when I'm happy I write less

Once again I have been neglecting my dear journal.

The thing I have come to realize is that I have been happy the past few days, happy in a different way than ever before, really, which is wonderful, but it doesn't give me much to write about because I don't have words for it.

I was baptized on Sunday and am now officially one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am different because of it, but different in a way that I don't know that I will ever be able to describe. It is a wonderful feeling, though, I will say that.

I think I am going to abandon the play I am working on. Not forever, but long enough to give it a chance to become something... something interesting, I guess. It's rather flat and quite cliche at the moment, although it isn't really, but it is and there's something that's just wrong about it that I can't quite figure out. So perhaps I will let it rest a bit, work on something else, and see if I can get something new and fresh out of it. I hope.

I don't understand how other people can do such brilliant things and me, my things are... well just lemons, I think. I want to write something that is gripping, something interesting, something beautiful. I want to write something that says something and means something and...

Maybe I'm buying into the necessity of being profound as it is displayed to me from writing sweatshop a bit too much.

Maybe maybe.

Ah well... to writing... I have energy for it at the moment for some reason.

A happy congratulations on your baptism! You must be on cloud nine--all power to you!

Love, D.S.
