It's a new year. New year, new ideas, new goals and new approaches.
This whole project has been a learning experience for me. What have I discovered on my journey? I work too hard at some things and not hard enough at others. I try too hard. I don't know exactly how I feel about blogging - it's a bit of a love/hate relationship. And I'm still too stubborn for my own good, but that's me and not likely to change.
I've decided to post when I have something of interest to say, rather than try to come up with something every day. I'm not a journalist, and I've known and accepted that for a number of years now. I think I will leave that to people who love it and and have the talent and skill for it. They have my respect, because it is not an easy task to come up with and write about something of interest every single day.
I will let you know of developments with writing and 'The Mage Sister' as they happen, but as always the process of trying to become a published writer is slow. Right now the book is sitting in a publisher's slush pile, as usual, and I'm taking my dear friend and writing guru, Connie's advice and forgetting about even sending it there. Once I hear something, I will let you know.
It's a brand new world in publishing. It is ever-changing and morphing and moving and it still doesn't quite know what it wants to be, I think. The only options, as I see it, are to either go with it and be appropriately flexible, or dig in your heels and get left behind.
Writing is so much a part of me and has been for such a long time that I don't think the latter is an option. I've always been the kind of girl who believes if a thing can't be done one way, there's always another way.
