Well, the day after I created the new blog, I woke up thinking it was a stupid idea. But I decided to fight my natural urge to give up and write another post. Now I have two followers! One of them is my friend Marci, but I must continue writing for my public! (…)
Anyway, I’m doing it. I’m pursuing my dream of writing. Maybe this will be the book I beg and plead to get published. Or maybe I’ll get inspired to write a different kind of book. But snarky is what I’m best at. So I think I’ll stick to it.
As for Bell Jar? Well, I’m just going to have to start doing some more of that stuff I said I wanted to do. Won’t I?
I want to:
Compile something like a book and beg publishers to read it.
Participate in that November novel-writing thing this year.
Learn those songs in my saxophone solo book.
Take truly breathtaking photos.
Learn to use ISO settings. And shutter speed. And light effects. Basically, take the whole camera off automatic.
Learn violin. At least, get ok at it.
Most of all, I want to not give up on all the dreams I had because I pursued one that stresses me out. I love my job most days, don’t get me wrong. But I wonder all the time if I would have been happier elsewhere.
