Hello! I have missed you. Although I think about you every day, I have not had the opportunity to spend the quality time with you that we both have become accustomed to. There is no excuse, but the reality is that I have expanded my writing platform to include novels. I have several that I have been working on and I know that I said that I would have it in your hands by February. I know, I know. The thing about it is that I wanted it to be right, so I had to spend a little more time with it then I anticipated. You will be pleased to know that my novel “The Journals” will be released on June 1.
I want to thank my blog audience for helping me to grow into the writer that I am becoming. I write the stories that I want to read, and I hope that you want to read them too.
I am learning to balance my writing so that nothing goes unattended. I hope that you will stay with me on my journey of growth and know that I will never leave my blog and that I will be back, no matter what.
I have a list of things that I will be writing about. You will find a different tone to the blog because I have grown both as a writer and as a person. So many times I want to write about something on the blog, but I am hesitant because I don’t want to offend anyone. I am past that, over that, above that, bigger than that. I have stretched my box into a rectangle and my rectangle into an octagon, and I am working to erase the lines altogether.
I have heard “NO.” so many times in the past year that I just laugh when I hear it now. My skin has grown thicker, and my heart has grown stronger, and my determination has grown deeper. People may take your kindness for a weakness, but that is their issue. I know that now. People may laugh at what they consider to be your failures, but you have to get up anyway, dust yourself off and keep on going. Leave them there laughing. That is their issue. People may never offer you a hand or a kind word and only hang around to see your demise, but again, that is their issue. I understand. I really understand, and it is all alright.
Grow with me. Explore with me, and let’s see where the road will take us. I think that we will both be pleasantly surprised.
