I’ve been neglecting this blog for way too long, and I’m hoping to change that this fall.
A few updates:
I’ve been doing a ton of screenwriting lately, which means some of my other projects have been neglected. I’m still working on the edits to the fourth and final book in The Steam and Steel Chronicles, which might actually be done before the end of the year. No promises though.
I’m moving! After nearly 12 years living in the same house (the longest I’ve ever lived anywhere, over a third of my lifetime!), I’m moving about 30 minutes away, to a much smaller, more manageable house with more land (2 acres rather than .13!). That move will be happening late this month and early next month, which means you likely won’t be hearing much from me during that time! But the new place should provide me with a lot more opportunities and inspiration to write. I may do a little photo tour of the place when I get all moved.
I have another blog that I started this summer, but that quickly fell by the wayside as other projects took over (including house-hunting). Once I’m moved, I’m definitely going to start that one back up (it’s more lifestyle, less writing-focused). I’ll post here when that happens.
I’m still actively involved with Stowe Story Labs, now helping out by volunteering and taking care of some of the logistics. It’s so rewarding, I’ve met such amazing people, and it’s always inspiring. If you’re a screenwriter, I highly recommend applying next year!
And the big update: I’m currently in the process fo creating a writing course! This one will be about writing a non-fiction book, aimed specifically at professionals who want to write to further their career or business (though it could also be useful to those who want to write about a hobby or passion). It’s a 6-week-long course that I’ll be doing via email, and will be open to a limited number of people (I’m thinking 20 per session, but it might be lower). I’ll post when that’s all up and running (it’s nearly done, I’m just working on some additional materials and then need to decide on the final format).
So that’s what’s been going on in my world! Hopefully everyone out there is having a great summer!
