I’ve been away for a while and during that time I’ve realized a few things.
1. I love to write but get distracted by the world too easily
2. The world is loud and I focus too much on what others are doing.
3. I may have written and submitted more in 2021 than any previous year, but this is not that year anymore and I have to improve my writing by doing more of it, taking more classes, and devoting more time to it than anything else.
These 3 things are the crux of my intentions for the coming year. Yes I am on social media, but I spend too much time on there and will be taking intermittent breaks for my writing as well as for my mental health.
My focus should be on what I’m attempting, not what others have done or said and I have trouble with that constantly.
I love the friends I’ve made on social media and they’ve helped me grow as a writer more than anything else aside from the actual writing.
We move through the world thinking of where we want to be but forget about the difficulties of doing those things.
So as the year starts, I speak of what things may come of this.
Good writing is my goal and I hope you’ll follow along.
