Yet ANOTHER blog?
I have this unnatural obsession with cataloging and organizing everything I can. I have Twitter and Facebook when I feel like vomiting out a few words. When I am so inclined, I have a LiveJournal (LJ) account for longer musings. At one point, I had a blog for my spirituality. I signed up for this one, interestingly, just because I wanted to subscribe to someone else’s blog. J
So, this blog has lain dormant for most of the last year. Prior to my purging of the content of this blog for a reset, there were only 6 posts. Of these, the most recent was on August 25, 2011. Of those 6, the only one with any real content was already copied over on my LJ.
What I intend to do THIS time –
I am creative. Oh, I suppress it when I’m at work, because I get very… giddy and hyper when I begin to really work at it, and I suppose that I feel that I must maintain some decorum.

- When you can look at an empty room, and know how to put furniture and accessories in it “just so” to make it aesthetically pleasing, you’re creative.
- When you arrange the knick-knacks on your shelves to make each stand out, while still tying into the whole, you’re creative.
And, I come full circle…
It has taken a long time, but I am finally coming to terms with my creativity. It’s particularly ironic that I’ve had to convince myself of this, simply because it wasn’t even 20 years ago that I told myself I wanted to be a fantasy author. Of course, I haven’t exactly done that yet, and while that’s sad, it is not tragic, for I know that I have more years ahead of me, and can accomplish much in a short time, if I but apply myself.
I am going to apply myself, and I’m going to start by maintaining this blog.
