I Have Returned

I Have Returned

Nearly ten months have passed since I wrote something for the blog. I never intended for that to happen but days and weeks and eventually months have gone by while I focused my attention elsewhere. 

A year and a half ago I decided that I’d like to write a historical fantasy novel. That first book has been completed and I am seeking an agent for it. Wish me luck. During the writing of my book, it became apparent to me that I had more than one character with something to say. As a result, I’ve committed myself to a trilogy and have begun to write book two. 

It would be easy to set aside my blog at this point but I am loath to do it. I find that the blog provides me with meaningful opportunities. It gives me a valid reason to get in the car and explore Texas, it offers photography opportunities, and it allows me to write something different. Something that doesn’t take a year to complete.

Though I haven’t written any stories for the blog during these ten months, it hasn’t stopped me from visiting some special places. I have plenty of pictures to show for it. I just need to take the time to add a few words. 

So if you’ve taken the time to check in on the blog from time to time, I hope you’ll continue to do so.
