The simple answer is, right here. In Iraq. At my desk, in my hooch, staring at the computer. Yeah, I've been out on a couple of missions, nothing too exciting really. Mostly I have been right here, trying to come up with another post for OS. See, this was originally supposed to be my little outlet where I could ramble and chart my travels and activities here in Iraq. So I put up my first post, and it got picked up by the editors, and all these people read it, and it was awesome. I had some idea that that could happen, but I never thought it would happen.
I managed to get a few more EPs, and then I had a post that didn't get picked. That's when I realized that I was getting really invested in the popularity of what I was writing, and not just letting it flow. I forgot that I am rather competitive sometimes. Oops. So I have been sitting here trying to figure out what to write and how to write it in such a way as to get picked again. I have a good friend who's a "real" writer, she's published books and stuff, and she suggested to start again with the "little" stuff. Then a work friend of mine suggested the same thing...
So here's the deal OS. I'm going away for a little while. Not permanently - just a break to get my head back on straight. I'm going over to Tumblr for a bit to write about little stuff and try to work out my blogger's block so I can write about big stuff again. Thanks for reading, it has been truly humbling to get so much feedback from people I have never met. I look forward to coming back to you all with some new material! If you want to come check me out, you're all welcome.
