writin' and whatnot

Where I've been

So...I know I haven't really been on this thing in a while. It's been over a month, actually. And for anyone who cares...I apologize. I apologize to you, and to myself. I started this blog as a way for me to be loose, and write freely about whatever might be on my mind — therapy, if you will. But lately, my dreams have been eating up every minute of my time and every ounce of my energy. I've wanted to be a writer for most of my life. And now that my dreams are coming true, I have no regrets, but I recognize now more than ever the amount of sacrifice it takes to do it. At least...to be a writer for a living. But with being a writer, and having work to create (though it is my own work, and what I WANT to do) comes the challenge of putting a certain level of pressure on myself to produce literature at the highest level. I believe in excellence. But excellence can only be achieved through focus. And focus can only come through prioritizing. And for the last month, while I was editing this book, blogging wasn't a priority. Well, actually it was, but my brain didn't think so.

Nonetheless, I have so much to share, and am slowly climbing out of my hole (missed my father's birthday and everything) to reconnect with the world, as I continue on this journey in search of success, but more importantly, balance.

Bear with me. And...keep checking this damn blog.
