The Time is Write

Originally posted on July 31, 2006

You are not a writer unless you write. Well, I write plenty; just not necessarily about the topics that I am most passionate about. I am typically writing on behalf of a client or drafting an email to a vendor or contractor. My schedule is usually filled with what "needs to be done" - the jobs that pay the bills.

Don't get me wrong - I've been fortunate to work on some wonderful projects. It's just that the majority of them are not mine. While the client work is great and I want to continue to grow and expand - I plan on changing up the game plan over the next several months. I want to write the stories that interest me; about subjects that I am passionate about or that just plain old piss me off and most of all I want to spend a lot more time writing just because. Just because I can; just because I want to and just because I have to - to satisfy the writer in me.

I have thus far been what I deem a "lazy blogger" - hopefully the third time is the charm.
