Musings in the Dark: June 2023



Hey Dilettantes!

Yeah, it's been six months since I last posted. It's been a combination of work busyness, work travel, writer's block and mental distractions. I'm going to be traveling back home to the US in a couple of weeks and it will be nice to be home again. I have no plans to travel anywhere this summer; there's too many things I need to take care of before returning to Senegal in August and I prefer to take care of them stateside.

My writer's block has lasted 3 years. The Muse is not completely asleep; I've been outlining chapters and developing characters and plot details with Noob. Whatever the key is that fits in the ignition and starts the engine...I don't have it yet. I am thankful that I'm using the "down time" wisely; Entropy marks a drastic change in the way I write my novels. I didn't realize it until I started outlining chapters and saw problematic gaps in the timelines and the plot. 

Everything happens for a reason, I guess.

As far as everything else, life is good. I have no complaints. I'm healthy, happy and looking forward to seeing my family. I live a boring, pleasant life and I wouldn't have it any other way.  

Until next time!
