Renewing my Writing Vows

My grandfather told me when I was ten years old that I was a talented writer. He's hands-down the most intelligent person I've known and someone I always strove to make proud, so I took his suggestion to heart. It's what fueled me to pursue a degree in journalism and begin a career as a writer and editor. 

This past May marked seven years since my college graduation date (holy shit that sounds like a long time!!), and since then, I've enjoyed less than 15 months of profesionnal work as a writer or editor. 

It's been easy to blame the economy, the failing journalism market, and tell myself that maybe I lack the talent to be a profitable writer.  

But here's the thing...I do have the physical, mental, and emotional capacity to write. And thanks to technology, I have this nifty little blog to publish my thoughts on the interwebs. So that fact that my last post was in November is pretty freaking ridiculous. 

I know myself well enough that I know I feel broken and incomplete when I'm not writing. And damnit, for it to be close to a year without me producing any creative content is just plain ridiculous. 

It's hard to know exactly where to begin and what the hell to write about. A lot of crazy ish has happened and sometimes I just feel the need to work vomit everything out, but then what should be a short post turns into five pages of incoherent rambling. 

I'm pretty the next string of posts won't be chronological, and it will probably take me a while to find my voice again. But for the sake of my sanity and the creative portion of my soul, I know that I need to start blogging regularly again. So hello again, blogging's good to be back!
