Hey all! I know I’ve been so wrapped up in my capstone, I’m letting other things fall by the wayside. I haven’t submitted much lately. I’ve barely written anything lately. I haven’t worked on my new novel at all in the past few months. I have a flash fiction collection about 1/2 done – this will be my third flash collection. My second, The Price of Cookies, will be released by Off Topic Publishing in the summer of 2023.
But I have to admit I haven’t been writing as much as I want. I worry sometimes that I’ll lose it, that creativity is something that needs to be practiced and I’ll forget how to do it if I take too long of a break.
But today, I got to finally hold a copy of my new novella-in-flash in my hands. And people have been messaging me and tagging me on Twitter and Facebook to tell me how much they love Arthur, the main character in The Clothes Make the Man. And I remember why I love this, why even when it pains me, or I worry about it, or I’m having horrific imposter syndrome, I still find some time to write. Because bringing alive a character who touches people makes me happy.
I’m going to make more time to write in the coming weeks. As we move into winter hibernation, I need to keep doing things that make me happy.
