I’ve been gone for a while. Admittedly, I’ve been lost, wandering in the wilderness of indecision.
This was due to a number of factors converging and culminating in a perfect storm of fatigue, burnout, and apathy. I’d had enough and needed a break from writing, and I had no idea how long that break would last. To be honest, even just a few weeks ago I was perfectly okay with the idea of never writing and publishing another book in my life.
And then I went to the Writer’s Advance Boot Camp and something changed. I was refreshed, refocused, revived. I was reminded why I write and over night my vision became clear. (I highly recommend this conference for 2014).
I write because I’ve been called to. I truly believe that. And I can’t abandon my calling.
And now I’m making my way back. I’m not ready to dive in yet but that day is on the horizon and near. I have some story ideas; my passion is returning. Slowly, I’m rebuilding and gaining momentum. But this time around I want to do it better. I want to have a plan, a true vision, and want to be focused on what’s important, on things that really matter, on things that will last for eternity.
This is why I do what I do, and this is why I must come back from this trek into the wilderness. I need to because it’s part of who I am, part of who I’m meant to be.
More on this return and rebuilding will come in the near future. I have some exciting things planned, and I hope you’ll join me.
After all, we have work to do, eternal work.
