What's the difference between distraction and insanity?

It has been a little over 4 years since I last posted on this blog.

The big question remains...will I make any more posts?  If I post more, will I post with any regularity?  This all remains to be seen.

I've felt as if I've needed this outlet for a little while, so its not surprising that I would eventually wind up back here.  In the past, writing has helped me relieve stress and blow off steam in a way that few other things can.

I'd like to say that I will post more fiction or some essays regarding things that have happened to me recently.  Chances are, my posts will continue to be like the previous ones...

                                "I forgot this was here!  I swear I'm going to use it more!"

                                "I'm so distracted when I sit to write.  Too many things keep me from it."

                                "I swear I'm going to post here more!  Hold me to it!  Nag me!"

So there it is.

These are my excuses.

These are my trying to do the same thing over and over and over and over and over...SQUIRREL!

There's that distraction thing again.  I can't even get the excuses published without distraction.

In other news, I've been taking my bits and pieces of stories and working them into a screenplay.  It seems to be going okay when I'm in a really creative mood. Other times, I reread it and reflect on how brilliant I am, but this one bit of dialog needs work...maybe I'll just rewrite it a bit.  Oh, and this exposition is way too obvious, maybe I need to rewrite it.

You get the picture...

Its pretty terrible when your own output is what is distracting you...
