Yikes, I haven’t made a post in almost a year. I really have to stop promising myself I’ll blog more each year. It’s a LIE, self, it’s never going to happen.
Anyway, one of the reasons I haven’t been writing here are those posts of what one might generously call ‘reviews’ of Doctor Who episodes I was writing as they aired, and the fact that I haven’t finished the past two seasons. I have Slight Issues with leaving things like that partly finished. But the prospect of actually finishing them fills me with dread. I don’t know why, it’s not like I didn’t love most of the stories. But I feel like Verity! and Twitter have been filling more and more of my need to discuss the episodes online these past five years, and that plus writing out all my thoughts is just too much.
And it sucks admitting that. Ever since the New Series began I’ve written blog posts about every episode, whether here or back in ye olde Livejournal, but it’s not fun anymore. (Er, to quote Tegan, as you do.) And a couple of people, bless ya, have asked if I’ll ever finish them. And no, I won’t.
And now I feel sort of relieved I’ve decided that and maybe I can actually write something here without my brain going “wtf is this, aren’t you supposed to be writing episode reviews, you should feel very bad about yourself for not finishing those, you know.” Yes, thank you brain, I can always rely on you for the most helpful thoughts.
I should probably tidy up here too; it feels a bit out-of-date.
Anyway, it’s Monday morning, I’ve had two coffees; back to work!
