There’s a certain quality of professionalism, craftsmanship, and artistic refinement that gradually emerges in the work of those who don’t take days off.
I want the privilege of observing such refinement in my writing.
I want to be a great writer. I want to be polished. I want to be a masterful technician, a transparent soul, a stimulating thinker, and a lucid conveyer of ideas.
This takes consistency and commitment.
So, what of my previously announced hiatus?
To hell with it (for now at least).
I know that I’m dealing with various sorts of challenges and annoying elements of chaos, but that’s life.
I don’t want to wait until the storms subside for me to resume my acts of creation. I want to create while the storm is at its peak. I want to send a signal out to the universe that says, “I am here to follow my bliss and fulfill my calling in the sunshine and in the rain.”
I’ll be alright. Part of the reason why I know I will be alright is because I write. And for me, writing is a kind of prayer, a kind of catharsis, a kind of zen.
With that being said, I now announce an immediate hiatus from my writing hiatus.
Who was I fooling? I don’t have a choice. My spirit compels me to write.
So, write I must.
I hope you’ll continue to join me.
