Do people even read blogs anymore? I’m pretty sure the answer is no, and I’ve been neglecting this blog for the last 3+ years, so the real question is: do people even read *this* blog anymore?
I guess the answer really doesn’t matter, since when I converted this blog from photography to the place I processed my emotions after the divorce, it was never written for anyone but myself. And as I dust this old friend/therapist off, I find myself rusty, the words clogged inside me, trying to find a path to flow from through my fingertips.
Writing and I were on a break. Well, we weren’t on a break per se, I was still writing daily, but I was writing as a profession. Therefore, the writing was no longer for me. It was for an audience. This July, I went into the corporate world, stopped writing altogether and now, it’s time to pick up the pen and put it to paper (figuratively, that is. Who writes with pen and paper anymore??!)
I’m starting 2017 with a goal to write daily. My words may show up here, they may not. I just know that I feel the need…the need for speed (wait, that’s not it)…I feel the need to create. I’m not sure what I want to create yet, how I want to create it, and with what medium with which I will create. This time, I don’t have a photography business to promote, a divorce to process through or ridiculous online dating adventures to regale. I don’t have a focus and the only goal is to make something and allow my creativity freedom to, well, create.
So let creativity abound, wherever it shall take me.
P.S. I’m reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic, in which she talks about and celebrates the creative process. It’s a wonderful read for all creatives.
