So I Don’t Forget

28 Dec

Welcome? Not really, because I doubt that many eyes will visit this little nook within the web world. Anyway, that’s not entirely a concern–I’m doing this as a form of self-discipline. You see, I’m a “writer.” (Get used to the quotes.) But I hardly write anymore. Therefore, in an effort to somehow keep at it, this is a little exercise to keep what’s left of my creative brain–largely burned to a crisp after years of technical writing and utter boredom–going. So I Don’t Forget: forget my love of words, of prose, of putting it all together.

Promises I’m going to hopefully keep:

1) Write something every day.

2) Don’t be frustrated when what you produce isn’t worthy of an A+ sticker, much less a Pulitzer or The New Yorker (applicable for times when I feel like sharing my work).

3) Yeah, about Promise #2: be realistic. You’re not going to win a Pulitzer next month. The chances that you’ll make it to the New Yorker are, well, currently slim. (One day, one day…) Right now, re-develop your love for writing; work on the craft, then think about those other things.

4) Seriously, Girley, write EVERY DAY.

And so, I’m going to express myself in the ways I know how (journaling, thinking aloud, getting my thoughts out there) and in a few other ways (mild ranting and raving, presenting my work every once in a while). Let’s hope this thing works.
