The more observant of you might have noticed the lack of updates of late. By “of late” I mean in months, which in Internet terms is fucking forever. For the less observant of you, let’s pretend that it’s still summer 2012, we were still waiting for Dark Knight Rises to come out, and 1 billion less people had heard of Gangnam Style.
Those were the good days.
I’ve been questioned, told and nagged to get writing again instead of rotting my brain on the likes of 9gag and YouTube, by all of about two people. We’re on the Internet afterall, nobody seriously gave that much of a shit besides me that I’d stopped writing.
But I’m gonna tell you why anyway.
Yes, laziness has a lot to do with it, but that wouldn’t have explained the 8,000+ words I’ve written in the last few months, and the zero word count on the blog. I guess I just needed a break. When I started the blog, I had clear visions of what I wanted to get out of it, I had an idea of what the “finished” product would look like, and I guess I was 50% way there.
But I just needed the break. I wrote the same amount of shit that nobody saw, but to publish it meant actually reviewing what I’ve written, editing it, semi-polishing it, and make some sort of coherent sense out of it. I guess I was just mentally exhausted after a pretty tough year outside of the cyber space, and I just let myself drone.
Things went a bit shit in life, then it got better for a few weeks, then it reverted back to shit. So I shut myself out from majority of the world in December, and spent the first few weeks of January forcing myself to do this “socialising” malarky.
I think I might have lost a couple of friends along the way, I may lose a few more in the coming months. Seems my life carries more drama than I realised.
So why am I telling you all this Internet, you unforgivable arsehole that remembers everything down to the most minute detail? I don’t know, maybe it’s a cry for help. Or maybe fuck you.
So anyway. I’m currently working on a couple of projects, so chance of blogging is… low. But I may. See, one of the project is this dumb idea of a webcomic I thought about doing since 2007, and with projects like these come rants, updates and plead for page views. In other words, watch this space.
