I would like to start off with an apology to those who expecting a new blog post last week. But given usual amount of traffic I get for this blog, I’m going to take a wild guess that nobody really noticed.
To be honest, I’m not bothered by that probability. This blog was created for my amusement and to keep writing when other aspects of my writing were (for various reasons) at a standstill. This blog wasn’t created to build followers.
It turns out, that I’ve been busy writing since my second book, Risk, came out last November.
No, I’m not working on another book just yet. But I have a bunch of ‘little’ creative projects and a collaboration with an illustrator/artist who lives on the other side of the world that will keep me busy for this year.
I’m starting to build the writing life I’ve been wanting to live. Is it going bring in extra income? I don’t think so. It would be nice but that’s not the endgame for me. I’m doing this because it makes my creative soul happy.
Creating that life includes making some changes. To start, I’ll be posting bi-weekly here. Posting weekly isn’t working for me anymore. But I don’t want to let this site gather dust, so we’ll see how posting bi-weekly goes.
Another change I want to make hasn’t been implemented yet. By mid-April, a number of folks at a non-profit organization I volunteer for, will have to start looking for my replacement. I love this organization but it’s time for a change. My goals simply don’t match up with their goals anymore. Something else is calling me and I have to follow.
So, there you go. I’m off to build a writing life I plan to inhabit. I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.
