Clearly, I haven’t been writing enough lately — I got a “just checking in” call on Tuesday night. So, I thought I’d better write a quick post explaining why I’ve disappeared lately.
The biggest reason is that my job has been going through some changes — good ones, but also ones that require that I get to work earlier and spend most of my day working with hair-on-fire intensity. The change in schedule cuts down on my time to write in the morning, both because I’m a little less awake and because the trains are just more crowded, which means it’s harder to sit down and do my usual thumb-typing. And the intensity means that by the time I get home, I’m tired and not especially interested in spending more time in front of the computer.
The other factor is that my non-work life has not been terribly exciting lately, or at least nothing is going on that lends itself to storytelling. I can’t really blame my dull-ass life for a lack of writing, given that I’ve spent a year and a half blogging about it and it’s not as if my life is newly unexciting. Sometimes, though, boring things happen in a way that can be recounted interestingly (which has been the saving grace of this whole blog endeavor) but now is not one of those times.
Anyway… that’s my story. I’m sure I’ll get my mojo back soon. In the meantime, talk among yourselves.
