Hello. Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Independence Day for those in the states. Elsewhere, I hope your day was wonderful as well.
You might be wondering about the lack of meaningful updates. A lot has been going on in my personal life and my writing life that I’ve been struggling with on a regular basis. As a result, I need to make some decisions regarding how to move forward with this blog.
I started this as a fun way to promote otherwise unheard of authors or even to discuss my usual interests. I would review short stories every week and novels at the beginning of the month, as well as writing my own stories. I’ve always realized how erratic I’ve been in providing review content. However, this would result in two conundrums that had no easy answer.
- Focus on writing at the expense of reviews.
- Focus on reviews at the expense of writing.
Add my mental health regarding all that’s been going on and you can see why I’ve been slacking. I can’t even assure anything because of how life gets too far in the way for me to maintain constant updates.
As a result, I won’t be maintaining a schedule here. This will be more for news and the occasional topic, but I really wish to promote my stories and produce them at a regular rate.
I will be posting a few topics here and there this month, so I’m not going completely radio silent, but my stories will be a top priority going forward. The blog will be mostly news and “whatever I’d like to discuss at any given moment.” I’ll occasionally talk about what I’ve been reading (my TBR pile is a nightmare), and any contributions I have made.
As far as The Daughter of Dragons, I’m still hard at work on it and might very well get it out this year. As of right now, that will be a higher priority. I might have a preview, and yes, pre-order announcements, down the line. For now, I’ll keep at it now that I apparently have plenty of free time on my hand (until I can find something else for income).
That’s all for today. Take care, and remember, the inn is always open.
