I’m back, BITCHES!

i am back bitches

I deeply admire people who are consistent about keeping journals and diaries; they dutifully make it a point to jot down every detail as if their life depends on it. Letters become words, words become sentences, than paragraphs and ultimately adding up to a whole body of moments, pages upon pages, of memories, deep thoughts, cherished experiences, wild ideas, poetry, anything and everything that matters to them. It’s beautiful.

So, How does someone go about developing such a discipline? I haven’t figured it out yet. The only time I actually write is when I’m being paid for it. I love creative writing but I don’t see myself making a living from creative writing, unless I finish my last two novels and decide to adapt them for the big screen (my lifelong dream).

This isn’t the first time I’ve set up a blog. As a matter of bloody rotten fact, Telavivnights.com v1 got hit with a nasty virus and TelAvivNights.com v2 was hacked by a couple of Right Wingers that were less than pleased with what I wrote about them. I was only being honest. I didn’t have the energy to rebuild the blog after that happened. I kept the message I received from them just to remind myself that there will always be people out there who take life too fucking seriously.

Well, I’m gettin’ back on me horse now and I’m starting fresh down the road. I don’t have a whole lot of free time but I intend to write as much as possible and stick to it much the same way I stick to exercising, eating right and all that other lifestyle crap I’ve adopted over these past few years. 

No worries, I don’t intend to write a single snippet about my boring, hum-drum life. I can’t imagine writing down trivial, day to day stuff like: “The dog took a massive crap on the carpet today”. No, none of that.

Tel Aviv Nights 3 will be a ‘blog’(fucking hate that word) loaded with opinions, outlandish ideas, racy, jarring rants, editorials, essays and other notes that will surely get someone’s panties up in a bunch at one point or another.

Yes, dearest readers, I am going to make it my solemn duty to write one interesting, thought provoking, enraging, hysterically funny or otherwise terribly amusing entry per week for the sole purpose of keeping my own sanity.

Creativity is a drug which I cannot live without.

If I make you smile, that’s jolly good. If I make you angry, it means you’re thinking. If I hurt your feelings… so sorry, but you will get over it and if I plant the seed of change in your mind, I hope something positive will grow from it.

My only hope is that this time around I’m not referred to as a BLOGGER or categorized as a leftist, rightist, feminist, racist, environmentalist, capitalist, anarchist, Marxist, socialist, Zionist, activist or any other sort of ‘ist’ for that matter because I’m neither of those things. I’m just Diana, full of opinions and ideas, a Spanish-American girl in Tel Aviv, Diana.
