I enjoy Twitter. I can't stand Twitter. I stop using it. I come back.
I enjoy writing here. I stop writing here. I disable the site. I reenable the site. I start writing again.
As life shifts back and forth, my priorities get tossed askew. What I had time for yesterday, I don't have time for today so I get it in my head that it's better to shutter something than to neglect something.
What I leave out there neglected serves as a reminder that I should be creating and it's the creating (writing, podcasting, etc.) that sustains me and I feed off of that energy. Knocking it down puts the frustration out of sight but then the dust clears and I realize I need that energy so I get back to it until the cycle inevitably repeats.
But this time is different and the next three posts, one on each main creative outlet I have, will explain why.
