5 September 2013- Dust off the Shelves

Long time no see. Yes, it’s been a hectic month (last month and this one already), and I have been in the oxymoronic state of having SOOO much to write about, and then nothing at all.

Let me explain.

First off, I haven’t had hardly any time to write, what with my and my wife’s schedules changing every week last month. She got a job and then I started with school stuff, and there were some crazy family things… Yeehaw for us? In any event, it’s not been the most smooth-sailing set of weeks of our lives, and as a result I haven’t had the time to make much progress on my latest story.

Now, for some news. I have temporarily set the Imdreyad project aside. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but after edits, I haven’t been able to make much progress on it. I know where it needs to go, but I just can’t seem to muster the emotional energy I need for this story. I have been writing some though, which has been good. The project is still in embryonic stages, so we’ll see how that goes.

Also, the next few months are going to be really busy for me. I’m working on a research project, helping to edit an academic journal, helping a professor at the local university teach a class and all sorts of other stuff, so posts are going to be hit and miss, once again. I do hope to start posting a bit more regularly, however, so that I can keep myself responsible with my writing. My goal is to have a rough draft figured out by Halloween, but we’ll see… I’m only about 2% of the way there so far.

Gotta run, but I promise I’ll be back!
