Time to start time stamping this bit so you know when I come in and change things - like now (August 10 2009)
Things have once more changed direction. Newland was renamed to A Kookaburra's Laugh and then placed on hold. With gaining
acceptance in an Apex anthology, my writing seems to have come to a screaming halt on the short story front. On the long version
front, I've started a new project - a non-dark YA series. I shall find my niche one day...
Reading takes up an incredible amount of my time - one could say, too much of my time. It comes and goes in spurts but
I seem to slow down and drag my feet after four or five novels in a row. I'll need a month or two off after I finish the current
batch I'm reviewing.
All of my current batch of shorts are still out there doing the rounds with one of them being picked up every six weeks
or so - nice.
My blog posts are slowing down as is my online interaction. This is not because I think it's no longer worth the effort,
it's more to do with prioritising my limited time. I'm writing a few thousand words a week, if I was to maintain my high level
of online activity, that would drop to 1K if I'm lucky. I can't have that so everything else to do with my writing, which
doesn't actually have a positive impact on me producing words in the current manuscript, must fall away. I want to be a writer,
not someone who is known to circulate in the writing community with a few short story credits to their name.
