I is the awesome, the awesome is I.

I was thinking today about what I would like to write about.  In the past, I’ve always searched for a schtick of sorts upon which to hang my hat.  I am, by nature, a niche girl.  I think that was what was so appealing about my time with The AntiCraft.  I got to really delve into the nichiest of niches, and play.  It was a lot of fun, but eventually it came time for me to move on.

Since then, I’ve sort of struggled to find my own niche.  After a time, it sort of ceased to be skulls and zombies.  I tried to make this blog about mental health (when I still had my own domain name), I’ve tried for serialized fiction, craft blogging, weight-management blogging, and any other number of grooves I could try to hang my hat on.

The problem?  I don’t wear just one hat.  I’m not really sure anyone does.  We are a many-hatted society.  Multitaskers.  Hardly anyone does the same job for their entire life anymore, and interests come and go.  Mine have certainly been known to fluctuate.  Hell, I named this site “Genre Impaired.”  That should certainly say something for how focused I can be.  (BTW, thanks Zab for helping me with the name oh so many years ago)

To that end, I think I’m going to stop attempting to be so dern regimented in what I can do with my personal space.  This year, it will be more of a focused effort to just blog.  As I progress with this, I might once again find a niche to grab onto, or I might not.

For now, a bit about me:

I am a 28 (soon to be 29) year old, mother of one, wife of one, friend of fewer people than I used to think but more than I used to think I deserved.  I have co-written a published book, AntiCraft: Knitting, Beading, and Stitching for the Slightly Sinister, and I hope to one day be published in either fiction or a different genre of creative nonfiction.  I attend college right now to eventually get a masters (about six years down the road at my current rate) in Counseling Psychology.

As you might have guessed from the aforementioned book title, I am an avid crafter, though I do take breaks from it to focus on schoolwork and writing.  Right now I’m in more of a writing mode, so I am reworking a novel I wrote back in 2007 during NaNoWriMo.

I also have a cool dog.

That is pretty much me.  Normal Ne, livin’ life, taking everything as it comes.  Interesting content may or may not follow.


One thought on “I is the awesome, the awesome is I.

  1. I like the title of the weblog, but I thought it said: Gene Reimpaired! Sorry, I added another ‘e.’ Kinda like people have turned my name Alsopen into Als Open instead of Also Pen. Every name’s got a story!

    I’ll be reading! Thanks for the heads-up!

    I’ll still be over on LiveJournal in the same place
