It has been too long since I last wrote and even longer since I last posted anything. A handful of you may ask what I’ve been doing with myself to keep me away from the keyboard. Well, the short and uninteresting answer is that I’ve been working a couple of twelve-hour shifts in the months. I’m done with that now and look forward to getting back to normal. As I get back to normal I’m going to work in more time for writing and reading; I’ve fallen horribly behind in both.
I’ve been looking at a lot of free writing contests and coming up with stories for them. The competition is fierce and I personally hold little hope myself of placing (much less winning). So to keep me motivated for these exercises in writing I’m going to start posting those stories to this site when the judging date has passed. At the very least it will give people a chance to read my previously non-public stories. It’s not going to be a regular thing with any kind of schedule, but we’ll see how the next year goes.
I’m going to add a little more structure to the blog as well going forward. Mainly I’m going to be talking about what I’m writing and reading. I want to figure out how to open up more about what I’m writing and have written. I should mention that when I say “I’m going to talk about what I’m reading” I don’t mean reviews I mean first impressions and analysis. Reviews will continue to happen separately from the blog.
I believe that is all I’ve got to say for now. So I’ll be back Monday with my next blog post.
