After giving it some extended consideration, I’ve decided to make some changes to my blog post schedule. While I’ve enjoyed providing roughly ten blog posts a month, that number will be cut in half starting next month. The simple reason is I will have a newborn and I cannot quite determine or guess what my schedule and capacity will be for producing posts on a regular basis.
So, starting in April I will be posting every fifth day of the month (5, 10, 15, etc.). Nothing else will change. You all will continue to get my musings on writing, storytelling, films, and so on. The Shoals to the Hallowed flash fiction posts will continue to be posted on the last post of the month.
Also, with the end of April fast approaching, I will be working on the first newsletter of the year. You can definitely expect baby news in that one, hahaha! And at least a dozen pics of cuteness!
As for my book, life and its interruptions have slowed my plans. Often, and other writers can attest to this, our schedules are somewhat cracked and tossed about like a ball by the unexpected. My last bit of editing touches have taken longer and some minor additional fixes need to be in place before I’m satisfied with it.
The goal for the year remains to be agent querying and I am working at getting there. My wife and I have even bought a desk for the living room where I plan on seating myself in order to focus my mind. I’ve noticed I struggle to stay focused if I remain on the couch while trying to work. Even if the tv is off, I think I associate that position with fixed relaxation rather than active creation.
I’m continually thankful to everyone who reads, comments, and encourages me as I pursue my dream of publication. You help me push forward.
Call to Action: Seeing as how there will be fewer bits of content in the future, I am pushing my newsletter more. There may be more meat in it seeing as how I will want to make it more appealing. So, if you haven’t signed up for it and want to get exclusive book reviews and Shoals to the Hallowed short stories that specifically to fill the gaps in the flash fiction, please sign up! It’s easy and free!
