The last few months have been a whirlwind. Writing and other activities took a back burner to life. There have been some exciting highs and some difficult lows for myself and those I love.
BUT, I’m writing again now and up to over 70,000 out of an anticipated 65,000 words, with more to write before the story is complete. I have to overwrite; it’s just my process. I trim down my first drafts, like a sculptor chiseling away at a statue–bit by bit, chunk by chunk, edge by edge, until I get to the heart of the story. And then I go into potter mode and basically smoosh the whole thing back down on the wheel and then gently pull it back up from a lump until it forms into the vessel I envisioned.
It’s a messy process.
So. Anyway. About that heads-up in the title. Yeah … my website might disappear and reappear without warning sometime soon. I am going to attempt to upgrade it to the responsive theme I purchased back in November of last year. Life has finally started settling down into a (more) predictable rhythm, so I’m going to give it a shot.
And that’s it.
(Oh, and by the way. If you aren’t following me on Twitter or Instagram, now is a great time to begin. I keep those two social media accounts pretty up-to-date. On Twitter, I talk about books and reading and writing and geeking. Or I fangirl over favorite stories, characters, and actors. I’ve recently learned the art of the GIF tweet. Fun times! Over on Instagram, I am an active part of the #bookstagram community and post pretty pictures of books, bags, journals, and coffee. You know, the essentials of reader and writer life. Click here to follow me on Twitter and here to follow on Instagram. Say hey and introduce yourself, if you’re up to it. I always love hearing from my people … the bibliophiles.)
