...and I'm already absolutely sick
of seeing political ads and hearing about the elections everywhere I go. Have I mentioned I hate US election years? Because I do...This is gonna be a long
several months prior to the Presidential election later this year...
Well, we're already into February, the second month of the year. Damn, January is already over? That was fast...before I know it, this whole year is going to go by in a flash like last year...I guess when you're not accomplishing much with your life or not really anticipating anything big, time has a tendency to go by quickly like that. Well, so far, I suppose I can say one month into the year that this has been a better year than last year...Of course it's only one month
into the year and there are a full 11 months to go (and an extra day, too!), so a lot could still happen to me this year...But I hope
not. If I can just have a quiet and peaceful year compared to how crummy last year was, I'll be happy
Unfortunately I still have not gotten around to writing anything yet this year. I do want
to get back to writing "Another Family Secret
"...But I must admit I just have not felt in much of a creative mood lately. I just haven't really felt like writing much of anything to date this year, nor have I really done a lot of thinking for my own stories. I feel like I've lost my writing spark some time ago and ever since I've stopped writing as prolifically as I once did. I also must admit, I don't quite feel as passionate about the Raccoons lately as I was a few years back when I wrote two full-length stories in under a year. I still like
the show, don't get me wrong (and of course, I'll always be Ralph and Melissa's #1 fan
), but I haven't watched very many episodes of it lately nor have I thought about it a whole lot in recent times (I have the episode files on the computer so I could watch them anytime I want...I just haven't lately, really). I do plan
to try to be a bit more prolific in writing this year, but I sadly cannot guarantee I will be...That of course doesn't mean I'm going to stop writing Raccoons stories-not at all! It just means it could be a while before you see anything new from me...I have to feel in the right mood to write, y'know. Try forcing it when you don't really feel like it, and you'll churn out a real clunker
In other news...Well, I'm not much of a football fan, but it isn't every year your home team has a shot to win the big game, and with Super Bowl Sunday coming up this weekend, I might as well go ahead and say: Go Carolina Panthers!
(With apologies to my friend from Colorado,
, who will doubtless be pulling for Denver. No offense, and I do hope the Broncos put up a good fight, but I think this is the Panthers' year)
