I have gone through a lot over the past year – professionally and emotionally and my writing suffered from it. I thought maybe it was all over with and I drastically deleted My Confession.
But never did the questions stop coming, asking if I was going to have a new story or if I was going to post the old ones.
My current job takes a lot of energy and my time. That’s what happens when you have a professional life and work hard so that you can afford the finer things in life – like Backstreet Boys cruises and Nick Carter solo shows. (LOL!).
But over the past few weeks, I’ve been slowly working on this. It’s a small version of My Confession. A lot of the stories are in PDF form and I plan on putting more up, which will be updated here when I do.
Listening to the clip of Nick Carter’s new song “19 in ’99” is what solified it for me. I started this site in 1999 when I was 19. I was proud of how long it had been around and I regret deleting it.
It won’t be updated every single day. It might go a month without an update.
But it’s here.
And I have a new story – “Wildest Dreams.”
I think part of my writing issues is that I worried too much about what other people thought – other people that think they are better and that what I write is trash. I was worried about my cliche story lines, but isn’t that what we’re supposed to do? Write what we like? What we love? To me, I like writing about musicians because it’s a career I always wish I had. Or maybe making someone a journalist, because that’s what I am in my real life.
Writing is supposed to be fun. It’s not a job. I’m trying to make it fun for me again.
