Back around the end of January I decided to hit the brakes on both of my blogs for a while so that I could get things reorganized a little. Between then and now I managed to finish a video on glass projects, only to have two more videos ideas step in and a third split into two scripts. I finished the first draft of a second novel in a series; the first novel in the series has been sliced, diced and recombined and is now on the way to the editing team who will turn it into Julien fries and then get it back to me… I started the month with one nonfiction project that I wanted out by the end of the year and another that I was trying to fit in to get to press next year; they have since invited a couple of friends to join the party. Yeah, it’s been a bit busy.
If you are doing something you love (and trust me, when it comes to writing if you don’t love it don’t do it) you will always have something to do. It is true that I got things done and somehow ended up with more work on my plate than I started with, but I also got something else out of this ‘break’. Happily I once again have a functional schedule and know where I’m going! And now dear reader, now that I once again know where I’m going, I’m back on the blogs.
This blog has always been about writing and that is how things are going to stay; it’s a blog about writing, the writing process, and some of my experiences as an author. I will be adding a few new things, but this one is going to stay on topic.
Over on the other side of the house at Words Mean Stuff we will be making some changes, but all for the best!
Sometimes there is great power in taking a break, or even just shifting your load. Sometimes the key to moving forward is to stop and consolidate, and that’s what I’ve done in the last few weeks.
Thanks for baring with me dear reader and see you next week
