I got a letter today from Chicago. It was anonymous, but said that since I left PW, I’ve lost my edge and have become too soft. It also lamented the fact that I post so infrequently.
Both are probably true (and certainly the latter), but it’s hard because I have a full-time job that doesn’t involve blogging. Before, when I was at PW full-time, it was part of my job to be a writer and to blog. Now it’s a luxury — it’s whatever time I can grab during a day when it would be appropriate, which isn’t very often. Doing direct services and program management in a mental health organization doesn’t exactly afford gobs of time during the day.
That being said, I am still alive and trying, trying, trying. I miss you all. I miss this forum. I wish when I got home at night I felt more like blogging and less like zoning out with a book or TV or iPhone solitaire. For those who live locally, I am going to do a reading at an upcoming First Person Arts event. So that’s a little something. Here’s the info.
It’ll be with Emily Steinberg — a graphic artist who I LOVE. Any fan of graphic arts/novels should check her out. Go here.
I wish I had more right now, but I don’t. I’ll post later, and I promise it’ll have some edge.
