It’s a new year and I’m still hangin’ around.

Do you ever wonder when I’m going to give up the ghost and let it all go? If you haven’t wondered, I’ll be honest and say that I have. I have wondered a lot and have been close many times. And yet…

I’m either a glutton for punishment or… I… I’m just a sucker for pain (Thank you Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, X Ambassadors, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Wayne). Maybe I’m just tenacious and don’t know when to quit, even if it seems that I’ve done exactly that.

I’ve let everyone down from readers to editors to publishers to friends, but let’s be honest here… The one I’ve let down the most, the one who has suffered the most is me. It’s not the fault of anyone, but me. No matter how much I’d rather it be on someone else, it’s not. It can’t be. I’m the only one in charge of this train wreck.

And I still have stories to tell. I still have books to write. I still have things I want to say. So, for the time being, whether it’s a year or two or more, I’ll be here writing, publishing, reinventing myself, growing, changing.

Just thought I’d let you know…
