Taking the First Step

After a long, drawn-out hiatus from writing, I have been itching to get back into a routine of posting and reading my favorite online writers again. I made it through the summer, pushed through the bar exam (barely escaping with my life, I tell you), and survived the move to Houston with very few bumps and bruises. I am settled and have a new desk at which I can compose new thoughtful ramblings about my fresh start in the city - but I find myself in the grip of the age-old enemy: writer's block.

I know it is only a matter of time before I find some new insight from my new circumstances - whether in the form of work gossip, dating drama (or lack thereof), family hijinxs, or whathaveyou. And I even have a few ideas rolling around in my (otherwise quite empty) brain. But I can't seem to get it out there into words.

So this is an exercise for me to just start trying again, and an opportunity for anyone with ideas to offer or questions about me to help spur on the writing process by placing their bid now for a topic suggestion.

I have to admit, though, I think the new desk really will help. :) Stay tuned.
