Long time no write. It's funny how life knocks you for a loop sometimes. A few weeks ago, my dad had a very mild stroke. He's doing a lot better now, but it really shook me. I'm spending more time with my family these days, and I'm finding a lot of comfort in reading and scrapbooking.
The day job is squeezing me a bit right now. Alison Kent wrote a blog entry about being able to write at her job. She links to another writer's blog entry (excerpt below):
If you keep using the same creative muscle over and over and over at your job, my personal experience indicates that doing the same type of activity is probably not gonna happen in your spare time.As someone who is a full-time writer and editor at my day job, I can say that some days it is hard to come home and write. Right now it's not happening at all, because it is a very busy time at work.
The good news is I have several stories in various states of completion--I just have to pick the one I want to go with. Once work eases up a bit, I'll get back to it.
In writing news, I've finished the third round of edits to The Seventh Sense. I'll post the official release date soon.
