Doffing the Recluse

As I sit here behind the screen, I realize that I have stayed away for too long in my own house of mind. This departure from my website to my blog has mostly been interrupted by the rat race of life that has found its claws into me and dragged me into the 9-5 of everyday life. Being caught up and distracted and exhausted by chasing my own tail, be it at making ends meet, it has come to my attention that there has been unfinished business to do.

I must take the step.

Now, without myself initiating to get up and open the door, I might not ever be allowed to go out there and show the world a bit of my thoughts, processes nor ideas on life.

So, to catch everyone up on where I stand. After two years ago, surviving a car accident and falling into a deep depression, to where I wanted either to run away from my life or even take it, I have serendipitously turned things around and found my way into returning to the craft of expressing myself. In doing so, I am revisiting a part in my life that I have been running away from since 7th grade and now facing the music. To challenge myself, develop myself and prove to myself that I am capable, I have enrolled myself in an MA program in English Lit, with a concentration in Creative Writing. I am hoping to get my skills up, so that I may begin crafting some stories to develop, write and share.

I am going to use the blog as a place that I will frequently (hopefully) visit and share all the different ideas, thoughts, and interests along the way. I haven't yet figured out my format, or goals even to what my exact intents are, but for now I am hoping to just throw out stuff regularly and figure the rest out along the way.

As this is going to be a place for me to share whatever it is that will come to mind, that my door is open, for not just me to go out into the world, but to invite those who would like to come in as well. I am looking forward to any comments, critiques, reviews, ideas, or whatever from you as well. Please feel free to always shares with me your thoughts, whether they be praise, or challenges, or even something negative. This is a place for me to learn and see how/if I may be influencing other people, artists, or whathaveyou's and I am eager and waiting for all the voices out there who might be nudged by me in any of what way.

So, hopefully, this will be the first in many of this years posts. Let us see where things will continue....
