July 27, 2019 - "Loss and (Kinda) Re-Gain?"
So it's been a long time coming since my last post and so much has happened. I definitely owe you an explanation albeit a minuscule gesture of a token rather than a truly redeeming prize for such superhuman patience!
Several months ago I sat in front of the same familiar, stunningly-brilliant retina screen I had several hundred times before. From my right hand tipped a beautiful, expertly-brewed cup of steaming, black juice of the gods to deliver the perfect sip for that very moment. Feeling quite satisfied and ready to begin the next bout of a long series of sessions I had been happily speeding through as I developed and grew my newest, most favorite novel, I decided that it was a good idea to set the mug upon the appropriately-titled coffee table with just enough triumphant force to send the most delicate, expertly-aimed splash of fragrant, delectable liquid skittering over the keyboard of the single most important instrument in my entire writer's arsenal; Right into the air vents below the screen on the opposite side.
A year later, now wielding a brand-new quill of sorts in the form of a custom-built PC by yours truly, I'm finally ready to take up the mantle once again. Has it been a long, painfully dry season for my creative prowess and self dignity? Yes indeed it has. It's good to be back.
