Well, its 2016. How did this happen?
The news on my end mostly involves my divorce being completed, now in the process of moving, and the job is going well. I’m still not doing any writing, and I feel terrible about that.
Going from being a consultant to the 9-5 life is much more difficult than expected. Your free time really is compressed, and there’s not a lot of time to write if you want to get any sleep, or decompress from the daily commute. Weekends become precious, and I find there’s little enough time to get chores done, socialize a little, and fill in the sleep deficit, to find time to write.
Right now, the passion isn’t there. I still have all the stories, notes, half finished projects, but not the drive to work on them. Something seems to be slipping back into gear, but it is too soon to say much about it. After all, it could be that I just bought myself a swanky new fountain pen.
I hope all is well with you.
