Mikey's Gettin' the Itch!
Has it really been over a year since I've posted? And over a year and a half since I posted anything interesting?
Anyhow, to steal a catchphrase from Mike & Mike, I'm back and better than ever! At least I think I am. But my writing skills are a little rusty so it'll probably take me a few weeks to get back into that smooth-flowing easy-reading style that brings all the readers to the yard.
What brought this on, you ask? Well, even though life in Tennessee isn't nearly as interesting as life in Las Vegas was, I've definitely got a little more structure in my daily routine, and I found myself getting bored. And when the weather is bad it seems that I waste too much time facebooking and playing hearts just to kill time. You know that'll turn the brain to mush, so I've decided to take the drastic step of getting back in the blogging game.
Besides, I've been talking to Linda Lou a bit lately and she's been subtly cracking the whip at me to get back to the keyboard. I've got another project on the horizon, which I'll talk about in great length as we go on, but she's offered her assistance since she's 'been there, done that' already. Yes, I shall be writing a book eventually, but it's a looooong way off. Right now I've just got a concept and a very very rough and preliminary outline. But it's coming. And the best way to make sure it happens is to turn on the peer pressure to finish by announcing to the world that Yes, I Will Do This.
In the meantime, I've recently joined up a couple of local Meetup groups dedicated to non-fiction writing, kinda like the Henderson Writers Group, just with less wizards and vampires. I haven't been to any of the meetings yet, but I'm definitely on the email list.
Anyhow, that's the news. Spread the word. Mikey is back!
