I have created another blog to give updates on my writing efforts. You can find it here.

A renewal of purpose; a statement of intent

It's been a long time since I blogged here. One entry in April 2010 is all that I've published since October 2009. Here's how long it's really been: when last I published any real news we were moving from Sandy Springs to Dawsonville. Now we've been in Cumming for almost two years. That's a long time.

My on-line life has been pretty much exclusively lived on Facebook for the last three years. I stopped blogging a couple of years ago because...um...because...well, I don't really know why I stopped. I guess I just stopped taking the time to sit down and write things out.

My personal and family news gets shared on Facebook these days, but that's not really what I ever used this blog for anyway. The blog was more for telling stories, reliving memories, and getting things off my chest. I want to get back into that habit. I want to start blogging again. I want to do it as much for the chance to flex my writing muscles as anything else. About all that I've written in the last couple of years is fiction. I haven't done much epistolary writing and I really want to get back into that. I like this format and I want to do more of it. It's nice having a place to vent and just get random thoughts down on the page. Screen. Whatever.

I'm going to try to blog at least once a week. No idea what it'll be about. I'm sure the focus of the blog will change from post to post just as it always has. I'll write about whatever is in my head at the time. It might be a crazy story from high school or a rant about fantasy football or some other thing jammed in my head that is too long and clunky for a Facebook status.

Hopefully I can stick with this. I'm famous for setting writing goals that somehow never get met. I'll do my best to meet this one. Keep coming back to see how I do and, as you always have, support your local blogger.
