It’s been a while.
The other day I read some fanfiction that I wrote back in 2006 and okay, here is the thing. It wasn’t that bad. It certainly wasn’t great, or even good. But I had a few well-written turns of phrase and actually something that resembled a plot. And more than that, people actually enjoyed reading it? It just got me back into a writing mood again.
It really has been a while. But lately I feel like something is waking up inside me (okay, let’s rephrase that without being too dramatic). But honestly though, I’ve been feeling borderline manic, like I have this creative energy within me that needs to be expressed in some way (okay, scratch what I what I said about not being too dramatic). But damn, it’s true. I’m feeling a strong urge to write, even if it’s nonsense like this.
Over the years, I’ve been trying to figure out what this blog is about – if you’ve been here since 2014, you’d know that I tried it all – expat blogging, book blogging, food blogging, travel blogging — trying to curate a life that is somehow worthy of instagram or you know, the like. But the more I write about those things, the less sincere my writing feels. So here I am not, trying to just.. write. Keep the muscle exercised (but wait, you’ve seen me try the same thing before, but I tell you what, this time is different… I think).
I’m not sure yet where I am going with all of this. And I’m sorry if the few people who read this just got a million updates. I didn’t really realize that importing a theme would spam all my subscribers. So I guess what I’m trying to say is… don’t unsubscribe? Better things are coming. I promise.
