Well, I said that I would keep blogging and I failed. I haven’t posted on here in what seems to be decades. Boy, have some things changed. That’s life, right? Well… It sucks. It’s so hard to keep up with anything anymore. I can’t even keep track of what the date is.
Recently I’ve been reading these books written in diary format. They’re the diaries of real people and their lives. It sounds dumb, but I can’t stop reading them. Why is reading about someone else’s life so interesting to me? If I wanted to be philosophical about it, I would say that I read them because it takes me away from my life for a bit. It allows me to tune into someone else’s feelings instead of focusing on my own. It’s so easy to just get lost in the writing of someone else…just to experience what it would be like to live someone else’s life for a bit.
Well, enough of that. What I was getting around to saying is that those books have inspired me to take a new approach to blogging. Maybe if I blogged like it was a diary, I would write more. Just to write anything will help me develop tone and technique. I need to force myself to do this every day… or at least once a week. This is probably a bigger commitment than I think. I can do it!
Now that I’m done writing this incredibly long prologue to a seemingly pointless blog, I’m going to write something for real this time.
Wish me luck.
