I have been effectively missing in action for a while now. I’m going to try to change that. It’s not that I haven’t been writing or photographing… I just got distracted from posting. But no more, I find myself with a great deal of idle time on my hands so I figure might as well be productive while standing around.
I have never done any true long form writing, until this past fall when I began a story that it seems won’t be finished for a long time. I’m 10,000 words in with no end in sight. Annoyingly I wrote most of that word count in the span of 3 days and haven’t written much since. That was months ago.
Everytime I sit down to write I struggle. The words flowed so easily those first few days, it was wonderfully effortless. Now I sit and try to force it and… Nothing.
I think part of it is work, I recently got a full time job (which is frustrating and boring as hell). Whenever I have time I try to fit in all the things I want to do, including writing, tv, gaming, friends and the list goes on. With all these things I want to do competing, I often end up either trying to multitask (which never really works) or I turn lazy and stay on the couch.
So I have decided. Time to write more, even if it’s not stories at least it’s something.
