I confess to being a bit unsympathetic when people complain about being bored. It isn’t that I’ve never experienced the phenomena, but more often I find myself with too many things I want to do and not enough time to do them all. There are so many great things to do, experience, and enjoy.
One of the things I am most passionate about (after family) is storytelling. I love to consume stories—as books, TV, movies—but I also love to write my own. When I look back over the last year, my biggest regret is that I didn’t spend more time writing my own fiction. I want to do more writing more than almost anything, but to do that I’ll have to cut back on other things I enjoy. It is all about making tough choices.
I love the blog and the people who visit here, but for the next little while I’ll be giving the blog a rest. I don’t want to set a time limit, because I’m cutting back on a lot of things and I may find I’ve cut back too much. I may come back to the blog sooner or more often than I expect. So, I hope we will be able to reconnect when I’m feeling more satisfied with the amount of writing I’m getting done. Until then, enjoy life, drop me a line through the contact from if you want to get in touch, and if you’re wondering where I am…
I’ll be writing.
