(Obligatory) First Post

Welcome to my new blog, where I'll write whatever comes to mind and whatever I have the guts to publish. I haven't kept a blog for a few years now, feeling like I either: a) had nothing worth saying, or b) didn’t have the motivation to write. It happens to all writers at some point. You just don't know what the next first word is.

Sometimes you have to just start. I know, I know. It's not just about starting - more about actually following through - but I'm not going to lie and say I haven’t done the exact opposite time and time again. I have so many ideas for so many projects I want to work on and yet feel like I have no time to get any of it done. Alas, there is a magical thing called “time management.” I'm hoping this blog helps me stay focused on my writing outside of screenwriting, which I am currently studying in graduate school. All of this feels boring, so I'm sorry for submitting you to it. I actually want to get right to work.

My first post will be a comparative essay/article/rant about a popular film/book that's swept the world into a blind frenzy - in certain ways.

I'm happy to be back and excited to get started.


See you soon,

Erik
