The Captain has returned! Again!
It had been a long five months. The last time I took an extended hiatus from Captains Quarters was from October 2010-February 2011. This time around the hiatus also started in October but managed to stretch all the way till March. What can I say; 2013 was a tough year. I had a lot of bad news to deal with over the past year, which left me feeling drained and uncreative. At first I was simply too busy to write, which led to feeling too tired to write, and eventually feeling too far behind to write. The thought of trying to write about my life seemed too daunting of a task, which made it easy to keep putting off until later. I kept waiting for some kind of spark to get me back behind the keyboard. It turns out that what I needed was a fizzle, not a spark.
As I have said before, I hate the month of March. I have my reasons. There is nothing else that I want to do in March, so why not get back to writing? Fill all that nothing with something. So that’s my plan, to jump back into Captains Quarters. There are so many things I want to write about from the past several months, some of it good and some of it bad. I was not sure where to begin, but I decided this past weekend that it would be best to start with the bad news. So get ready for Bad News Week here at Captains Quarters! Only the worst for my loyal readers!
But in all seriousness I think that discussing the bad times first will make it easier to move past them and on to all the good stuff in the weeks ahead. So let the bad times roll! I’ll see you tomorrow for the first installment of Bad News Week. Man does it feel bad to be back!
