Ghosting At the Edge of Shadows



Months fade. Days run by like water and too often, we listen to nagging excuses.

For me it was a lack of ambition. Annnnd inspiration, strong will. Of course there was determination, motivation, stress, the abundance of cynicism, questioning my ability, defeatism, and doubting everything from start to finish.

In other words, I am a writer.

And so I’m back. No promises because that gets me in trouble. Goals—when kept—work great. When not, well, it’s a killer. Having firm objectives works for some people but not so much for me. Live and learn.

And thanks for the cheese. (You know who you are)

  2. Yeah, I like to treat goals with healthy caution and make sure they know who's boss!

  3. Yeah, sometimes it's best not to promise things as that can be too much pressure. Glad you're back.
