No More Avoidance Tactics

Enough is enough. I haven't written anything in over six months and even though I seriously miss it, all I've been doing is coming up with excuses not to sit down and make myself do it.

For a while I was telling myself it was because my life was mainly a lot of things I didn't want to share with the world. There were hatches, matches and dispatches, celebrated and mourned in private with family and close friends. So there is a certain amount of truth to this, but I know those we're missing would hate the thought they were an excuse for not doing something.

But I do miss it. I miss the process of trying to arrange my thoughts and ideas in a way that make sense and make people laugh. I miss being horrified with how a sentence came out and binning the whole thing, starting again trying to craft a story that truly reflected my experience.

Mostly I miss the accountability, people responding to my writing and telling me their thoughts. I miss engaging with people about the things I care most about. And I miss people telling me they enjoyed reading my blog.

So it's back. Even more radical and with very few holds barred. First up, Sparrer and Riot Fest. Watch this space.
