Now, with all of the inspirational talk out of the way, this is still technically a Monthly Note for December, so I will go into a quick rundown of what’s to be expected in the upcoming weeks.
First, I want to address the elephant in the room: the lack of content for the second half of the month. Short answer: it was intentional. Long answer: I didn’t want my hectic holiday work schedule to affect my writing time and process, so I temporarily halted all writing for the month. This allowed me to have a better understanding of my thoughts and ideas that I wanted to focus on, and to sort out which ones I had a more solid base to write about. I know you guys and the website suffered because of it, and I apologize. But trust me, starting the first full week of January, it will all come back to a normal posting schedule.
Second point: current projects. I’m still trying to figure that out. I have a couple of ideas brewing around in my head, but I’m still trying to work out the kinks. One of the ideas is actually doing an updated version of the long story I wrote for my four years in high school. I never talked about it on here before, but it was literally my longest story ever, and it was what got me into writing. So, I think it’s been more than enough time for me to share it. I may share the original format online, but that’s a talk for another day.
Final point: you lovely bastards. I cannot express just how much I thank you guys for sticking around during my dead times and still showing up when I got new stuff up. Even though I have roughly 150 following the website, it actually means a lot to me that many of you keep coming back and commenting on things you like. It helps me figure out where I want to take this writing career in the future. Doing this has actually helped me out in multiple ways aside from potentially helping me get a career. I managed to meet amazing people by doing this who all have been in the writing industry for a number of year, so I now have people to turn to for knowledge. All of this writing has been helping me apply for jobs and internships, something I didn’t think would be able to help with my daily life. And, on top of that, doing this for so long helped me remember the main reason why I even started writing in the first place: it’s fun to do. My mindset has changed so much about writing and the different way people can change from it. There was actually a thought I had some time ago that I want to share with you.
“Creativity is the ability to put your own presence in any form of writing, literature, or sentence structure.”
I know you guys are going to crucify me for putting that, but it was something that came to me one day. And I like it.
2019 has came in like a tsunami bent on destroying the coast line of a beach town. We all felt its impact, but bulked up and managed to survive through it. For 2020, we rebuild and make yourselves stronger.
I hope you all have an amazing New Year’s Eve, and begin the new year with your best foot forward!~
