I know that it’s been a minute since I’ve done anything here. Lots have been happening behind the scenes these last eight months. Most good but it’s been keeping me busy on the life side of things.
So what’s changed since June 2019?
Well, I have a new job for one.
Throughout most of 2017 to last June, I’ve been working multiple jobs and internships. My head was on a swivel as I jumped from one to another. I’m pretty sure if I look through my output throughout this time, it’ll look very scattershot. Lots in a month or two, nil for two or three others.
I’m now working in a higher position at my local library and it’s a dream! I’m surrounded by books and people who like books. What could be better?
This also means I have a little more downtime than I’ve had these last couple of years which is really nice! No complaints there!
I’ve also suffered the apex of an ongoing identity crisis with this blog.
I’ve been debating what I want this space to be. I’m an avowed overthinker so while I toiled on this question, I found myself stuck idea-wise. I had loads of them but put myself in a tizzy trying to figure out if it should go here. I ultimately decided to just go with the flow on this one.
Again, still an ongoing crisis.
Fiction wise, I’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes. I’m on a writing high. I’ve managed to finish drafts for a couple of projects while sussing out the ideas of others. I’ll go more into detail about those in a separate post but things are coming down the pipe.
A good deal of those will be on a new blog I’m starting called Our Hollow Times. Most of the fiction there will be centered on the town of Hollow Grove. Some of you may already be familiar with that world. For others, it’s a universe I’ve been developing for the last oh…close to four years now. It’s a little out of the way American town filled with ghosts, supernatural creatures and other unfathomable beasts coexisting with a mortal population. It has many story timelines and other stuff that I’ll be far better explained by the people who live there. Their stories will be found on this site when it officially starts rolling next week.
That’s about it for me! I’m going to work to update this more consistently in the future. Blogging is supposed to be fun and I want to go forth in that spirit!
I hope you all have a lovely Monday.
Thanks for reading!
