Splendid! Someone who knows how to make a computer sit up and dance could probably fix this with a few keystrokes. I can't. So, while I was grumbling, fuming, and getting ready to take it out on the cat, it occurred to me that, when it comes to writing at least, I'm as manic-depressive as any resident of Bellevue. Generally speaking, my body of work is pretty good, and I have the reviews to prove it, but when it comes to getting that body of work assembled and down on paper, I realized during the course of fighting this problem that I go from "I'm going to write this," to "I can't write that," to "I'll never write again," to "I'm going to write something else" in the space of a week. Not really conducive to presenting myself as an author anyone would want to follow, so I let the old blog go, with all its comments as well as its whinging about "losing the muse," and so on.
Consider this Day One, and hereafter, I shall blog about the productive "good stuff," and leave the indecision for my private moments. For the moment I can say that my next project will be Beyond the Rails III: Slayer of Darkness. l will momentarily be posting the preface to the collection as the fourth tab above, and we'll see where this goes from there.
Right now I can hear a loudly ticking clock telling me of other things I have to do, so I will get that preface up and get on with it. Tuesday I will reprint my review of Sarah Zama's Give in to the Feeling. This was part of a blog tour supporting her new release that I don't want to be lost to a cantankerous blogging site; it's a good book by a good friend, and it will be here, as promised. Following that, I intend to blog every ten days. That will run a couple of days off right at first, but once I retire on May 2nd, I can do what I want whenever I want, and it will be much easier to nail. I can only pray that the site doesn't arbitrarily freeze my material again, but failing that, I'll be around. Let me just get that preface posted, and I'll see you Tuesday. Til then, get out there and live life like you mean it!
