"Published author, aspiring novelist . . . welcome to my world of madness!"

It's Been a While

Truly. Months, I believe. I've never been a huge fan of blogging. The list of reasons extends far past my short little legs and stretches for miles. The top two?

1. It's distracting and takes time away from writing.
Call me selfish, but I like love my writing time. I'd much rather delve into a fictional world than ponder over the day's issues. My muses are a jealous lot and don't take kindly to outside distractions. Believe me, Twitter alone has been an issue. What it all boils down to is that spare, quiet hour, and if I would I rather spend it blogging or writing. Sorry folks, writing typically wins!

2. I'm beyond private.
Call it a quirk, but I don't like talking about myself. At all. Trust me, there's really nothing fascintating about my life. (Though...those people chained in my basement may be a different story.) I spend most of my time tethered to my laptop cranking out pained sentences or replying to endless streams of e-mail. When not doing that, I'm usually cooking or cleaning. No one wants to read about these things (people in the basement aside) So really, I'm doing you all a favor.

That said, I realize blogging is an evil necessity. Who knows? Maybe someday I'll find my niche here in blogersville and come to find it tolerable enjoyable. I really wouldn't hold my breath on that one though, people. That is, unless you're into that whole self-inflicted torture scenario. Which, you know...if you are...that's just fine too. Maybe you could send me an e-mail or two about an experience you've had. ;) I'm always looking for new inspiration.

I promise, I will try to be slightly more dedicated here. Just don't hold me to it.

I've been uber busy working on a serial with another author, and listening to Seir's demented ramblings. Hopefully, by August, I'll have finished up the first book with him. I'm still exploring a few publishing options open to me in that area, but things are going well. Busy, but well!

I can't complain.

Well, I could...but no one wants to read about that either. ;)

Hope you are all doing well.

~Best wishes and happy writing!~


  1. Hey, try doing Friday Flash if you aren't that into blogging. It is a once a week thing and involves writing fiction. I joined a flash group and this weeks topic is cursed objects. Last week it was Bad Taxidermy. It's fun seeing what everyone comes up with just from one topic.

  2. Hehehe hi stranger. Maybe you should nix the blog and focus on twitter? Something that doesn't take so much time from your writing?

    Blogging's only worth it if you enjoy it. :-)
