The Pitfall of Being a New Writer
One of the things I've had to learn and have had a very difficult time in running this blog is that I really shouldn't make promises.
Not that I don't want to keep them, it's just that I get excited and want you to know that something's coming. Then real life gets in the way.
My latest failure is finishing sharing The Stone Man. What's happened is that I can't find pages for the second half of the story that will scan decently. It's not much of an excuse, but combine that with the fact that my day job kicked into high gear as it always does during the second week of August and that's what's happened. I know that at least one person is probably disappointed and for that I'm sorry. I didn't get any comments on the first twelve pages of the story (not that that's at all unusual for this blog) and so I ascribed the lack of attention to a general lack of interest.
I'm a writer, sure, but I also have a day job. I spend as much time as I can writing and there are things I'm working on that I really want to tell you about, but I can't. The reason I can't is that what I'm working on is a Work For Hire and it's very cool. (I promise! Uh oh, wait a second...)
So I won't promise anything to you any more. I will tell you that what I'm looking at is a tentative schedule to resume regular updating on Wednesdays in October. I'm taking September to really get my feet back under me while I'm working the WFH stories. It's my intention to drop in once a week to give you some tidbit of information or say something pithy just to keep my blog up on your reading list.
There's a lot to come; I just need to finish a couple of things first.
