So here I am. Three days before a very long weekend, scrambling to finish this website before then, praying that I've done something right by publishing it (doubtful), but glad that I finally have something, SOMETHING that can connect me to you all. Whether "you all" is my mom or a million strangers, I'm just happy to finally be here.
Now what is here?
Well, let me start off by saying that I hate blogging. I've tried so many times on so many different platforms that it's kind of like spitting in the wind for me. I start off fairly strong (my longest running blog is filled with TV show reviews and lasted almost two years), but then usually fizzle out before I make any traction (I had a book review site called "Painting the Roses Read" that lasted three weeks. I'm still a little in love with that title). I have all the excuses in the world: lack of motivation, poor time management, endless cycle of depression and sinus issues, but I'm throwing them all away.
As of right now, I have no excuses. To start off, I want to write a post here at least twice a week. I know that's slow in internet time, but I'm pretty sure I'm a 19th century recluse destined for consumption, so you can't expect a big hurry (see, my excuses are more creative now).
And that brings me to what this blog will be about.
I don't know. I mean, I'll probably focus on writing and the process of (eventually) creating something every single day and the process of (hopefully) getting my first novel published.
But since writing and, to another extant, theater are a huge part of my life, I don't want to hold back. You're going to see some great and probably not so great moments in my life. Throughout all of the blogs I've done, I've never given myself the chance to just be me, so that's what I want to do here.
Will it be perfect? Probably not.
Is this website perfect? Definitely not.
But I'm not going to stay stuck on the ledge hoping that I'll jump someday. I'm going to jump now.
Welcome to my first blog post and I hope you enjoy.
PS: Yes, I know the resolution on my header is terrible. I'll also be working on that soon.
