It’s been waaaaay too long since I’ve blogged. I took a seven month hiatus for many reasons. One of the main reasons was that I’d hoped to start freelancing again and well, that hope was dashed by my last freelance project.
I’ve been lucky that I have freelanced since 2010 and have always worked with professionals, received timely payment and have been treated fairly by the organizaton. My last freelance project ended that streak and quite honestly it left a bad taste in my mouth.
I unofficially took 6+ months off to regroup and decide what I wanted to do. With zero desire to pick up freelance writing work, or even to write on my own blog, I’ve remained silent, but I’m finally coming back around.
Long-time blog readers may notice some changes, mainly, I’ve removed my books page and streamlined my site.
This move was intentional and the long story is I’ve done so for numerous reasons, the biggest of which is that I’m heading in a different direction with my writing. I plan to explore a couple of romance subgenres and as such have decided the smartest way to do so is through pen names. I won’t mention those pen names here at this time, and maybe not ever. Just know, I am still writing, even though I’m not sharing as much.
Which brings me to the subject of my post-where to go from here?
I plan to use my blog in some of the ways I have in the past, to keep my writing chops relevant, I really do love blogging. And to also chronicle certain aspects of my life, such as my interest in minimalism and simple living, my bookworm-ish tendencies and my love of the great outdoors.
I have a lot of changes coming up this year, so I may post less frequently, but I don’t expect that to become the norm.
