It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted a blog update, largely because I didn’t have any news to report. Following the birth of our second daughter last summer, I took a bit of an extended hiatus from writing. Between that and a career change, I simply didn’t have the capacity to devote the required time, effort, attention, and creativity needed to write.
But the ember burned the entire time, even when I wasn’t actively writing. So I’m pleased to report that I’ve been back at it for the past several weeks—working both on new projects, and also revising several previously completed [but unpublished] stories.
I’m also excited to report that I’ve recently put the finishing touches on a collaborative project co-authored with my friend, and fellow author, Sean Wark. We spent more than three years on this novelette, from conception through idea generation, and later writing / editing. I’m VERY excited about this manuscript's potential, and where it might get placed!
The next step is to get some stories submitted for publication. I’m ready to pull the pin on the grenade, lob a few stories out there, and see what happens.
