I’m just going to jump in and start writing—
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking: how to get back into my writing, for it’s been a really long time. It’s not that I haven’t written in a really long time, it’s that I’m not actively writing and I’m not pulled to it to the point that I immerse myself in it. I’m not as excited, I’m not watching films, I’m not searching out language and reveling at its ring. I’m not immersed in writing, in language, in exploring ideas, and that bothers me. I want to have a space to do that.
I’ve been looking at particular blog that has me wanting to throw myself into the process: http://luizachelaru.tumblr.com/. She’s a photographer, a real talent, and completely excited about what she does. The last part is what I admire most of all. Sustaining that energy is so difficult for me.
When I’m doing what I love, I love it, so why don’t I make time for it? I think I’m far too over committed. English major+upper level biology and psychology and french and music, literary magazine editor, radio show dj and researcher, chamber music performer, violinist, information services consultant, etc. etc. And I want to be a writer? Where’s the time?
