After reading the article “‘Platforms’ are Overrated” by Stephanie Bane in Creative Nonfiction, I have decided to focus on finishing my memoir. Obviously I’m not ready for a blog anyway, with three posts in nine months. Next time I am back to this space it will be to talk about mistakes, shame, perseverance and repairing a clean, broken-slate identity.
This also stems to other social media, namely FB. I’ve become more voyeur than participant and that is largely due to my time constraints of parenting one-year-old twins and an eleventh grader. Eeking out moments to do what I love is not easy but imperative to both my heart and long-term sanity. I will remain a voyeur and check-in to make sure I don’t miss too much of my friends’ awesomeness. It’s just time that shit gets real. As the eleventh grader would say, Peace out.
