If anyone reads my blog with any regularity, you will have noticed that the last year was completely dedicated to the Music Jar project. I didn’t write about anything else on here during that time although I was eagerly beavering away on THE NOVEL in the background.
With a new year comes the opportunity to change it up and that feels like an understatement given what the last couple of months has thrown my way. My intention is to blog each week, with some kind of insight into a considered conversation, a fun aside or a development that is of worth for me to document. I’ve always felt that there was no point in sharing anything unless it created some kind of impact. I like conversation that makes me think, challenges me or makes me laugh. Why should what I write be any different? So that’s what I’m aiming for. To write something once a week that touches on one of those.
For now, it’s all the cliches you can possibly think of as I attempt to recover my position. I’ve quit drinking and social media. I’m in therapy, looking after my mental health and unpacking the deep abandonment issues I’ve always struggled with. This is a time to strip everything back and stare hard at myself in the mirror.
