Happiest of new years to you, dear readers. I shall address you as though you still exist. Well, of course you exist. Whether you still follow, subscribe to, or stumble upon The Literate Baker on occasion is another question entirely. I'm an optimistic person, though, so choose to believe I'm not solely writing for myself.
I hope the last few months have been good to you. Mine were marked by good food and good friends, some career soul searching, and lots and lots of writing (courtesy of a graduate writing course with the legendary Minnie Bruce Pratt). All in all, I find myself happy and ready to embrace whatever 2013 tosses my way.
Although I'm avoiding resolutions specifically, I am attempting a renewed commitment to writing. Naturally, that includes this blog. What I'm still wondering, however, is the form that will take. I'd given myself some rules with regard to this blog. Silly, I know, but I wanted to be a professional. I wanted to have a baking blog, not a personal reflection outlet.
Then, of course, I considered whether I should have multiple blogs. And then I took a writing class where the point (for me at least) was to find ways of integrating my many, seemingly contradictory, selves. Right. Well then.
All I know for sure is that I want--no, need--to write more. So here I am. What that means and where we shall go remains to be seen. I do hope you'll stick around. I'll do my best to make it worth your while and...
Keep it sweet.
