Missed a week(isn)

Category: Life

So, I officially missed many days of posting. I was posting shit anyway. If I don’t turn this thing around by April 1, I’m quitting the blog entirely.

    Please don’t. I just started reading and I look forward to seeing new posts. I just saw you on the TAL show when I rented the first season from the library last week. Your story and your enormous strength pop into my head evey day now. You are a true individual. Don’t deny us of such a rarity.

    Yeah, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t. Especially since I just got here.

    It’s your prerogative and you don’t owe us anything.

    Nevertheless, I really enjoy your writing. Lots of us do. You’ve written some good stuff this year, and it would be a shame to quit when you’ve really just gotten started again.

    Perhaps, rather than pressuring yourself to write an Awesome Post every day—and being disappointed when you don’t—you could shoot for something like a short story / essay once a week. Or twice a month. Or however much you feel like it.

    Please don’t stop writing though. You know as much as any of us how it’s like grabbing ahold of something rare. When you have it it’s like riding the wind, but once it’s gone, it’s like it’s gone for good. I used to write seriously when I was younger. Some bad things happened and I stopped for ten years. You fake it, and then you mourn it, and then it’s like that part of you belonged to somebody else’s life.

    What I mean to say is, maybe it’s not the “stopping” but the “stop trying” part that diminishes you, and the only real thing you could have ever done is to just hold on tight and claw your way through. I don’t know. It’s the heaviest loss, and you don’t even realize until years and years later how much you’re gone.

    I would really miss your posts. You have such a unique flavor and a valuable perspective and you are just a piece of work. And I’d worry about you, for what that’s worth. Probably nothing but hey, just saying.

    If you don’t get any enjoyment out of it, who am I to tell you what to do? Having said that, I really hope you don’t shut it down. You bring a fresh perspective to life and I check in with your blog every day to see what you’ve posted. Especially like seeing your essays and fiction writing.

    Keep going.

    I hope you find the strength to keep writing. Many of us appreciate your thoughts.
