I’ll make this short since I’m on a roll with a couple of writing projects and I rue the thought of being away from them for any extended period of time.
It probably has something to do with the saying about striking while the iron is hot. I don’t know if the iron is hot but it’s definitely good and warm and it’s still sitting in the embers of creativity. God knows I’m doing everything I can to keep the flames going.
Eventually, I’m going to become ruthless with my time and who I allow to covet my time. As it stands, I’ve been doing it for awhile already. I’m looking forward to the middle of April when I cast off a major responsibility I’ve had for the last 10-12 years. I can’t wait. As a result, I’ll be making adjustments to my social media. Let’s just say I’ll be doing some major house cleaning on one platform in particular. Other platforms where I’m active, have been undergoing gradual changes. And the only reason I haven’t been vicious with a couple of those accounts is because of professional considerations.
But I can assure you once those professional considerations are off the table, I will be culling the herd like nobody’s business. A purging, if you will. I am so looking forward to to it when the opportunity comes.
Call it spring cleaning. Call it a re-configuring of my social media accounts to better represent who I am now. Call it whatever you want. There are a lot of things that are not a good fit for me anymore. The company I keep online right now and the company I kept two years ago are radically different.
Since I started writing, lots of things have clashed it. Sometimes, those clashes have left me in a murderous mood. Let’s be honest… me in a murderous mood is not something you want to experience or witness first-hand. All this because of my need to write.
Right now, I’m working on the balancing act between writing and everything else that interferes with writing. I’m figuring it out but tossing out the albatross that has been hanging around my neck will go a long way in fine-tuning my writing life.
It won’t be long. And I’ll be free.
