But now that I am settling back down into a routine I am itching to get back to normalcy. I went for a run the other day for the first time in what felt like forever (it was dangerously close to being forever) and got to ride the other day as well. Now I just have one thing to get back to, writing.
I've been experimenting and trying new forms of social media and I realize how much there is to learn! It makes me feel incredibly old when I heard about new platforms I didn't know existed. Thankfully I have an endlessly patient cousin who refrains from laughing at me when I ask her ridiculous questions. Through my publisher I met a wonderfully helpful fellow soon-to-be-published author named Tonya (you can find her writings over at http://www.tonyaroyston.com/) and she introduced me to figment. You can find my author page there and an excerpt of Four Corners at http://figment.com/books/818238-Four-Corners just keep in mind this is the current edit and will probably change some as it is tweaked through the process.
Figment is an awesome collection of writing, and I find myself torn in even more directions. I have set up my Facebook page for Four Corners, I have a blog, and a Twitter, and I realized today that with all the writing I have been doing lately over all those platforms I am missing something that I should really be doing: actually writing.
Two Worlds sits in piles on my desk and it's at the point now that I try no to directly look at it in the hopes it will edit itself. I need some of Cinderella's mice to come and fill in plot gaps and story lines. This should be much easier than making a dress, so I really don't think it's too much to ask.
But in all seriousness, as with all things in endless attempts at work-life balance, I am now having to add a few more spinning plates to it all, so you may see me a bit more sporadically on all my social media platforms, but do not fear eager reader, it is all for you, darling.
