My return to blogging is due to a sort of re-commitment to my writing as a career. It isn’t that I exactly lost focus on it as such, but that I had some shaky years in there and had to immerse myself in fiction writing to survive them. This mode of writing, blogging, while I tried it on occasion, no longer did me any good.
That said, I am back to a place where I can see myself working to advance my writing as a career again. I will be working toward being a hybrid author, some writing will be self published while I seek to traditionally publish novels I have poured my energy and time into the last few years.
There is much change on my horizon and one thing that I know: I need to be a full time writer. So now, every bit of my time and ounce of my energy will be directed to this endeavor.
What all of this means is that I have sought balance. I had to find my feet, my path, anew. And I have. So now it is about going forward.
What does going forward look like?
I am going to be launching a patreon, blogging regularly, posting a web-exclusive novel to my shiny new website and also launching a newsletter. By the end of the year I will have a body of work that I will independently publish, while also seeking traditional publication for different works. There are a few other things in the works as well and I will announce them when they are a little more concrete.
