Has it really been seven months? Wait, let me check again… Yep, that's right. Let's face it, the last time I posted here was all about cherry blossoms and spring and all things beautiful, and now? Well, now the world has moved on, and we have no choice but to move on with it (I know, Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has been on my mind lately). Indeed, the moral compass has reset itself, but we shouldn’t be surprised. It has been the year of lemons, and we all, along with Beyoncé, should have been making lemonade. Tons of it. Seas and oceans of it. But I’m hopeful. This is how I started this year, and for as long as it’s still the case, I have to believe at least one other person out there is feeling that way too. And if that’s you, if you’re that kindred spirit, wherever you are, wave this way.
All right, back to my main point. I do have an excuse for my absence, but do you know what I’m not going to say? That I’ve been busy. It annoys me when people say that. All it means is they’ve been busy with other, more important, things. In my case, I just needed to do some work on my own, without having to talk too much about it. I spent the last few months working on one last redraft of my manuscript and updating the look of this blog. And although the blog is not ready to go online just yet, here's a sneak peek.
