Welcome to my short attention span.

I'm not quite sure why I'm starting this blog. But then again, I am a little aware of the reason. The fact is, I've had quite a few failed blogs, and I have a propensity for making a new one every time a new idea pops into my head. My problem is... I like to write, but I have the attention span of a parakeet (which I know, by experience mind you, is not very long). I have a hard time finishing anything, I mean anything, I start.

So I decided to create a blog about my writing, or about my non-writing, so that I actually write regularly, to combat the fact that I don't write regularly.
Or, in other words, this is a place for my brain to purge freewrites, pontifications, and anything specifically related to writing fiction, freelance writing, etc.

Currently I do some freelance writing but have had a hard time organizing myself. In between being a mother of a three year old, making some huge life changes by moving off the mainland, living in a one bedroom apartment with neighbors louder than I can handle, I have tried to find a few quiet moments to focus on my freelance and creative work. I have failed miserably... well, maybe not miserably, but I wouldn't call what I have a success in the least.

(Two hours of getting distracted with facebook, musicals, and Richard Dreyfuss ensues)

Anyways, as I was saying, the reason I am starting this blog is because I am essentially forcing myself to write. Because I want to, but I'm lazy and distracted. I am not being self deprecating, just pointing out some facts as they are. If I can force myself to at least do a little of my own writing on a daily basis, and organize how I am to pursue my freelance work on this blog, and just spew a ton of daily bullshit in general, I will be quite pleased.
