Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I have posted anything on here, been pretty busy with this, that and life in general. So let’s get started shall we?
I know that some of you out there know how hard it can be to work on a story that you’d like to get published, while at the same time raising a child. It can be pretty difficult at times. For me, like it says on my on Twitter account, being a Dad is a full time job. My son comes before all else.
But what about when he’s asleep?
Well… I have free time then to do what ever I want. But when it comes to writing, times seems to just fly by when I delve into one of my stories and next thing I know it’s in the wee hours of the morning. Going to bed to sleep with an active mind does not induce sleep at all, let me tell you.
So I’ve been thinking on how I can continue writing while at the same time, being there for my son. And the answer I have come up with is to put my writing stand by as it were, until such time that I can focus on my writing like I want and not neglect my duties as a Father. I will still continue to come up and work on the outlines for my various stories I have planned, so when the time comes, I can more easily get them done and out to you, the readers.
I am thankful for those of you who enjoyed my writing so far. Paulie, for me was at the time it was published, a test run, to see how the indie writing game worked. I walked into this blind at the time of uploading Paulie to Amazon, but quickly picked up on some things. As copies started to sell, I got hyped up about that, and in turn, forgot about it being a test run. Which is why I published a short story and not a full length novel. Better to see what people out there thought of my story telling, via a short story than to spend a longer amount of time working on a full length novel only to find out that everyone hated it.
Anyhow, with that being said, I will still be on the social sites, checking in every once in a while to see how things are going. And as for Paulie 2, have no fears. It will come. Until then, I will continue working on my ideas and outlines, and will update you all when I start again into my writing fully.
Till next time
