Anybody reading my blog my have noticed that I haven’t uploaded anything new lately. Well, allow me to explain myself.
When writing posts about anime, my ideas come to me in fleeting, effervescent moments. These moments sprout in my head throughout the episode or, having finished the subject, afterwards. The small bubbles eventually grow, and I begin to do some research to get some more perspective on the prospective birth. This egg, having been nurtured, eventually pops and makes its way into substance; it becomes a post.
Most of the time however, these children don’t make it. What may have seemed a wonderful idea grows into a cumbersome and faulty article. I become occupied with matters of life. I lose interest in what I’m writing. Things happen. Posts for me are very much like turtle eggs: all of them struggle to reach the sea, but the majority are devoured by forces out of their control.
Lately I’ve gotten to thinking: what way is there to give these posts their metaphorical grave markers? Some of the posts were pretty neat ideas, too. After a bit of thinking, I decided to make myself a tumblr. In this tumblr, I plan to put all unfinished drafts of my posts. And who knows? Maybe with a bit of necromancy, I’ll make them into full posts.
