I used to have what I nicknamed “submissions block.” I wrote, but I had a near phobia about submitting my work to editors or letting readers see it. To help deal with that problem I started this blog back in the fall of 2008.
And over time, this blog helped me deal with that borderline phobia and move past it. I began to submit my work to editors, and let readers see it. I’ve also been getting feedback behind the scenes these past few months from some of the best editors in my genre. As a result of all this work, what I need from this blog is changing.
I’m getting very close to being published.
So the focus and format of this blog will change over the next six months. I will continue to try to post on Sundays, but the topics will probably expand beyond writing subjects. The appearance of the website will also change.
I’ve really appreciated the emails I’ve received offline from readers of this website this past year.
Tiny changes over time can change a life beyond recognition. I am no longer the writer I was back in 2008–I’ve come a long way since then. I still have a long way to go, but I’m unstuck and moving faster and faster each month.
