Better Late than Never

August 29, 2014

What an apt title for this post considering today’s post is a bit late. I was just reading through my WordPress feed and this one really touched my heart, so I wanted to share it with you all.

This post is exactly what I am dealing with right now. I have been so focused on whatever gigs are coming my way, I have forgotten to write what I want to write. Just because.

Whatever moves you. And do it for the joy of it.

Until next time!

However, I know that blogging, journaling online, whichever nomenclature that we assign it, provides a chance to, as Hemingway said, “sit at a typewriter (computer in this day and age), open up a vein and bleed.”
