I want to hear from you!

Hello, dearest readers.

It’s a lovely day here in Arizona. 70 degrees F. Partly cloudy. I have a job interview in a few hours and I’m nervous. I’m really nervous.

 

I started browsing the YouTube because, well, it’s the YouTube. It’s the ultimate distraction. I came across a video from one of my favorite YouTubers and he talked about being honest.  I don’t want to overshare, but I definitely want to be honest with you all. So here it goes.

 

I’m still learning how to create content for blogs (obviously). I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m just… doing. I’m always afraid that I will lose touch with the reasons why I even have a blog and start posting tons of crap that has nothing to do with anything, and… well, sort of like this post.

 

I get a decent amount of views and such on here and I know I’ve got more followers than I thought I’d ever earn. It’s humbling and heartwarming. Thank you all so much for your support. It really does mean a lot to me.

 

I would really like to hear from you guys. You know, the typical questions. Why did you follow me? What do you want to see from me? All that jazz. But more than that…

 

Who are you? What do you do for fun? Do you go adventuring? Do you like to read? How many licks does it take you to get to the center of a tootsiepop? What’s your favorite color? What do you do to make yourself or others happy? How many siblings do you have? Tell me a story about you and your best friends. Do you like Disney movies? Do you know how to cook? Share with me. I truly want to know. You guys have a story to be told and I definitely want to listen.

 

If you have a blog of your own, post it below and I’ll go check it out. I’d love to hear what you all have to say.

 

Thanks again for reading and for being you. You’re amazing and I mean.

 

Remember guys and gals, if you’re going to dream, dream BIG! And never stop believing!

On Writing: Multiple Stories

Wielding the attention span of a chicken, I sat down and looked through my files. Lo and behold, I have come up with a thousand stories. I couldn’t honestly tell you the exact number due to the amount of lost data, hidden data, and so on. All I can say is that I am almost certain I have at least come up with nearly a hundred individual stories (even if some of them ended up fusing together or inspiring one another). Over the years, I’ve honed my interests. Eventually, I will hone my craft.

Writing is hard, but focusing is harder. When I have an idea, I feel compelled to write it down before I forget it. Unfortunately, once I start writing it down, I can’t stop until I get the next idea. It’s very disconcerting.

I’m focusing, now. Attempting to align my stories in a way where (should I be absolutely unable to move forward in one), I can hop over to another and meet a certain goal. Five thousand words, a chapter, or some other goal or deadline is placed when I begin and I am not allowed to transfer from one place to another without meeting that goal. It’s exciting. But it’s late. We’ll update this later. Goodnight, my loves.
