are you there, world? it’s me, jolie.
when one hasn’t written a blog in oh, say almost a year. that’s right. almost 12 months. not quite 12. but almost. where does one start? does one start month by month? or does one start where one left off? or does one pick up as if no time has passed?
these are the questions i have pondered for the past few weeks. these are the deep and profound philosophical questions that i like to think have plagued academicians since the beginning of time. and just like them, the answer to these questions elude me. i’m at that point of no return. that point of feeling like it’s quite pointless to pick up anywhere. that point of feeling like i’ve fallen deep, deep, deep down the writers block canyon….and clawing my way out is almost unfathomable. insurmountable. impossible.
but alas, i defy to let this overwhelming passage of time defeat me. i refuse to surrender to the power of the blogger champions (you knowwwww who you are). someone must represent the back row bloggers. the blogger dropouts. the less-than-stellar blog-posting cyber writers. those with noble ambitions but yet, they somehow fall short of the finish line. those that have so much to say, that sometimes, they just don’t know how to say it all. those that really and truly are bloggers in their heart and soul. no matter what their BPR is (that’s blog publish rate for the newbies and yes, i might have just made that acronym up). because they are good enough. smart enough. and by darn, people like them.
so today, yes TODAY. i will not be defeated by the mere 9 months it’s taken me to write a blog. i will not wave the white flag of waning writers willpower.
i. will. prevail.
