Long Time No Post

I've been telling myself for a long time that I need to blog more. I really do want to blog more, but there is always something else to do. I know that sounds like an excuse, and maybe on some level it is, but I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day. Between trying to spend some time with my family, work, writing, and every once in a while squeezing in some sleep...I'm beat! But I have decided that I am going to get around to blogging more often.

In the past I have used this blog for flash fiction and writing prompts. I miss those, and you might be seeing some more of them. They are fun. They are a great way to practice the craft of writing as well as a nice break from my WIP's. But I also want to do more personal blog posts. I have done a lot of thinking about what I want to post about. I've thought about doing posts on craft, posts on self-publishing, posts on marketing yourself and your work...but that's all been done before. Now I'm not saying you'll never see those types of posts here. There's a good chance you will. But what I really want to do is just write.

So this post is nothing more than a motivator. A promise to myself. I figure now that I wrote this I would be a liar if I don't keep up with it.

I feel good about this. Let's see where it leads.
