Ah, the life of a writer. First you have great plans for writing a best selling novel. Then you actually try to write said novel and decide one or all of the following:
Once again, I "gave up" on traditional publication and put a third novel on Kindle Direct Publishing. It was one of my favorite novels and I had two agents "love" it but decide they were moving away from representing historical romance. The novel has done surprisingly well and that, combined with a very lovely "fan letter." I received about it have determined me to finish the half-completed sequel (of sorts...it's the heroine's best friend's story. I guess that qualifies as a sequel!).
And I'm determined to get the other medieval and other Regency that are finished and sitting in my computer up and published. They just need another good edit.
In the meantime, I've added yet one more thing to my life. With a fellow writer/creator, I have started a blog (don't you roll your eyes at me!) about living a creative life. Our goal is to share what it takes to make each day a creative expression for the simple reason of enjoying it more! We are working on some retreats to relax, rejuvenate, and inspire attendees to live creatively. It's called Bloom Late and so far, I've been much more attentive to my weekly contributions there than I have been here! Please visit and let me know what you think. In the meantime, know that though this poor blog gets largely ignored by me, I AM still plodding along as a writer!
Great, all I need is one more reason to procrastinate! As if Instagram wasn't enough...
