And then sometimes, you don’t blog for two and a half months

12 January 2015

Or three months. That’s how long it took between deciding to write this post and actually sitting down to do it — a further two weeks.

And what is the excuse for this lack of blogging? What’s the reason?


Sometimes, doing a thing becomes a habit. You do it because you’ve been doing it for the last six months, two years, whatever. You just do it because it’s a thing you do, it’s who you are — you’re a writer, you’re a podcaster, you’re a blogger, whatever.

Unfortunately, the same principle works with not doing a thing. You get out of the habit — going to the gym, blogging, whatever — and then, all of a sudden, it’s just not a thing you do. You’re not a blogger, or a writer, or a filmmaker, because you haven’t blogged, written, or made any films lately.

So, long story short, I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing a lot of things I should be doing. And this isn’t a New Year’s resolution or anything, but I’m going to be getting back to a lot of the shit I should have been doing for the last couple of months (the one that’s germane to this post, of course, being blogging).

So stay tuned. Rants about Star Trek and recaps of great things I’ve read or seen are inbound.

Also, it’s 2015, so get your hover board game straight. We will all apparently need those skills in just a few months.

    I went for quite some time not doing updates on The Juggling Writer. I had said what I wanted to say at that time and focused on writing and other things. One day, I started thinking less about the story I’m working on and more about the act of writing again and…updates are more regular.

    I know with the podcast, we also get the chance to get ideas out there, and while it would be easy to turn things discussed there into posts, I know I usually feel like, “It’s out there…I am not going to make the effort to say it again elsewhere,” even though that’s probably a wise move.

    Look forward to regular thoughts again…

      Really, this is all an excuse to put the “Data’s Cat” rant out into the world.
