Lots going on right now as I finish up the August Newsletter and prepare for the Lost Season 1 re-watch. Staying busy without straying too far over the edge to being too busy is a fun tightrope to walk (says no one ever).
I’m seriously contemplating shifting my blog schedule to every fifth day of the month once the Lost re-watch is over. We will be getting close to the holiday season by then and I think I need to explore “less is more” when it comes to my blog.
Also, I just think I can better focus and put out better content if I give myself more time to plan. There are some long-form posts I would love to do but never feel I have the time to work on. Remember, I’m a new dad and have a full-time job on my plate. If anything is going to get cut, it has to be writing related. It’s a good way for me to write and practice, to exercise the creativity muscles, but I can’t very well cut my hours at work or neglect time with my son or wife.
If I do decide to do this I will make a formal announcement and share what the monthly schedule will look like. I appreciate the continued support and enjoy interacting with those who leave comments. It continues to be fun and beneficial to me and I don’t want to abandon it entirely.
I think I originally said at one point the newsletter will be sent out on the 30th but I think I forgot August has 31 days. So I’m going to give myself another day and say those of who who have subscribed (to so if you haven’t) should be seeing it in your mailbox Friday afternoon.
Little side note, I’ve been watching the show, Castle Rock, on Hulu and have found it quite good. It’s inspired by several Stephen King stories but not an adaptation of anything in particular. The setting and some characters are references to some of King’s works. It reminds me a bit of Stranger Things in some ways but completely its own in others. It’s more creepy than scary and has a compelling story with great characters. Check it out if interested.
I will be releasing the new Shoals to the Hallowed flash fiction piece on Thursday, the 30th, so look for that! Have a great week!
