Last night I was at a party and someone asked me, “When are you going to start blogging it up again?” and my immediate response wasn’t so much an answer as a realization: “Wow…I haven’t blogged in a really long time.”
Now, that’s not entirely true. I blogged last week on my theatre group’s website, just a brief little snippet about what makes being a theatre artist so great. But when was the last time I blogged as dramachicky? September 27, 2012. Just over 8 months ago. I checked. I was going to include exactly how many days that is, but that’s math I don’t feel like doing right now. The point is, it’s been long enough and I’m coming back.
One of the things I figured out about being a writer while I was still working on my graduate thesis is that rules are meant to be broken. The last time I blogged consistently I gave myself rules about how many times per week I would blog and what days I would blog and what I would blog about on what days…
And suddenly, blogging felt like work. Not that it isn’t work, but it should at least be fun work, right? I’m a writer for crying out loud; I ENJOY writing. And if the rules are killing that enjoyment then maybe I just need to chill and blog about whatever my little heart desires, whenever my little heart desires it.
So here I am. No rules. No promises. Just hopes for my blogging future. For now I’ll tell you that as both a writer and a theatre artist I have some pretty exciting projects in the works that I want to keep you posted on. *pause to dangle carrot* One of those exciting projects involves the very first production of my play, Drowning Ophelia. So stay tuned, because dramachicky is back…again. And this time, there ARE no rules! ;-)
