What the Hell Am Doing

I’ve been “wanting to write more” for about 15 years now. For what feels like the first time in my life I feel like I can do something about that want. Throughout the years I’ve randomly posted on Blogger and I’ve enjoyed it, but I always wound up wandering away from whatever “thing” I had going on in my posts.

I’d like to think it’s different this time.

Through a series of events my life’s taken a strange turn towards the positive, and I’m hoping to use that with writing to maybe keep heading that direction.

Writing for me has been one of the few things that I enjoy through the whole process. I’ve been writing for a long time, but I never realized how much I liked it until about five years ago. Since then I’ve randomly trying to cram it in to my life whenever I have the chance.

With my desire to get back in to writing, and with NaNoWriMo fast approaching I felt the pull. I’ve been lurking in Reddit’s multiple writing related channels reading (a slow process), and one thing I keep reading is “Write every day, write garbage, write art, just write something”. So this is me, trying to use Medium to get me writing every day.

My hope is that I keep it up this time. Feed this good shift, affect some positive change in my life. So some of this is therapy for me. Some if this will probably be a journal. Hopefully some of it will be good.

I’m working on my first big post. Kind of an epilogue. That would probably make this the forward.

P.S. I don’t think I’m going to edit this outside of making the red lines disappear (there’s one now…) While this is more free-flow than others, it might be interesting to my brain try to stream a concept in real time…
