Happy New Year!
When I started this blog four months and a bit ago, I gave myself the challenge, the goal to write every weekday until the end of the year.
You see, I’m a three-month person in most things – relationships, jobs, diets, life remodels, liking myself – all tend to last me three months. I blame it on the cycle of a show- auditions, rehearsals and performances usually run about three months.
Yes, it’s true I’ve been married for more than three months but Husband knows the good times and the bad times usually cycle in three-month increments.
Hence the end of the year/four months and a bit goal.
I am happy to say that I made it! Phew!
And I am even happier to say it has been a fantastic thing for me. No, I’m not writing other things – or rather, I’m not finishing the writing on other things - but I am healthier in my head. And I am enjoying the routine of getting up with the sun and putting my crazy down on paper – as it were. And so what if my grammar has gotten worse because not awake enough and I’m constantly second-guessing my comma placement? The way I figure it, (Mom, Brother), if it bothered you so much, you’d call and tell me where I should stick it -
So, what happens next?
Who knows? I’ve not given myself a goal other than to keep writing. It may not be daily and it may not be all on this site but that’s okay. I mean I might actually finish my play/book/poetry… Regardless, I’ve still got stories to tell, I'm still married to Husband and his very honest way of speaking, we're still remodeling the freaking house, AND I still do and say really stupid things every single day. Having a place to put them - any place other than running about my head at 3am in the morning - is a good thing. For me.
And today, on this first day of a New Year, ‘me’ is what matters. I'll get back to 'you' tomorrow. (wink)
My name is ej. I'm a girl. I say that because with the short hair and the short initials, folks aren't always sure. More brilliant insights to who I am in About me
