It's alive!

I haven’t updated this blog for…well…a really long time. That’s going to change now. At long last, after a lot of planning, saving, and soul-searching, I’m embarking on a new adventure as a full-time writer and editor (and marketer/promoter, because as a self-published author, that kind of goes with the territory).

My first day went well–hit my word quota and then some, got a little work done around the house, and sorted out some plans for what I need to work on. Since I’m most creative first thing in the morning, I plan to get the writing quota out of the way first thing each morning (I’m shooting for 3,000 words, give or take) and then move on to marketing, social media, etc. in the afternoon, as well as starting a regular exercise plan (because I am a couch potato and I don’t want to be anymore) and getting some stuff done around the house (because this place is full of clutter, most of it’s mine, and I need to do something about it).

I’m really excited about this. I feel like I’m finally living my dream, doing the thing I love as a job. I’m going to shoot for updating the blog at least once a week, to talk about writing, life in general, TV/movies/music/books, and whatever else pops into my head at the time. Hopefully that will include things like book reviews (I need to take the time to read more, both in and out of my genre and both indie and trad-pubbed novels.

Anyway, baby steps. I’ll try to make the updates a bit more ambitious going forward, but aside from trying really ┬áhard to update at least once a week, no promises.

If anybody’s still checking in on this thing, welcome back!
