old habits and new

November 5, 2021

You might have noticed that blogging has become harder and harder for me this past year. Two years ago I was on a pretty regular schedule of posting three times a week . It dropped to two, and now I’m managing about one. I think a big part of that is the pandemic, having not much going on, all the old patterns disrupted, and as a result feeling like there’s just nothing much to write about. Feeling caught in a rut is making it hard to get motivated. Writing fiction is always my first priority, which probably won’t come as a surprise. If it’s a choice between writing fiction or the blog, fiction wins every time. (The result of this choice is new novellas like FATAL STORM and CHARMED WATERS, and a slew of short stories on the horizon. Hooray!)

I know I’m not the only one who’s realizing I’ve developed a new set of habits during the pandemic, and am now thinking about how to get out of them. Or, better — what new habits to develop to replace them. Big thoughts, there.

This is just to say I’m working on some plans and ideas, and blogging is going to be a part of that but it’s probably going to look different than this. I’ve been blogging here, like this, for about 15 years now, so it’s high time for a change. I’ll let you know what I come up with.

Thank you for sticking with me. I really appreciate it.

  2. Old habits die hard,they say. Do you know BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits website and book? It was a revelation for me. Good luck.
