This is a new beginning.
This is hard. For a long time I wrote without fear of repercussions, from my heart and my perspective and the desire to paint an accurate picture. This got me into a fair bit of trouble from the powers that be at my place of employment and now I’m … adrift. I will not talk about said place of employment in any detail, though I may find it difficult to not include it in the abstract. So there it is.
I’d like to begin with a statement of purpose, what I would like to pursue on this blog, and then take it from there. It’ll most likely morph into whatever it will be soon enough.
I’m a developing writer, so I will talk about stuff I’m working on, struggling with, and discovering. I’m a reader, so I will talk about books I’m reading and stuff I’m buying. I spend a lot of time in bookstores and coffeeshops, so I will talk about that. I’m a grad student, MFA in Creative Writing, so that will be referenced from time to time. I see a lot of movies, so I’ll talk about that.
I’m going to talk about my general experience. I will talk about people that I’m interested in and people who have hurt me. I will talk about things that frustrate me and things that bring me great joy.
I’m going to talk about my life.
Transitions are tough: moving to a new city, starting a new job, beginning a new project. This is a transition for me; I’m not making it by choice, but sometimes being pushed is what you need to begin fresh. Same life, brand new day.
