2008 is the year of the written word, as far as I am concerned.
Writing more is my resolution for this year. I have a love-hate relationship with writing, and I always have. It’s been a roller-coaster with us -- periods of intensity where we can’t get enough of each other, and then long weekends where I don’t want to have anything to do with writing and can’t bear to be near it. I have had a basic understanding of the ups and downs of our relationship until just recently, when everything became a bit more complicated. Now I recognize that there is yet another layer to our dynamic – whether I love or hate writing depends on whether it is private or public.
