Shame on me. I was not writing. Instead of writing, I was posting stuff on this blog.
You have to balance your activities.
You can't spend all your time building your writer's platform if it means you aren't writing. Mindful of this, I put my head down and started writing with no regard to anything in the world, or sharing anything with you all.
My wife, bless her, gave me space to write and I just finished a short story that I'm a little proud of: Ghost Light. We'll see if it sells.
And you can't spend all your time reading my blog instead of writing. So, get to work.
