Hey there. After writing a post on How to Not be Mad at George R.R. Martin it is kind of awkward to say I want to take a leaf out of his book but hey, he’s probably not reading this.
After trolling his blog for material to fuel my rant (and scouring it for any hint of A Winds of Winter release date – none found) I must admit I came to admire his format. Short, sweet, and more or less too the point with more than a hint of endearing familiarity. I figured I could learn a bit from that.
I could go into a lot of the reasons why, but at the end of the day the result remains the same. Between a surprising amount of increased responsibilities at my actual job and the attempt to keep up a head of steam on my work-in-progress I don’t have the bandwidth to put a ton of effort into my blog at the moment. I’m not ready to abandon it though. So instead I’ll give it what I can.
The posts will be short. Like little nuggets of insight into my life if you will. I hope to continue writing on a number of topics ranging from writing to TV and film to my attempt at fitness in the form of jogging – pronounced “YAH-ging,” I believe (cheers, Cara – that one made me giggle a few times). Make no mistake. Most of it will be shameless self-promotion so consider yourself warned. At the end of the day, all I want to do is write. And so I will.
Hope to see you around.
Until next time,
