A long time ago, I wrote a lot. After that I didnâ€™t write much at all. Then, I tried to start up a new blog, and it was going to be focused on the writing I do â€œfor moneyâ€. Actual storytelling, not just â€œrandom shit from my brainâ€ blog posts.
And then life reminded me that I already have a full-time job and Iâ€™m busy and blah-blah-blah (insert other excuses here).
So I recently bought a snazzy new netbook with a full sized keyboard and a large enough screen that I can actually use the thing and see a full page in Word. I thought, â€œHey, if I have a way to sit on my lazy ass on the couch and write, Iâ€™d become mister super writer dude and get everything Iâ€™ve ever wanted to write written, and then Iâ€™d be awesome! And Stuff.â€
But the only way to make the purchase worthwhile is to actually use it, so Iâ€™m also gonna participate in NaNoWriMo again this year. I wonâ€™t be talking about this much here, athough I do hope that this new burst of creative inspiration will carry over here and drive me to post more and kick this place back up again.
You can follow along over at SerialStoryteller.com if youâ€™d like to see the stuff I write that is more â€œfor moneyâ€ and less â€œfor self-psychoanalysisâ€ and peek into the process as I plug away at the 50,000 word NaNoWriMo goal.
Either way, hereâ€™s to a more creative November!
