Beginnings and Endings and the stuff in the middle

Well, I've done it, again. Created an ending, which always leads to a new beginning.

I've been employed for the past eleven years and just this past week I turned in my resignation. Time to move on to something new.

I'm hoping that this new beginning will lead to much more time spent with family and much more time spent right here in front of my computer writing.

As with most writers, I'm always concerned with the stuff in the middle. I know the beginning and I know the end, but that middle ground sometimes seems like a huge desert that has to be crossed.

I just hope that my muse will be able to stick with me on the journey.

Recently, I learned that a short novel I wrote on a whim for NaNoWriMo will be published sometime later this year. This is very exciting for me and I'll post here as things happen, and I'll be posting a link to all the sites that have to do with that.

You might want to check out some of my other writing that just recently saw print too. There's a little book of short stories on called Split that I'm very proud of. This anthology is the culmination of months of hard work by my writer's group - Humble Fiction Cafe.

We pushed and prodded each other along and what we came up with is a wonderful collection of our best work (so far). I'm looking forward to much more collaboration with all my friends there and the creation of more and better writing.

Signing off now and hoping my Muse will show up as I have a project that needs work.
