Sunday

I’ve always wanted to write, and I’ve always found an excuse not to write. I don’t know how to start. They wouldn’t understand what I’m trying to say. I’m no better than the next guy.

I was listening to an established author on Periscope the other day and he mentioned the first page is always the hardest to write. All the pressure lies on that one page. What a parallel to everything else in life, right? You put too much pressure on anything and it becomes paralyzed.

Take a deep breath. Begin.

Seasons

Phew. September was difficult. After a summer of flying high, late August and September were the months that grounded me. Feeling thrown back into something I sprinted from left me bitter and searching for focus and gratitude. I welcome this month with arms fully extended, blissful at the thought of leaving the rest behind.

October, you son of a bitch, where you been hiding? 

In an effort to hold myself to writing more freely and more often, I’ll be including my “currents” at the end of my posts:
