Where I’ve Been and What’s Next

Get Help

You may have noticed that it has been pretty quiet around here lately. It has been an intense few months for me, and there seems to be no sign of it tapering off.

It hasn’t been all bad as I will explain. (Keep reading below for an exciting Sad Runner announcement!)

The Day Job

One of the projects I’ve been working on has taken off and what began as a small software build has turned into one of the largest developments many of us have ever undertaken.

I am a perpetual startup guy, so I have been enjoying much of the work. My masochistic startup fixation aside, building a company this size is an undeniable time-suck leaving very little time to build a blog like Sad Runner.

The Depression

I hope to have the energy to write about the last few months. The doctor’s visits, the tests, the seemingly crazy treatments, the peaks and the valleys are all worth some reflection. The short answer is that things seem to be moving in a positive direction. I can tell that I am getting better. It is a slow and very painful process, but I do have some hope.

The Writer’s Block

I’ve been choking on writer’s block lately. Whether I’m writing sales copy for the day job or trying to write a letter to a friend, the blank page head butts me every morning. The rest of the day is a guilty, self-loathing blur.

My writer’s block started the day after I asked my small group for prayer about a project I wanted to work on for Sad Runner. I asked my small group to pray for creativity and the right words. The well dried up immediately.

If you’ve been reading Sad Runner long enough then you know I won’t let that stop me. Opposition means I’m running in the right direction.

I hunkered down, and though I have been absent from the blog, I have overcome my block and have worked to create something that I am very excited to share with you soon.

Please stick around to see what's on the way.
