So, I went over to Mike's house to get help with installing some software. I used to think of yself as a bit of a nerd, techy, way back when DOS was king and the world was young. Now, I just want the software to disappear, or magically appear, and get on with my life--my writing life.
There is so much that I want to say. If I can make it another year or two until retirement, I think I could write at least 6 or 8 hours a day easy--since I do that at work now anyway. But what I really want to do is have the freedom, the space if you will, to write about anything and everything that comes to mind. That's kinda where this blog comes in. I think it's the 6th or 7th blog I've started, but notice that this one doesn't have a theme or a name. It's just a blog on my site at lenhodgemancom. I think, and I'm hoping, that NOT focusing on a particular theme will give me more latitude, more inspiration, and ultimately more stability in my writing.
Stability has always been difficult for me in some ways. I can hold down a job OK, though this employer has been the longest--going on seven years. Relationships--mweh--ten years is the longest. Places I've lived--actual houses or apartments--OMG-I've lost count. Certainly not more than 5 years in any one physical location. More often it has been two or three.
But at this point, I long for more stability--as a base to branch out from, to explore from, to experiment from, to travel from.To write from. To be honest from. To have fun from. To share with my friends and the world. Shrimp for breakfast, software that works and disappears, and a stable place to insert the lever that can move the world.
