There’s something funny about January 1.
For many, November (and sometimes even December) mark the beginning of a surge in activity. As the new year approaches, we find ourselves simultaneously working extra hard in the workplace and at home, as we strive to be ready for all that is expected of us.
I’ve recently completed a short story, which I’m currently calling Changing Courses. It’s a 5,000 word realistic fiction short story, and if anyone fancies reading and providing feedback, please let me know. I am, of course, also open to providing feedback in turn. If you are interested, please either leave a comment with your email, or use my Contact page to provide appropriate information so I can send you the story.
Thank you in advance to anyone who chooses to offer their feedback.
When I first started this blog, I’d hoped to post 2 pieces of content a week; 1 on writing, and 1 reviewing a story.
A year after I began posting, I found that I needed to revise my plan to 1 post a week, alternating between the two.
Unfortunately I now find myself struggling to maintain that level of consistency.
Therefore, for the time being, I’m letting you know that I will continue to post, but it won’t be with the same regularity as I have in the past, though I’m confident I will be able to manage at least 1 per month.
I do apologize.
It is my hope, with time, that my rate of writing will increase, and, hopefully, if I am able to make writing a source of income, I will be able to reduce the amount of time I spend on other jobs.
In any case, I will continue to do my best, and hopefully, with time, I’ll be able to rebuild the “queue” of posts that I once maintained.
Thank you all.
I think it’s important to share our experiences, not only so that others might learn, but because writing something down changes it, and writing with a purpose even more so.
It’s a long, difficult road, and even though I’ve it heard many times, from many authors, the true meaning of those words continues to surprise me.
I really have to thank all of you.
This has been a remarkable week.
