Calendaring

I had originally intended to have this posted for yesterday, but it actually plays to the message that I’m writing you that it won’t actually be posted until it’s done.

When the year started, I had given myself a ton of expectations. I felt like goals were too easy to give up on, but if I expected myself to do particular things, then I would be much more likely to follow through. So I wrote down a full list of things that I had expected to do in 2016.

Tagline

I love how the tagline on this blog says “I love writing”, but I have nothing written. That’s not to say that I don’t like to write, I’ve just been oh so very  tired. A lot of my more recent work has been reviewing and opinions. I’ve done some free form poetry, but no substantial stories have flowed from these fingers in a while.

That sounds so discouraging from someone looking for a blogging job, but I’ve never quite been one to lie about things. I love writing, and I especially love storytelling, but sometimes writing fact is good practice for writing fiction.

This has been an interesting first post.
