IT HAS BEEN WAY TOO LONG SINCE I’VE WRITTEN HERE.
In the past, a blog absence like this usually meant bad, bad things. Happily I can report this dry spell is a simple combination of intense writer’s block and this crazy thing called having a life with responsibilities (something I haven’t done in a very long time). In addition to school, I recently started working part time at a daycare center. It confirmed in me that I’m meant to be a teacher and made me more certain than ever that I am not meant to be teaching elementary school.
My Creative Writing class is also taking a toll on me. I’ll be honest, I wanted an easy class to ease back into school. As usual, when I think I have something figured out, I’m wrong. Not that it hasn’t helped my writing, but I feel as if all my creative energy goes into the class, and I’m drained afterwards. I’ve taken blow-off classes before (i.e. Interpersonal Relationships), and Creative Writing at community college isn’t one of them.
Sean King, “If you’re trying to take embarrassing pictures of me good luck because I’m very photogenic.”
I wish I could snap my fingers or take a pill and suddenly have all this creative energy. But I pulled off the bandaid and made a start. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
