Enter 2016 – A Writer’s Update

oenIt’s a new year…again. I apologize for not writing so much recently, but man it’s been busy. That and I haven’t been sure what to write. I mean, I haven’t been able to write at all of late, so that’s been a bummer. But fear not, last week I pushed myself to write a whole 1,000 words! Not much, I know, but I’m hoping it evolves into more.

For those who missed it and care to know, I’m rewriting The Siren’s Lyric…again. I’ve spent quite some time studying how to write novels (something I think most aspiring authors don’t bother to do) and have learned some things. I’m excited to try out these lessons.

Other than that, I’m excited about the casting of Idris Elba in the Dark Tower movie (my all-time favorite book series…and has been since the early ’90s when I happened upon the first book at the ripe age of 13 or so). I’m truly bummed that Netflix doesn’t have more episodes of Gotham or Blacklist. I’m grumbling that, with three little ones, I don’t have the opportunity to watch all the great movies that have come out the last year or two. (Still haven’t seen Star Wars and probably won’t for some time). I’m planning my extended family’s reunion for 2017 (we’re at 100+ people so far). Work has been piling on. And life has just continued to happen.

Here’s hoping you’re enjoying your 2016 is looking good so far. I’m hoping to dive back into this world of writing and blogging, so stay tuned.
