After two and a half years, it seems I'm finally back at the keyboard. And I've returned with Episode V of The Fourth Dimension: Outcry, my online webseries!
I'm truly sorry it took so long to get back into the groove. Creativity can be a fickle thing, and I really wore myself out with non-stop promoting, blogging, interviewing, and other tasks meant to increase my online presence. I'm done with that stuff, now. I love writing, I love creating, and I love adventuring in the insanity of my imagination. But the task of promoting made it feel like a job. I had placed expectations on myself that were extremely difficult to meet while also working a full-time job. Other authors do it, and I commend them for it, but I can't keep up with it anymore.
So I'm going back to the schedule that works for me: I'll write as much as I want about what I want whenever I want. If I feel like all I have in me is one paragraph, that's what I'll write. If I have twenty pages of material ready to go in my head, that's what I'll write. No blog schedules. No more word counts. No more page expectations. Just pure and free creativity.
I'll continue posting here from time to time to try to give you updates regarding future projects. With Episode V of Outcry finished, I've already begun work on Episode VI. I don't know how many episodes there will be, but I know where I want to take the story. I hope to finish it this year so that I can move on to Volume IV of The Fourth Dimension next year. But I'm not holding myself to timetables anymore, so whenever it happens, it happens. I'm just glad to be writing again at all, because for a while I felt like I'd never get my mojo back!
Oh, and I intend to eventually update the look/presentation of all my websites, but again, I'm in no rush.
I hope you enjoy Episode V. Feel free to leave feedback either here or on the Outcry official page. Either way, thank you again for being so patient with me. I'm back now, and I plan to be here to stay!
I hope your 2015 has gotten off to a great start!
