2012 Was Never Here

Yes, I missed an entire year of updating this blog. That really isn't so bad, seeing as how I was actually writing during that time. I know the idea was to explore what I'm doing and thinking while I'm writing but it didn't exactly work out that way. I found that while I was actually writing, talking about it kind of defeated the purpose - I tended not to write because I expended that energy and initiative on writing about writing.

If, from that, you inferred that I am not actually working on anything presently, you are correct. I have a handful of projects in the works, each at a different point in development, but I have not actually worked on any of them in some time. I am trying to regulate my time spent online more and that has been more difficult than I thought it would be simply because I find myself with so much time to fill.

I was hoping that empty time would fill itself with writing but that didn't happen for all kinds of reasons. I gave in to the boredom and inactivity and spent a lot of time watching cheap TV. I watched a lot of documentaries, including a few on writing, so I learned a little bit along the way. I am also thinking of trying to write spec scripts for some of the sit-coms left (before they go away, too). That's a nod to the early cancellation of Don't Trust the B in Apt. 23, creator Dan Harmon's exit from Community, and the end of 30 Rock.

But I didn't write a single thing here the entire year of 2012. And that makes a lot of sense to me.
