So I haven’t written in this thing in the past month. During that month, I’ve moved, gone on vacation, worked a lot on Feminspire, and decided to start an online literary magazine to showcase some of my writer friends. That’s a lot of projects!
I’ve also made time to drink champagne in a limo at 10 am.
But it’s not like I spend all that much time on this blog, so what gives? What made me neglect it for so long? I think that I found it to be vapid. We often think of vapid as an offensive word, because it’s so often used to describe women. You might think it means lacking depth, but it doesn’t. It means lacking liveliness–flat, dull.
Instead of trying to update every day, I want to update 3-4 times a week. Instead of pictures and food and whatever it was that I was writing about, I want to focus on the more serious stuff. I want this to be my public writing journal, a place where I can first test out ideas, passages, scenes.
So if you just want more talk about lipstick, it probably won’t happen here. But I am working on a post about Law and Order: SVU and crying on the subway.
