Publishing on High Notes

I publish something on a blog when I have something to say, when a point can be made. I’m quiet otherwise. But real life happens in between status updates, doesn’t it? The mundane and uneventful, the low points, the days I feel ugly and inadequate — I wait until it all passes, until something crystallizes from the buildup.

So I’m here to comment on what feels like nothing in particular: the ebbs and flows, the in-between, the bits that add up to create the plot points of my life.

That’s the thing about publishing on high notes — on announcing news or our successes across our social networks. The lapse between one Big Moment and the next can seem long and frustrating, and because I continue to conflate writing with publishing, I tell myself there’s nothing to be said until then.
