I don’t even know why I’m doing this to myself, since I hate deadlines and writing under pressure, but I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and try my hand at this one-post-a-day drama for the entire month of November. And just look at me and my references to drama – I’m already feeling disgruntled about this whole thing. Not only that, it’s already eleven minutes to my first deadline. Clearly, the next twenty-nine days are going to be filled with much fist-shaking and gnashing of teeth. But I realized today how much I miss this lovely, clean space of mine, and what a waste it is to mentally compose weblog entries while brushing my teeth or driving to work but never post them, and how ridiculous it is that I now consider it perfectly normal to post every 1.5-2 months or so, when, years ago, I’d apologize for four days’ silence.
I remember Maria once mentioned making time for the things one enjoys doing, so here’s my attempt. To make it easy on myself, the length may vary (three sentences! two paragraphs!), and the accompanying photos we’ve all become so used to will actually be optional. The focus, it seems, will be on words and their regularity, not so much on subject matter. Quality may suffer, I foresee, but who knows, I may yet surprise myself. Stick around, though, please – we’ve got lots of catching up to do. You bring the gelato, I’ll provide the sunshine, and why don’t you tell me what you’ve been up to lately? I’m a bit out of the loop these days.
This is my November 1st placeholder post. Stay tuned, rockstars.
