I had planned to write a stirring post on civics and politics but I’ll save that for a day where my brain is less mushy.
Instead, I’ll catch you up on the month that’s passed since my last post. I do feel some guilt for not blogging for an entire month, but I’m sure you’ll all forgive me. My time has been held captive by the editing process, as I worked to polish up my second novel to a sheen suitable for publishing. The process has gone well, very well in fact, and I should hopefully have the thing out in the digital world in the next few days.
But as the novel fought for my attention, and as the editing process held me caught in it’s relentless pace, my other pursuits fell off of the priority list. and that includes this blog. I’ve had a handful of topics to cover (though I’m hard-pressed to remember them now) but after a day of editing, I’ve had little interest in getting back onto the computer.
To be honest, I hadn’t realized how much time was passing with the world being deprived of my blogging. I vaguely remember making some kind of promise to post on a schedule, but I say a lot of things. But, as much as its thrilling to focus on one task to the point of fixation, I think it’s healthier to set aside time to blog. And so I shall!
