Over Forty And Loving It


The Constants

Yeesh. Time tends to get away from me, so it does. Truth is, I write so much any more I don't really feel like blogging like I used to, and I miss it. And if I'm to be honest, I don't blog like I used to for a whole lot of other reasons. The GC and I were talking about this just tonight -- when I blogged on a regular basis, before Momma passed, I was pretty naive about a lot of things and didn't really realize how much of myself I put on the page and how it could be turned around by others to be used as a weapon. That has really changed things.

And I'm sad about that, because I miss blogging like I used to.


The reception for Not Nice and Other Understatements has been positive so far, and I've received a couple of offers to do interviews, and looking for some reviews to surface. I have to remind myself it's a marathon, not a sprint, and that the best thing I can do at this point is work on the next project and just keep going. This has become quite a balancing act, because the non-fiction continues to pick up speed, so finding time to work on the fiction endeavors continues to be...difficult.

No, no news on Pallas, and I have no good excuse for that. I do think there will be a lot of shifting around, and an adjustment of the underlying mythology to better set myself up, but I really do have to settle down at some point and finish it off.

The publishing world has and continues to change so much, with many more options now than when I started my writing career it fair makes my head swim. Traditionally publish or self-publish? Indie house or big house? Ebook or print? There are pros and cons to every option, and the more I read the more confused I get. The writers who seem to be making out like bandits are the mid-list writers with a backlist. I'm not a mid-list writer (yet) and I don't have a backlist (yet). So I guess I'd better work on that.

Which brings me right back to the circle of paying work or working on work which may end up being paying work. Heh.


Non-fic-wise, I'm working on a travel project which has taken me across Canada. I feel like I've traveled without even leaving my chair, and that's been fun. Right now, I'd love to visit Vancouver, but if I was to retire (haha) in true hermit writerly style, I'd like to live in the Yukon.

Next up is Australia and NZ, and I can't wait. It's good to love your job.


That's about it. Things are good, and that's good for a change. Keeping in mind change is the only constant, of course. :)
