I used to love to write. Poetry, short stories, I even started a novel once during Nanowrimo. I have a large box full of old journals and I loved the number of research papers I had to write as a history major with degree number one. Then at some point I just stopped writing. Some of it is mental health related, I'm sure. I still have a paper journal that I occasionally pick up on the bad days, especially when there's a stretch of them.
But more and more I'm realizing that I miss real writing, so there's going to be some changes coming to the blog. For whatever reason, I've always felt like politics should be kept separate from blogging, whenever I've had one, and I'm not sure why. But that's going to change. I'm setting myself the goal that aside from the basic gardening/DIY/mommy stuff this blog would otherwise have I'm also going to try and make sure there's at least one post a month on serious and important topics. There's one percolating in my brain now but at this hour it's really best to sleep first and write later.
