I'm back from a "soul-searching" hiatus, so to speak. Have things changed in the last 4 months? Less than you would think, and more than you could ever imagine. The intention was to change. For a while, writing here became all-consuming. The more that was written, the more superficial it felt, as if what was spilling out of my own fingertips didn't belong.
One of my professors told me once, "Stick to what you know. The rest will follow." Henceforth, it'll be less fluff, more meat, more story. Now, aside for the flair for the dramatic, know well, I'll try my damnedest to keep it going this time around.
