Welcome to the year 2022.
That sounds so science-fictioney when you say it like that. Hell, the original Blade Runner was set in 2019. Where are our flying cars, dammit!
But actually, it’s a bit of a time loop. Every year it’s the same thing. Here I am, once again, posting another New Year’s resolution to write more and maintain an active blog.
Wait? Blog? That sounds so “2002.” Is this a time loop, or did we travel back in time two decades?
Anyway, on with the post…
This (I mean it this time) is THE year that I get my act together and start writing and publishing again! It’s been a while since I’ve put fingertips to typing keys to actually produce a new story and/or script. There are reasons. The big move from Southern California to Nashville TN. Then 2020 happened. (Don’t need to explain that.) And then, 2021 happened. (Much of the same as 2020.) But, not all was doom and gloom over the past two years. The biggest highlight was that my family moved into a new home on November 30th. We’re finally homeowners!
And with a new home, comes a new office for me to write and create. So, I’m declaring that the dust has settled and I can get back to doing what I love—writing.
The main purpose of this blog is to keep me writing. If I’m stuck on a script or story that I’m working on I hope to pop over here and hammer out a little non sequitur nonsense or such. Also, I’ll utilize this platform to discuss and announce various projects that I’m working on—in addition to my newsletter The Rough Draft. (Have you subscribed yet?)
So, I’ll try to keep the posts on the shorter side, as well as entertaining. But most of all, I’ll strive to be consistent. If readers are dropping in to read my posts I will be encouraged to write more. Not just posts, but my comic and novel projects. Seriously. Knowing that people actually care about what I’m doing is the best motivator to do what I’m doing.
That’s all for now. Go ahead and strap on your personal jetpack and enjoy the rest of your day.
No personal jetpacks in the year 2022?
Classic science-fiction speculation wrote a lot of checks that it can’t cash. Until next time, may The Force live long and prosper with you.
