Well here is something different…
It has been a while since I have posted anything to either of my blogs, this random one as well as my main site aimed towards video game and anime writing. Might as well start somewhere, so, I’ll pick here!
When I last wrote on here I believe I was still in school (wow, and also, oops). I am proud to say that since then I have earned my Bachelors Degree in Journalism and Mass Communication and graduated with the highest honors! Since then, of course, it hasn’t been easy to go about getting into my desired career field but do my best to get experience and make things work.
However, I struggle with keeping up sometimes. I love to write. This is a simple fact that I enjoy and excel at most times, but sometimes a series of walls simply become harder and harder to continue to break through. Busy schedules, lack of inspiration, distractions, life and all of that chaos gets in the way and we veer off track. That, paired with my directional challenge, oftentimes gets me a little farther off track then I ever would like to admit – and here we are now!
I have attempted some freelance writing, aside from writing on my own accord to hopefully gain more knowledge and get my feet pointed in the right direction. Unfortunately, my luck has not been so great with that experience. Best of intentions, poor judgment perhaps. It was a great demotivation to get started with another site, only to have my work pushed to the side without any reason or word for a great length of time. Multiple times I contacted to inquire on the status and each time I was promised it would be handled immediately…perhaps my definition of immediately is a bit different (it really shouldn’t take MONTHS). I do believe I was patient and understanding throughout it all, but this particular wall stopped me in my tracks. My responsibility was to this site and I wanted to give my full effort for them; but when my previous work is simply promised to be published and forever stuck in limbo, I, too, became stuck in limbo. It has been frustrating to say the least.
So here I am, with new and difficultly found motivation to try and get going again. For a while I plan to write for myself at least until I get back into a more regular schedule of writing. After that period I will start looking for more freelance opportunities to hopefully gain terrific experience and get where I need to be going. I never expected it to be easy but I know that I will succeed in time.
So here’s to starting anew!
