As anyone who visits here may have noticed, there hasn't been anything posted since May 1st, and even that was just an embedded video.
I have been having trouble feeling creative, whether it is just in blogging here or writing in general.
Writing itself is a whole issue, but, in regards to the blog at least, I think I was making this place too ... specific, I guess.
I started this blog back in October of 2008. Here is part of the very first post here:
(writing about previous blogs)
I wrote a few random things, nothing major, nothing regular. I always thought "why bother" and "what could I post that anyone would want to read?" But, reading a post today from a friend who hit her six-year blog-anniversary, I was shown a reason why I should blog: For myself.
She made a point of saying that she writes to get the stuff out of her head, and that resonated with me. So, I will post what I want, when I want and how I want. I won't ask anyone to read it or comment on it or care about it.
I will at least be getting some flotsam and jetsam out of my head. Maybe I can help my writing, find some ideas for stories, articles - whatever. But it will all be just for me.
Feel free to read, or not. Feel free to share, or not. Enjoy it, or not.
I am going to!
I obviously drifted away from that, a bit. I became sort of fixated on only posting things I was sure that would be of interest to others, especially things relating to horror films. I never intended for this to be a "horror movie only" site. Nor of any one particular subject, at all.
This was supposed to be randomness. Flotsam and jetsam. As it says above: "What I read, write, watch, listen to or do between hot cups of the good stuff."
Hopefully, I can get back on track and post the weird and wonderful.
Hopefully, I will enjoy it once again.
In turn, I hope you will enjoy visiting here.
