Hello, my abandoned LJ and anyone who still has me on their friends list.
I've posted here only once since Travis and I split, more than a year ago. My whole life kind of went dark for awhile then, and I never got back to the habit of writing. I kept aiming too high when I tried again, with trying to start new blogs and do Serious Writing, as if I could make anything coherent and useful come out of my pen/keyboard on a regular basis without also venting all the randomness in my head first.
I still want to do Serious Writing, or at least writing for an audience bigger than just myself, but first I have to get back to a place where I am used to venting my thoughts on the page. It is always hard to write things that I have 'high' hopes for, like people beyond my inner circle reading it, or publication, or even just producing a finished 'piece' if only for myself/practice. But it does get easier when my brain is decluttered on a regular basis. If I am used to words flowing for at least awhile every day, then I can more easily trick my brain into putting in effort to try and write something 'good', whatever that means.
I'll be aiming to write daily, but some of it will be private and the vast majority of it will at least be LJ-friends-only. If you're seeing this then I'd probably be glad to friend you on LJ and let you read, but I warn you that this is mostly a space for me to think out loud, and not always on things of any interest to other people.
Looking forward to being back, though as always upon return, a little scared of what I may find inside my head.
