losing the blogging bug

I am alive, at school, functioning on at least a basic level. I have been memorizing poetry: too much Sylvia Plath, not enough Shakespeare, but still gratifying, still soul-feeding.

I don't know if I will ever really blog again; I don't find myself being called to this sort of self-writing. I'm taking a creative nonfiction course and every one of my autobiographical words is devoted to the weekly essays. I could, theoretically, just post what I write for that course, but there just isn't much draw in blogging for me right now. Anyway, all of the essays are written especially to please the professor. Because that's how to get good grades!

I'll keep this around. Maybe I'll start using it again at some point.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear this. I have been looking forward to new words from you.

I understand, though, if the spark just isn't there. I'm sorry to be missing your voice, but I don't begrudge your decision to not write here.

Keep in touch every once in a while, though. I've valued your insight.
