The Writing Bug Strikes At Random

The Writing Bug Strikes me at strange times in my life. I took a bit of a hiatus after self publishing my book to give myself a breather. In that time I have written book reviews and continued to read, read, and read some more. Nothing however, gives you that same feeling as filling up that blank page staring back at you with that blinking cursor.

I actually have several books in the works and my hardest decision right now is deciding which one I want to run with. My first book was something that had lain dormant for years where everything I have written lately is fresh.

I'm even considering dabbling into children's books before this burst of inspiration leaves me again. I just need to decide what to do about any illustrations in the book, because I know my drawing skills would not do the images in my head any justice.

I believe that for now and the foreseeable future I will continue to self publish. I can always look for an agent on the side, but the most important thing to me is getting my material out there. I enjoy writing in my free time so I might as well keep doing it and the self publishing industry has made the process pretty easy for even this beginner to accomplish.

That's my only update for now. Hopefully I will be back shortly with more information about my new book and which idea I chose.
