“The great beyond” being beneath the heaping pile of schoolwork that I’ve been under for the last couple of years. Yesterday, May 31st, was my last day of high school. Shoving four years of school into three, taking AP classes, and participating in my community theatre group – it’s been two years of “Well, at least I got five hours of sleep last night…”
This has meant putting many of the things I love on standby. I haven’t read more than a book a month (if that) in almost a year. Unless you count school-required reading, but I doubt you want a review of my AP US History textbook. Of course, this blog relies on a robust reading habit, and I’ve been starved of fun books for so long. My hope is that I can get the most out of this summer and spend as much time as possible reading.
And writing. Yes, writing. I’m afraid I’ve almost forgotten how to write fiction. My goal is to revitalize my imagination, my writing, and my blog. To those of you who haven’t entirely forgotten about this little blog of mine, I hope you’ll give it a second chance and help me pull it out of the gutter and get my online presence back on its feet. And the best way to do that is simply to read some of my nonsense here.
So, I guess I’m saying: Welcome back to Wordbird!
