the bitch is back

Well, this is probably the longest hiatus I've taken from blogging since I started doing it. There has been enough roaring demand from the masses that I've finally been able to bring myself to resume.

The reasons for my absence: other writing projects, stress over not having a permanent job, which I finally do have, for the first time in over a year, and a general sense of blogging ennui that seems to affect everyone practicing the art form at some point. I think I actually saw an article in Chicago's always incisive Red Eye newspaper that asked the question "Is blogging dead?" Like most questions posed by the print media in regards to the Internet since it's inception, the appropriate answer is "That's a stupid question." but there is something to it.

I think every form of writing requires certain muscles that need to be exersised. And exercise is painful and unpleasant for everyone. It just is. Blogging has its particular demands, just as playwrighting or essay writing or grocery list writing does. Right now, by writing, I am exercising. It is painful and I want to stop.

So I will. However, I'm now promising to write something every weekday for...a while.
