I have returned from the Odyssey workshop, and I'm still processing all the changes that it's wraught in my brain. One of my classmates has already written a blog post about the experience, which sums up a lot of what I would have to say on it: Growth: The Odyssey Debriefing (And a State Of The Blog Address). Go ready, it's a good post. I'll wait.
I have to say I'm having similar feelings about my own blog. While at times it's a joy to share things, often I scramble for topics to write about regularly, and even more often I scramble for time. I started this with the hopes of "building a platform" for when my work (eventually) came out, and to be honest I'm not sure whether it's really pulling its weight for how much time and effort it takes to do regular posts. There are avenues such as Twitter where I seem to be far more able to make connections and build my own "tribe" of people who might be interested in my work and my voice.
But there are things that can't be done on twitter, and there are occasions where I like the chance to say something lengthier. For the moment, while I work out what I'm doing, I'm going to cut it down to just a weekly post. Which, for this week, is this one.
