Ok, it’s official. The web novel will be going online in mid-January, drawing on the writing done during NaNoWriMo. Everything else I’ve been doing is going away.
Simplification is a wonderful thing. A colleague of mine is taking a class on Voluntary Simplicity, and I find myself in part taking the example in time with a number of other personal revelations including not insignificantly the idea that I’m worth more than I’ve been taking advantage of. It’s a fairly big concept, but it’s worth considering.
So I’m getting rid of a lot of stuff. Web sites, projects that have been slowing and halting, I’m even clearing out my morgue file – I’ve eliminated more than three gigabytes of images and text files already which are duplicated elsewhere.
I’m also going to try and be a bit more directed with this blog. After seven years, it has to have some kind of point, right? Later this week or early next week, inspired by the World’s Strongest Librarian, I’m going to post a series on How To Have Asthma – I had an attack recently on a scale I haven’t seen in 20 years, so it’s helped with this reset of priorities.
So in some areas, expect more activity from me. In others, expect less. I’m still hashing out part of which will be which, but it’s progress.
