I've been thinking about writing this post for days. Weeks. Maybe months. I've put it off because I needed to get my focus back on writing, I needed to keep my focus on getting back to basics (which I blogged about earlier this year).
I don't know how "back to basics" I've gotten, but here's what I've been up to:
1.) I joined a writer's group. The East Tennessee Creative Writers Alliance was formed when the Smoky Mountain chapter of the Romance Writers of America disbanded, and it works in some unconventional but totally amazing ways. I can't even begin to express how valuable this group has been to me, or how much I admire the various members.
2.) I've been trying to be more active on social media, and by that I mean more personal. I'm currently on several different sites (facebook, twitter, google+, tsu.co, and instagram), and I'm hoping to become more active on my youtube channel in coming weeks, too. I may not be posting cover reveals and book releases just yet, but I am still around, I am still interacting with my readers, and ...
3.) I'm finally writing more regularly again! I'm currently working actively on seven different projects, mentioned here in no particular order: More Than Friends (contemporary romance, Kingsley Series, book four), Selkie II (fantasy romance, Selkie Trilogy, book two), Still Fighting For Freedom (chick lit romance, Freedom Series, book two), a horror story, a dystopian adventure, and two different non-fiction efforts to remain mostly secret for the moment. I don't know which of these books will release first, as I'm just rotating through them at the moment and working on whichever project happens to be working the best. But what matters to me is, I'm writing. I've been implementing some new methods that seem to really keep my creative juices flowing, and I couldn't be more thrilled.
So, that's what's going on with me. What's been going on with you?
