I’ve actually had to scrap this entire post and start again several times. Y’see, when writing I have a tendency to go off on tangents, which is a big no-no apparently. It doesn’t stop me from doing it anyway though. But when it came to writing this post, the tangent consumed me and ended up becoming, like, 80% of the whole post. So I thought sod it, let’s start again.
Why am I telling you any of this? Well, it kind of goes hand in hand with the entire theme of this post, and how having trouble expressing yourself outside of your defined parameters can affect your blog, for better and for worse.
I don’t really write this kind of thing very often. So you’ll have to bear with me if this turns out even more rambly than usual. Originally, I had meant to post this last week to coincide with Guy Fawkes Night, but scheduling got the better of me, as it always seems to these days. But with so many people talking about Halloween throughout October, and my personal lack of nostalgia for that holiday, I felt like I wanted to present my alternative Autumn experience.
And I really need to get this out now, because the transition between summer and winter feels like it only takes a couple of weeks these past few years.
I like doing these blog tags, it’s a nice break from the type of things I’m normally writing. I have AK from Everything is Bad for You to thank for nominating me to do this one. Especially when I’m feeling a little under the weather and not particularly driven to write anything at the moment.
