I’m a writer!
Look, it’s a website with no new posts in over a year!
The year is almost out and I guess the decade is as well. That’s weird. The second half of this year has gone so fucking fast, I can’t believe it. So say we all!
It’s been quite the year, it began in that strange place of planning a wedding (I wrote the ceremony and I have always meant to post it. Maybe I will!) that we both secretly were worried would never work out. It did work out despite the bumps and bruises of trying to make anything work. I think everyone has stories of the day they tried to host or launch anything.
I think one thing I’ll remember 2019 for is it’s the year I really clicked with my writing. After trying so many other people’s ideas on, I think I found at least the beginnings of my way. I started the year trying to decide, rather trying to get someone to tell me it was okay to abandon a project, the person that told me to was me. I can’t quite describe how great it was to kick that thing aside like a bag of garbage.
I read a few books that really inspired me and in turn used that inspiration in a few different stories that I’m all really proud of. One is out on submission– maybe it’ll find a home, maybe it won’t. Nothing quite makes me feel like a writer like collecting rejections.
Most of the year, I’ve felt like I’m on the cusp of something and I think the conclusion of that might live inside 2020.
