Sticking to blogs is not my forte.
I have a tendency to overthink and overplan, so most of my previous blogs essentially ended before they could really begin, drowned in an unused pile of planned categories and post ideas. It’s been a couple of years since my last attempt, and I’d like to think that maybe I’ve changed and can give this another go while hopefully sticking to it for more than a month or so.
This time, I’m embarking with no plan beyond a couple of ideas that I could write. I don’t know that the blog will be a place for me to post fully-formed stories — I think I’ll try to leave that to my portfolio — but maybe I’ll scrape together a scene or two to throw into the mix of opinions, anecdotes, and observations.
Maybe if I’m clever, I can leave the tags and categories vague enough so that the average reader can’t tell if I’m talking about my own experiences, a fictional scene, or a fictionalized version of my experiences.
But I shouldn’t get ahead of myself. My ability to capture and convey emotion whenever I’m writing about my personal experiences is vastly inferior compared to my fiction.
So maybe writing about this not-plan wasn’t the best way to start things off.
