Long Time No Write

It's been way too long since I've written on this blog. So much so that it's probably dead in the water. To be completely honest, I need to work on getting my focus back on writing. I've been doing it in short spurts and changing focus like crazy.

First of all, after a lot of thought and consideration, I've decided to go ahead and self publish Isis. It's going to be done under a pen name, and I'm still pursuing major publication with Lexy and other novels I have in the works. The truth is that I never thought that I would be someone who would self publish, and I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. But at the same time once I made the decision, it felt totally and completely like the right thing to do with my story. I've revised it so many times, and I'm getting good feedback from critiques and writer friends. I'm starting a blog (My first post will be today) about my publishing journey, and every step I'm taking to promote and get the book out there.

Fortunately I have an uber talented hubby who takes photos and has been paid for his graphic design skills. And he's likely going to put together a trailer for me.So that part will be good. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the story, and how well it is received.

Onto general writing stuff. I mentioned that I've been changing focus lately. I've been really inspired to go back and look over my old ideas and I love so many of them, and I totally think that I could develop them. It's got me excited to finish up Lexy so I can work on the next project.

Finally my goal for this blog is to do one post a week on writing in general and then a Friday Five. I think I can manage that.

Hope you all are doing well. Let me know what ideas are exciting to you right now!
