Writing is Hard

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I've been struggling to write. Not just on this blog (which has made me eight cents since I began blogging), but in letters, stories, and journals.

I hate this stupid mental block.

But, I am trying. Every sentence is progress.

It's getting there.

slowly.

26

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I turn 26 soon.
Very soon.

I'm not sure how I feel.

I can see wrinkles forming on my face.

I don't get carded when purchasing alcohol.

I am officially a grown-ass woman.

Weird.

NaNoWriMo

Hello Non-Existent Reader, 

I've already technically failed NANoWriMo. Instead of writing, I cleaned my apartment (late at night), took a hella-long nap and dreamed about granola, and shopped. 

Maybe I'll attempt to blog more than once a month.

Passive

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

I used to write almost everyday, even if it was just a page, or a scene, or a sample of dialogue. Now, I struggle to write more than three lines. My letters are boring, my day remains unjournaled, and pages unwritten. It's the curse of writer's block, or fatigue, and laziness.

I will live an active life again. No more of this passive nonsense.

I will write, and be published. I promise you, dear reader.

And I always keep my promises.

Progress.

Hello Non-Existent Reader, 

It's just the non-existent writer here. I've been working full-time (yay!), in school (sigh), and busy in general. 

I haven't written much in my journal or in my ongoing story. 

But I'm slowly getting back to it. I took a ten month break from writing stories when I waited tables and lived at home. I didn't blog because it would have been daily updates of "My Life is Not Where I Want It To Be and No Matter How Much I Try, Nothing Is Changing."

I even stopped writing letters for a period of time. 

Luckily, I've started writing letters again. I'm slowly getting back into the habit of writing. I am trying not to watch too much Netflix. 

I am sort of exercising again (I do crunches when I watch tv). My diet has slightly improved. 

My sense of direction, thanks to the Phoenix Grid System, has drastically improved. It's just a matter of undoing 20+ years of winding, crazy Tidewater road system. 

I'm a constant work in progress.

Well

Hello Non-Existent Reader!

I've been so busy.

But good busy.

New job, back to school, adventure.

I'll write soon, I promise.

I know, it's what they all say.

And the page remains blank.

But me, I keep my promises.

I'll continue to write.

Trust me.

I have lots to say.

The Adventure.

Hello Non-Existent Reader,

Remember when this happened?

Yup


Well, I did it. 

I went out west for an interview. Drove on the desert (because the GPS told me to). 

Always get an Exit Row.

One week later (on a Wednesday), I received a phone call offering me a job. 

That Friday, with my mother, I set out on a 2300 mile adventure. I brought the essentials with me:
  • All my clothing 
  • Shoes
  • A full set of 34-year-old cutlery
  • Baking Sheet
  • Spatula
  • Can opener
We saw many things on our very long drive, including: 

  • Graceland (Memphis, Tennessee)
  • The Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial (Oklahoma City, OK) 
It was a very powerful memorial.

  • Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo, TX) 
  • The Petrified Forest (Northeastern AZ) 
  • Sedona (Sedona, AZ)
My mother. In the vortex. Good Vibes.
It's another chapter in my crazy life.
