I’m Not Dead (yet) | Blog

, ,

Hello… it’s been a while! I had a weird year in 2022 (divorce, moving house, immense amounts of social anxiety, a healthy dollop of depression) so I haven’t posted here in quite some time. However, I have been forcing my presence upon the internet in other places, chiefly Medium where I’ve penned such ‘hit’ articles as:

I’m not doing new years resolutions this year because let’s be honest… I never bloody stick to them. Instead, I’m trying to just… live. Not exist or survive, but live. Be happy. Feel creatively fulfilled. Have confidence in myself.

I’ve let anxiety rule me for so long that I don’t even know who I am or what I want to do with my life, so 2023 is for figuring that out. I plan to write and create as much as I possibly can and share the end results with the world without fear.

I’ve avoided writing here and posting links to things I’ve written because I have (had? maybe you’re all gone and I wouldn’t blame you!) something of an audience here. It sounds nonsensical, but I found it too daunting to share stuff I was writing with folks who are invested in my writing. Fear of not being good enough, embarrassing myself, letting people down, all that malarkey.

And while that fear hasn’t gone away, I’m trying to face it head on. From here on out I vow to share my stuff with blind, reckless abandon. Because nothing beats the feeling of knowing that I’ve mildly entertained someone with something that’s come of out my brain. And the things that come out of my brain that accidentally aren’t entertaining? Eh… they’ll just disappear into the ether, no harm no foul.
