I obviously haven’t written anything here in
awhile and I don’t even recall how long ago the last post was two years. (I checked: August 29, 2017. Fuck.) Given this fact it’s no surprise that this blog is thoroughly dead. It’s basically been neglected so long that it’s just a pile of bones in a field having long since actually rotting and decomposing. As my first blog it was always meant as a way to test the blogging waters so to say and Mission Accomplished! to that goal I guess. (I’m going to put that as the banner just for the hell of it.) After writing here I came up with a slightly more structured idea for a blog and you can find that over at EverythingSucks.blog (see, it even has it’s own domain name!). While that is also a patchwork of random shit, there is some slight underlying theme. Anyways…
Long story short I’ve been busting my ass the past year with flying. I already had a pilot’s license and wanted to “upgrade it” to a commercial pilot’s license (it doesn’t mean what you think it means either so settle down). Now that that’s over I’ve been very lost. It’s kinda like getting a degree at a college that you’ve busted your ass on for four years: you’ve finally achieved the goal and then you’re left asking yourself “now what?” It’s a really hollow sort of feeling.
Enter a slight mental crisis about a week ago and having a ton of extra and undirected energy. I’ve kinda turned back around to my old dream of actual writing. And not just saying that I’ll write but actually fucking writing something as I’m pretty talented at saying I’ll write something and then pissing years away actually doing nothing. I did the ebook publishing a few months ago so I got that under my belt and this helps motivation, if only slightly. While blogging has been
fun a thing I want to try writing fiction. Ya know, stories and shit. I already have quite a few Google docs filled up with ramblings and incoherent stories and all that is really needed is to make them not as rambly/incoherent. This is easier said than done.
Enter this useless and neglected blog. I don’t know where to actually post fiction writings! The other blog — Everything Sucks — isn’t a good candidate for this purpose and I never had success on Wattpad (need to write more fanfics I guess?). But since this site has been sitting around doing jack shit for the past two years — exactly two years — why not transform this dusty, rusty old website and repurpose it? I can post stories here and link them together to form “chapters” or whatever.
So that’s the plan going forward: turn this piece of shit into a fiction/short story/whatever-the-fuck-else-I-want-to-post blog.
