Adios, Amigos!

March 31, 2019

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve been gone for a while. You probably haven’t, though, which is understandable. And that’s what I’m here to talk about.

I think I’m done blogging. I’ve been posting few and far between, and let’s face it, when I do post something, it’s not like it’s anything spectacular. I mostly complain about not getting published, and the random bullcrap that I deal with surrounding it.

Lately, I haven’t been writing. I’ve been working on a different project, so at least my creative juices are flowing. But fiction writing? Not in the cards, at least for the foreseeable future.

For the past week I’ve been keeping a mental tally of reasons why I’m upset and jaded about my lack of success in writing, but if I posted it here, would it matter? Maybe I’m not good enough, maybe editors just don’t know what they’re doing, or maybe they truly aren’t reading the stories and instead judging me personally. I don’t know. I don’t care. For now, I’m not worrying about it.

Some day, though. Some day soon I will, and I’ll start subbing stories again, editing, writing, and giving a shit. For now, however, I have other things on my plate. Things that might actually matter.

If I don’t ever post here again, thanks to all of you. It warms my heart that people cared enough to leave comments, like posts, and even click that button to follow this blog. I wish you all the best of luck, and who knows? Maybe someday you’ll see your name in the acknowledgements section of my novel when you pull it off the shelves of your local independent bookseller.
