No posts for a month. I think I just bottomed out in terms of commitment and self-respect as a blogger..
When I took this job in the sandy Middle East, I figured I would be able to finish two books while I was here. I now do not think that will happen; my work hours are much longer and difficult than expected; fourteen hour days, seven days a week are not unusual, leaving me little time or energy for other pursuits.
Okay, so I do have a little positive to report. Steady work on my non-fiction novel effort has proceeded and I managed to peel off a short story last month. Beyond that, it has been a fair desert for authorship, so I need to get back in the groove. Think I have an idea that will help and am going to work on it. (And if anyone cared, I am still well and unharmed.)
Of course, the real payoff comes from action, not talk. As the line goes, "Believe what I do, not what I say."
So I better do.
