This Is One of those Update Posts.

I haven’t published a post here in about four months. That was not my intention. I was going to take a week or so off so I could start my new day job.

A week or so.

In my defense, not that I really need to defend myself, I also added a part time job at the same time and I had my freelance work and I have a house to run and a family to take care of and then I started kickboxing. Anyway, writing here fell to the wayside.

As I type this, I’m sitting in my friends’ kitchen in California. We’re here for Long Beach Comic Con. Yeah write will be hosting a booth there with a microstory contest and I’ll be speaking on a panel about the future of digital storytelling. The fact that I’m speaking at a comic convention and that I’m running around as a writer feels all sorts of weird but in a good way.

That is until I got to thinking that if I’m telling people I’m a writer and I have a blog, I probably should put something on it. I’ve sat in front of this screen more times than I can count but nothing comes out. My head is filled with 5,000 other things, most of which aren’t interesting to other people.

Hell, they aren’t even interesting to me. For example: I keep reminding myself that I must not forget to stop at Target to pick up the Simply Balanced Fruit Strips that I put in my kid’s lunch because we’re almost out and the regular grocery store doesn’t have anything that’s not filled with sugar. And why am I not buying these in bulk online? I don’t even know why I don’t buy everything online so I never need to go to a store. I fall down a rabbit hole of errand reminders and ways to improve my life that I don’t have time to implement.

At this point I am so busy and my head is so filled with details that I no longer know whether to shit or wind my watch (best phrase ever). Once LBCC is over, I should have a few free minutes per day to focus on writing more. A few minutes should be enough, right?

If you’re new here, hi, and I promise to write something better than this soon. If you’re old here, hi, and thanks for sticking with me. Good stuff will be happening here soon.

Life is good and interesting and there are opportunities and ideas popping up all around me. Trying to get my head together to act on them is another matter. Soon, though. Soon.
