My dearest kind and gentle readers, I took a break that needed to be taken. Seized by the irresistible urge to write a novel, that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’ve only finished the first draft, but I found that stage to be one that couldn’t be completed while keeping up with everything (or anything) else. The first draft of a novel is demanding to a degree unequaled by any other endeavor I’ve ever undertaken.
A novel’s first draft is a high-maintenance mistress. Not that I’ve gotten any sex out of the bargain. Everyone in my life, as a matter of fact, thinks I’ve fallen off the face of the earth. I’ve been getting annoyed phone messages and emails almost on a daily basis. The general thrust of them all having been “Where the hell are you?!”
Now that I’m back on earth, I should be blogging again regularly. Novel revisions are a lot of work, but the really frenzied part is done. Born on 9-11 should now officially be back in business. I will also be posting on the blog of our GLBT conservative and libertarian group, Out Right Patriots.
There are a lot of things to blog about, because interesting things never stop happening. My WordPress stats tell me that people are still stopping by every day to see if I will post anything new. I promise that this post is only the beginning.
That is, unless aliens abduct me. Or I am again seized with the inspiration for a novel.
