So, this is a new year. 2017 and everything. A lot of new things.
Okay, not so many new things. In fact, it’s a lot of the same old, same old. I work, I work more. I don’t get enough time with my loved ones. I try to find the time in my days and weeks to write, to make the videos I have mapped out, to finish the articles and blog posts I have started.
A lot of those things haven’t been getting done. I would like to blame this on a lot of things in my life, but that would only be blame. Responsibility is mine. I haven’t been writing or taking the time to do the things I want to do, and no matter how much I complain or point out the reasons, reason I think are very good, those things still aren’t done.
So, it’s a new year. While I said it’s the same old, same old – it isn’t. In fact, there are so many new and exciting things in my life. I went part time at Bell Ambulance so I could travel and write and spend more time with my wife.
Oh, and I got married on New Years Day, 2016. So it’s been a year of marriage, more than that now. I still don’t get tired of spending time with her, and I don’t think I ever will. When I went part time it was to write more, but all that happened was I spent more time with her. It’s hard to give that up, but its something I need to manage better.
I have two WIP (writer talk for Works In Progress) right now. One is part of the Super City books – moving back in time to the origins of the Super Squad. The other is a non-fiction book on travel. The Super City book has a first draft, the travel book doesn’t but I’m working on it.
There is also this – a complete redesign of my websites in an attempt to get it all together and organized better. I had to learn how to do a lot of it, and some of the things aren’t as smooth as I want them to be (yet), but I think it will be easier to keep everything current and up to-date.
So, now it’s 2017 and I want to make a new start on getting all these things done and covered and move forward with it all. Easy to say, this early in January. I guess time will tell.
