How distracted? Well, let’s see. It’s been about a year since I’ve posted on my blog. Maybe that’s my thing, ‘The Annual Blogger’, everyone will be doing it soon. I have the best ideas! Really can’t call myself a ‘blogger’ at this point though.
I wish I could say that I’ve been busy accomplishing things, I haven’t been. I did however manage to stick with, and complete one of my 52 week photo projects in 2015. Yeah, just one of them, it was 52 weeks of themed self-portraits. The other project, 52 weeks of SOOC (straight out of the camera) photos was boring as hell. So when I came down with pneumonia for a few weeks I ditched that project about half way through. I don’t regret it, usually I hate giving up on things, but when you are not inspired by your own art it’s okay to call it quits. Right? Yes, I agree.
So where has my time gone? I have no idea! An entire year, gone! Just like that.
Being easily distracted by all shiny things in sight…..does not help. I mean, I’ve started a bunch of projects. “Started” being the keyword. You know how it goes, almost any given day……..
I start to clean out my basement, half-way through realizing that I really need to see what I have in my garage, I’ll need to make room for that stuff down there. Between the basement and the garage is the craft room. I start thinking about how I should be working on some crafts to sell on Etsy instead, haven’t done that in a while, my time would be better spent there. I sit at my table, take out all of my supplies, ponder some ideas. The craft room is a mess however, I can’t work like that. Let me rearrange it. While I’m in there I start thinking about how I should make it a playroom for the kids too. I’ll need some stuff to organize it. A Home Depot trip is in order. I’ll hit the craft store while I’m out, it’s right next door. I’ll print coupons for it first. Sitting at the computer, check Facebook, Instagram, email. In email I see that I have a new comment on my half-finished book. I really should edit some chapters and post something new. Opens ‘Google Docs’, works on chapter. I make a mental note of how long it’s been since I’ve done that and start thinking about how neglected the blog is. I’ll write something for that too while I have my documents open. Approximately a year later, this is what I come up with. I’m posting it damn it!
See you next year. 😀
