I haven’t blogged since my birthday. That’s the day Elmore Leonard died.
I’d never presume to have the kind of connection with the man or his work that would necessitate four months off. The truth is, I haven’t had much to say. I had finished my pilot and was struggling to move on to the next one. I was buried under a mountain of unfulfilling work (sometimes walking away feels amazing) and generally not feeling great about things. I don’t want this blog to just be a place where I fill up space and waste your time. More than that, I don’t want to waste my time reading it.
My 2013 summary was sad. WordPress sends it out every year, and let’s just say my most visited posts in 2013 weren’t even from 2013 and leave it at that. But I didn’t feel the need. I only need to blog when I have something to say.
Tomorrow is a new day. It’s the promise of something more. It’s the chance to do and be better. So let’s all do and be exactly that.
“No more half measures.”
(Yes, I stole that from Josh Williamson, who stole it from “Breaking Bad’s” Mike. But the sentiment rings true.)
Onward. Upward. Forward.
