’ve actually been doing okay. I’m proud of myself for not letting myself fall into that place I was so stuck in.
I believe that I am meant to use this year to grow and move on, to make my life more meaningful and positive and lively. I want to cleanse my life from feelings and people who make me feel crappy about myself and negative about the world, and truly appreciate the things and people who make it worth while, who don’t make me want to rip my hair out of my head.
So I shall try my best to turn back to writing. I already have a couple poems to share, since I’ve been really into those lately.
And I’ve come to the conclusion that I really want to get a book published. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a novel, or a compilation of poems and short stories and advice, but it’s going to be something. I want to have something physical to be proud of (even if it isn’t my body right now, which I haven’t been working on the way I originally wanted to).
Please be patient with me.
I can’t promise you anything right now, but I hope to have something to show for all my progress.
Thank you always.
