After a hiatus over probably over 2 years from my last film blog, I finally feel like doing this again. Actually, I always felt like doing it, but I was burnt out on it. It ran for over 5 years, and over 1,500 posts and ended up feeling like obligation rather than something for fun. I hate obligations, so the writing suffered terribly as I was posting just because I had to post, not because I wanted to post.
Well, now I’m sort of stuck in a place where my professional writing has just been absolute shit. I’ve been stuck in a rut, writing reactions to the films I’ve seen instead of searching for insights into the films I’ve seen. And that needs to change. I need to find my voice again, because I barely recognize the sad-sack behind the words that I got the paychecks for.
But it also needs to be in a place where I’ll keep up with it, and I will here thanks to a friendly competition with Rahat.
