So, 3 years have passed since I last did a blog post, and 2 years have passed since I last released anything. However last night just before my brain shut down and drifted into sleep, I decided that I wanted to do a post to update on a few things. Why the long gaps between things happening you may ask? Well, let me explain.
My life over the last couple of years has taken a massive change in direction - for the better I might add. I now have a family to think of, whereas before I did not. I wouldn't change it for the world either as I love them dearly. However, anyone out there that has a family will know that if you try sitting down and doing anything for 5 minutes you get about 30 seconds in before getting pulled all over the place! This is all excuses on my behalf really, because as soon as they go to bed that's when things can be done. I have chosen to spend the time with my loved one more than sit at my laptop writing. She is massively supportive of me and what my goals are, and encourages me to write, but I make the excuse not to. That being said, I have found my rhythm now and realised when I'm away with work (which I am every week) there is an opportunity to write. When I get a chance to sit down for half an hour, there is also an opportunity to write. Whether it's 100 words or 1000, it's still writing, and something that's pushing me towards my goal.
Currently I am away on holiday with the family, and despite it being full on, I've found the time to write. I've also managed to achieve a few things (with the help of a very insistent girlfriend). So, what I have done during this break is below...
- Written another 4000+ words on a work in progress
- Had a cover designed and approved for my next work in progress
- Created another Author Page on Facebook after some time out
- Found my love and inspiration for writing again
Now this may not seem like a huge amount to most, but to me it is all positive steps in the write (see what I did there) direction.
I currently have 4 things in the works. 1 is completely finished but in need of editing before I decide to try and get it out there. 1 is just over half way through, and will be my next release (before the end of this year). 1 is about a third of the way through. And the last is only a few chapters old. Either way these are all things that I have looked over and I'm excited to finish and share with the world.
So.... that's pretty much my musings as we stand. I have lots of work to do, and it's all stuff that I enjoy. I've also decided to update my blog on here more often, especially with things like cover releases, promos, work in progress updates etc. eventually I will work out a way to enable people to follow, so you'll get an alert when a new post has been uploaded, but that's for another day.
Right now, just be assured that I'm back on the right path and loving it!
