Apologies for the lack of substantive posts lately. The Day Job hasn’t been insanely busy, but it’s been consistently busy, which means I have not had a moment to pop online and do any posting. Plus I’ve been doing a lot of offline and personal things well, so I don’t always have the time to pop in and post.
And yes, I’m still editing. That’s going to be a while. *sigh*
I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now, and it’s high time I act on it.
I’m going to take a little time off and think about what I want to do with this blog. Of course I’d like to keep it going, but it seems to have lost its direction. Or more to the point, I never gave this blog much of a direction other than posting thoughts about writing and all the behind-the-scenes stuff that goes along with it. One can only be a pantser for so long before one runs out of ideas and starts repeating themselves.
More importantly: I’ve been VERY lax with the business end of the writing biz lately as well, and that is not a good thing.
I have two books out there doing diddly because I haven’t been trying to sell them. They’re just…out there. In a void.
And that needs to change. I need to put them under the spotlight again.
Plus — and this is a BIG plus — I have some publishing-related plans that I’d like to put into action. More on that at a later time, but for now, those plans need serious attention.
I’m not sure how long I’ll be afk, but I won’t be posting again, at least with any susbstance, at least until mid-August. I may do a fly-by or two, but that’s about it.
Thanks for your patience and understanding. I’m hoping I’ll be recharged and a hell of a lot more active when I return.
Y’all play nice while I’m gone, now. 🙂
