Nothing New



It has been too long since I've posted anything here. I've been busy working on several things. My focus was on trying to get a job writing for television, but that didn't work out. 

I took the bad news pretty hard. It was very disappointing. It even made me avoid writing for a little bit, but I bounced back and start working on my next novel. 

The novel was planned to have an October release date, but after I put so much time into my TV specs and feeling down after that fell through, I pushed the book back to December. I could have hit the deadline to release it at the end of the year. I just didn't want to rush it. I also didn't want to put something out that my heart wasn't into. 

I've decided NOT to release a book in 2014.

This is the first year, since I started writing, that I will not be putting something out. It's upsetting, but I need more time. I also need more focus. 

I need to completely change my focus. This means taking things back to square one. The only way to do that is to work on new short stories, and by submitting my writing to some lit journals, magazines, and contests again.

This isn't really news to anyone who follows me on social media, but I wanted to post it here too. I'm excited about this change of focus. It should be good for me.
