Reveries, Reflections, and Ruminations
Good morning friends and fans! It's a beautiful, albeit chilly, morning and I'm looking forward to getting this weekend off and running. As most of you are aware, my blogs posts are fewer and farther between. (For more information on that for those of you who aren't aware, click here.)
I've been preoccupied writing a style that is different from what I do with H.A. Larson, and it's exciting and fresh for me. I'm hard at work writing various things and it's keeping me energized. "The Box" is always in the back of my mind, and someday I will write the quintessential horror novel...just not anytime soon.
I've also had a few life changes happen as well since I made that announcement over a month ago. I started a new job that I'm absolutely in love with. I am at a University now working regular hours. It's really refreshing to be home every night with my family, and to share the weekends with my children. I'm very fortunate and thankful to have moved up! It's been a bit of an adjustment, however, going from working a graveyard shift to getting up at 5 a.m. during the weekdays. The first week found me really tired at work in the afternoon, and being ready for bed as soon as I got home. The second week was much better and I'm feeling more productive now in the evenings.
Another wonderful thing about my new job is that it's 9/10 of a mile from my house so, unless the weather is crappy, I've been walking back and forth from work everyday. I've also been walking at least one of the weekend days and because of all this, I'm averaging a three-mile walk five or six days a week. I had gained about five pounds towards the end of winter, and I'm happy to report that all my walking help me shed that and a few more pounds. I'm right back to my 75 lbs lost!
I have another announcement to share with you all, and that's that I'm now under the Horrendum Media umbrella. It's a small, burgeoning media company that is unofficial for now and will have a couple of writers (including yours truly), a cinematographer/reviewer, and possibly more later on. I'll keep you all updated on that as time goes on. Anyway, if you see the Horrendum Media logo attached to my stuff, you will know why!
I hope this post finds all of you well.
