Do you know what I miss?
I miss not blogging.
What I mean by that is that I miss the sense of possibility and expectancy and wonder that I felt when I was first studying up on blogging, back before I launched the Ominous Comma.
In those days I was reading lots of books on writing, and lots of blogs trying to figure things out.
But once I launched, I discovered is that blogging is a lot of work. Consistently writing your best humor is even harder.
Over the last year and a half, discipline has replaced excitement and my sense of wonder his given way to a constant, annoying awareness of traffic and ranks and stats.
So I’m taking a break.
Looking back, I see that my whole life has been a constant process of self reinvention, with the last two stages being DangerCouch and The Ominous Comma.
But I’m not quitting, not by a long shot.
I’m plotting, I’m hoping.
Be back soon
P.S. Here are a few pieces that I am especially proud of, check them out if you like.
