Obviously, blogging isn’t everything.
I just turned 43 (The Year of the Towel come to an end without the answer to life, the universe, and everything…), and I didn’t even blog about the day.
I’ve lost my way. A long time ago I told true stories…but that well is empty.
I came across this video series I really like. Here is one episode.
Obsession x Voice (Failed Writer #6) from Yuvi Zalkow on Vimeo.
And now I’m pondering what my obsessions are. Well, writing, art, the brain, Doctor Who and Torchwood, speed skating, and women’s rights. Some things I’ve avoided for fear of upsetting folks…but should I be worried about that? Really?
Lots to think about. Watch the video. Watch the other ones too.

There will always be detractors. Someone will always be upset about what you’ve written. All you can do is what you think is right. The rest will take care of itself. If I worried about what every single person in my life thought, I’d never do anything except take a shower and eat. People are constantly judging my every move.
Sometimes I don’t care what people think. Other times it freezes me up. It depends on what and who. We must keep going! (And I say that though I am filled with doubt.)
I watched the video and half of another. He has a lot in common with certain stand-up comics who make me feel the same way: I find them incredibly annoying and difficult to listen to, but I find myself mesmerized and unable to stop listening until the end. I’d have to gather the patience to listen to some more of his work to see if it’s useful. I agree with obsession X voice. That’s one thing I got out of it that’s worth keeping in mind. Thanks for sharing this find. Your towel is nowhere near needing throwing. It’s just taking a break.
I don’t know. I’m very much in a throw-the-towel-in mood right now.
