Yes, I have resurfaced. I didn’t go away (as is evident from my still-live blog) but I needed to take a break from blogging for a while – it really was becoming a bit of a burden and for a while there, I didn’t feel like I had anything constructive to offer anyone. All I seemed to be doing was ‘updating’ my ‘writing progress’ – how many times do people want to read about stuff like that? Yes, we all know I write. Thank you and goodnight.
That’s how it felt, anyway.
Even though I spent all this time buried under my little rock, I couldn’t (and didn’t) stop thinking about my blog. I was surprised to see 2 new followers even though I hadn’t updated for nearly 3 months! Now, that was motivating. To be honest, I needed to reevaluate what Poeta Officium meant to me. What did I want to achieve with it? You know, I’m a humble sort. I’m not after fame, fortune, celebrity. I just want to write. And I want to connect with other writers like me – the beginners, the intermediates and the advanced.
So I am back. But I’m not going to promise much for the next month or so. I’ll write when I write. I may do a little cosmetic updating (the black and white theme is a little too sombre). Basically, I’m resurrecting and making this blog the best it can be.
I hope everyone has been well and writing and happy and writing. I will definitely be catching up on your blogs over the next few weeks and I really do look forward to seeing what everyone has been up to.
Ciao for now
Oh, and ps – I finished the first draft of my WIP’s first 6 chapters (these make up the first part of the book). Very happy about that!
