When I first started this blog, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it. Once I started uploading the “Side Effects” collection, I felt that the time spent at the keyboard was at the very least going to be a beneficial exercise for old skills. I even dared to be hopeful, as I poured over notebooks and began to publish “The Malcontent” collection, that revisiting such a prolific archive of work might reignite my love of writing again. Not to say that I wasn’t writing fresh material; there are other categories in my blog, like “Poetry – Capturing Synaptic Lightning” and “The Shadowy Side of The Street” where I had been sporadically publishing new pieces, but I was not sitting down to write on a regular basis. By the time I was finishing uploading “The Malcontent” to the blog, I was pleased to find that the act of sitting at the keyboard had become something I looked forward to again and composing new work was again richly rewarding!
With all that said, I have been making time to write regularly in recent weeks and there are new pieces coming…. like tomorrow!
The work on prose is coming along, albeit slowly, as I am feeling my way through these stories with my fingers like a blind man reads a face, but there are things to be had there.
Thank you all for reading!
