I haven't been posting much here like I used to in the past and I think a lot of it has to do with writing less than I used to. I've always seen writing as something that has hills and valleys and sometimes consistency isn't always there for whatever reason. Despite not writing the volume I used to, I'm still writing, it's just other creative endeavors have sidetracked me. This includes a band, a podcast, a renewed interest in art, and even designing games. The fact that I have so many creative outlets I suppose has reduced my need for writing to be my sole focus. I could certainly see this as a bad thing, but I'm looking at it more as being satisfied creatively rather than being depressed I'm not focusing on my writing like I used to. It's not even that I have writer's block (which I don't believe in) it's just that I'm dead set to finish a certain project that's become much longer than I originally planned. My last Splatter Elf short was published in November 2015, and I had planned to have many more available by then. But 2016 hit me in the face with so many things, I've just been riding the wave. So question: do you often get sidetracked by other creative endeavors, enjoy it, and ride it out or do you stress that your main love, writing, is getting the cold shoulder?
