I can't believe that I haven't written a post since January.
Granted, my purpose for this blog has changed over the years. When I first started, it was understood that if you wanted to gain the attention of an agent then you needed a strong web presence with a ready-made following.
Now that that myth has been debunked, I use this blog just to drain some of my random thoughts.
What have I been up to since January?
Much and more.
I lost my job. Well, that's being a bit dramatic. The job I had, which I worked between the hours of 6am and 2:30pm, was switched against my will to one that was between 10pm and 6:30am.
I liked this job. It was easy, had very little stress and gave me ample downtime that I used to sneak in some writing. I was very blessed to land another job before the shift change. This new job is a very good job. A much higher rate of pay, still during daylight hours, good benefits. Downside is no idle time to write. Not complaining, just explaining.
I had to learn how to write at night again. You know, those hours when everyone else in the house is asleep and you wish you were too.
I've been working on a new series. I had planned to write one, publish it then move on to the next one.
That didn't happen.
Instead, once I finished book 1 I couldn't help but start writing book 2 immediately after. The job change came in the middle of all this and I found that I didn't have time to write the second while editing the first.
Just last night I finished the first draft of book number 2 and while I'm tempted to start on number 3, I am going to pull back and get some editing and publishing done first.
If any of you out there would like to know when book number 1 (I will reveal the title soon) comes out, I invite you to click on the link to the right and join my mailing list. I promise no spam, sharing of email addresses, or annoying updates every 15 minutes.
