Whoa. I stopped writing for a minute. I won’t apologize because I think I was in a place where, for a weird span of time, I needed a break from it. To be honest, I kind of hated it for a while. The truth is, writing, in any and all forms, has always been extremely cathartic for me. It is the one thing that is my sure thing; the thing I know will never fail me and the talent I will forever possess, and the one thing in my life that refuses to abandon me, no matter how much I want to leave it behind.
But for that weird span of time, it reminded me of much simpler times. Times where I was proud of the work I submitted, proud of the people around me, and proud of myself. The reminder of this was painful, too painful to accept, so in an effort to not have to accept that pain, I abandoned this blog. For the last year and a half, I have started and restarted, logged out and declined offers for any sort of submission or writing opportunity.
Then, tonight, at 1:18AM, I fell in love again. So, I am back. Seriously this time. And I can’t wait to keep growing.
