I’m back, sort of. Our internet and TV service were installed today while I was at work so I guess it’s time to get back to the blog. But things are going to be different now. This was the first time I ever really thought about shutting down the blog. It was so nice to be away from it for a while and concentrate and sorting out my writing demons. I’m nimbly working my way through the beginning of a new project and I’ll start posting again in full force once I get up to the 5,000 word mark. And that will be the last you hear about this project.
I’ll still be posting here because I love it. It gives me an outlet on life and it’s not one I’m ready to give up. But I won’t be talking about writing. I’ll still post links to stories once I publish them and I’ll post exciting news (like that THUGLIT PRESENTS: HARDCORE HARDBOILED and THE YEAR’S FINEST CRIME AND MYSTERY STORIES have started popping up in local bookstores) but no more of the day-to-day writing stuff. I need to be doing that in a vacuum for the time being.
Since that means there will be substantially less whining here, I don’t suspect most people will be upset. There’s plenty else going on in my life other than writing and like Guyot keeps telling me I need to get my priorities straight. When I finish the book I’ll let you know. Until then, it’s all mine.
