I’ve been a little distant on the interwebs lately. Unfortunately, the real world smothered me and any post I attempted to write was so dull or nonsensical that I thought it best to lay low rather than announce my insanity. However, during my absence I’ve learned a few things that I wanted to share:
- If I don’t have time to daydream, then I don’t have time to think clearly. My constant daydreaming is a necessary part of my scattered brain figuring itself out. Without it I don’t actually make a lot of sense, in real life or in my imaginary worlds.
- Sometimes the ‘writers’ that brag the loudest are actually just insecure and terrified.
- There is no possible way to write a good writer’s bio without sounding like a bit of a douche. (Trust me, I asked my friends on Facebook and they agreed so it has to be true.)
- Every time I get good news about my writing, I blab it to my friends and then spend the rest of the day re-reading the email or the phone conversation notes I took, hoping that it’s not some cruel trick of my imagination.
- Glee is the best television show in the world. I did dancing and acting classes as a kid and I’m telling you if I could sing, I’d give up writing in a heartbeat. There is something about musicals that make me feel completely alive.
- Having said that, I actually feel angry and stressed when I’m not writing. I’m not saying I don’t get those feelings at certain stages in my projects but they’re much, much worse when I’m not telling stories.
I’ll let you know when I get my groove back…
