 WOW, I just noticed that I haven’t been on here for almost a year. This is not acceptable but there hasn’t been much happening this year in the writing part of my life. I haven’t written a word for almost a year. This mainly is due to a time issue and having many more commitments. I am not one of these writers that can sit down for twenty minutes every day and write a few hundred words.

Once I start I go on a binge writing period which can last for a few weeks or longer. Due to my other everyday commitments I just can’t seem find the time blocks necessary to set aside for my writing. I also admit that writing hasn’t been the most central thing on my mind for the last year, but I am not worried. I know that one of these days I will open op my “” masterpiece “and off I go again. 

Another issue is finding a publisher. I still haven’t found a publisher I trust so that is also a big issue. Knowing that when I finish my book but I can’t get it to the public sort of puts a damper on everything. Have had so many disappointments with publishers and agents, it has dampened off my enthusiasm for writing. I know that there are thousands of writers out there who write for the love of it.

I am not one of these. I love to write but there is always the vision and plan that when a book is finished it has to be read. I want people to read what I write. I am sure that one day I will find a small publisher who will publish my stuff for a reasonable amount of money but until then it’s just wait and see.

I haven’t been on my blog for ages either but I am setting up a new blog page soon so watch this space for more news on this. My website building and designing is also going along nicely and keeping the sites in the air and updating etc. keeps me pretty busy.

Other than that life just speeds on. I still go to the Reining shows, play a lot of golf and spend loads of time with my little grandson Liam. Life is good. Health wise I am doing ok except just like millions of people my age I wish it didn’t go so bloody fast.  When I was young a year seemed an eternity now it seems that the Christmas tree is hardly out the door and I see them again getting loaded off again at the garden centers.

I intend to try and get on here more often, my intentions are good…
