I’ve had a heck of a time sitting down and just writing here on the blog these past couple of years.
That’s not to say that I have quit writing–far from it. Nor have I quit blogging. In fact, I’ve typically put out a minimum of one item a day for the past 5+ years. That is something that hasn’t changes, and I don’t see it changing any time soon.
It’s not that I’m sick of writing. I’m not. Maybe it’s the fact that I was in school from 2007-09 and am still somewhat burned out from all the papers I had to churn out for my degree. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m a lot happier at my new job than I was freelancing and therefore don’t feel the need to rehash these tired old topics I covered previously.
Or maybe… just maybe… it’s that I continue to evolve as a teacher/musician/blogger/podcaster, constantly shifting shape and finding new avenues of exploration.
I’m still extremely active online, but I’ve gotten more focused on the podcasting side of things, which I think it the most constructive thing I do on the net. I’m also busy as a teacher and organizing events in the area (more on that later!).
While it certainly seems that I’m less active as a creative writer than I was a few years ago, I have been feeling the writing bug lately, so we’ll see what results from that. Not being a student anymore certainly seems to be helping!
