Next Saturday, I will marry.
I’ve been a bad blogger.
The last year has been so crowded: getting engaged; buying, renovating and furnishing an apartment; moving in; buying a dress; planning and preparing the wedding and festivities; working a 60-to-100-hour-a-week job at the highest levels of international engineering; making a life with my fiancée.
All that is true, but it’s no excuse. The real problem is, ironically, I have so much I want to write.
Writing doesn’t come easily to me. Technical writing does, but that’s highly stylized. This is different. I didn’t do any non-technical writing between high school and starting this blog. I have to work to be clear and concise, to be satisfied with what I write.
I have 20 draft posts on topics that are important to me. I’m not happy with any of them.
I’m going to try to write something every day this week. I hope that it will be a journal of the most important week of my life.
If I slip, I hope that you understand.
Don’t expect anything on Saturday or for the three weeks after. I doubt I’ll have time to write anything on Saturday, and my fiancée has forbidden computers on our honeymoon.
