As some of you may have noticed, all has been quiet on the Gotham front lately and it’s in no small part due to the global pandemic that is sweeping then resweeping the world.
I struggle with an anxiety disorder which means, even when things are going well, my brain finds things to obsess and worry over. Now that there are actual things to obsess and worry over, it doesn’t mean my brain has stopped making things up. It just means I have been overwhelmed by anxiety more than usual.
Now, that is neither here nor there because I have decided it’s not good enough and I need to get back into it. Writing about things I love (and loathe) makes me happy so I should take it and run with it.
This time around though, it’s going to be different and significantly more varied than my past posts have been. That’s not to say I will be writing about different things – horror, comics and Disney are my true loves – but I will be mixing up how I write about the things I love (… and loathe).
A sneak peak at one of these is that I love writing lists. And I want to start doing that again but in a way that is personal to me. Stay tuned for more!
One of the main changes will be not just writing about everything I consume. While I love writing about things I feel passionately about, one way or another, I get bored writing about the things I don’t really care about. I want to stop writing content for the sake of content and write what makes me feel something – even if it’s to warn you that something is horribad. I might do a weekly “one-line wonders” for the things that didn’t impress me enough either way for a full blast.
I have also tried not to write about things I’ve seen before and to only give fresh takes on things I’ve watched/read for the first time. But writing an article about Beetlejuice on World Geekly News recently made me realise how much I love dissecting my favourite movies.
So while it may take me another couple of weeks to get all of the ducks I need in a row and make this happen how I want it to, I really wanted to give loyal Gothamites an explanation for the radio silence and discuss my plans moving forward.
I had been frozen in place for so long that I didn’t know how to move forward again, but I’m ready to take the first step. Thank you all for your patience and support!
