With the end of the year rapidly approaching, it seems like the fates are conspiring to make sure I don’t have too much extra time on my hands in the next 365 days, even before they’ve begun. Whereas this year has been running out on a rather quiet note, peaceful and relaxing, with plenty of time to just laze around and contemplate the ever-changing universe, it seems that 2015 is just not going to be putting up with any of that sort of nonsense. No sir.
To start with, and it really is a welcome feeling, it seems the steadier type of writing (read novel-length) that I like to do has started flowing at a decent enough pace that my Blogging, which has also been flowing in the absence of much other writing, is apparently going to have to take some cutting back. That’s probably a good thing for me, because I’ve been wanting to get back to this full-length writing for some time now, and it’s certainly a good thing for you guys, since it will give you all that extra time for reading really interesting Blogs. Lol. But it’s not only the writing that is serving to scrunch my time up. Oh no.
As I’m sure many of you yourselves are, I’m a rather voracious reader, when I can find something that is really worth investing my time in. Although there are literally millions of books out there to choose from, the last few months of this current year found me in one of those strange periods where nothing at all that I looked at could manage to catch my interest. Then all of a sudden, wham, bam, thank-you mamn, here I am looking at not one or two, but three full-length reads that I suddenly want to get through, with at least one of them dove-tailing in with the writing I’m doing. And since I use the public library for most of my reading needs three weeks can become a rather tight schedule to finish three books when the first one is called “The Mind And The Brain – Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force” and contains 375 pages without the notes. (Actually, from what I’ve read so far, it should be a pretty quick and interesting read.)
But anyway, I guess when I think about it, it’s all good. Getting back to the longer writing was the main reason for starting the Blog in the first place, to get myself back into the habit of daily writing. I’ve stayed with it even since I’ve started writing again because you guys/gals have made me feel so welcome here. That’s a pretty heady experience for someone with my kind of history, and not something I’m willing to just give up completely. But like I said, I will have to cut back, and I’ve even explained a little bit more about why inside the article that will be Part 2 of my submission for the “Tour Through Blogland Award”, which I’m scheduled to publish on December 29th.
So anyway, that’s about that for tonight, I’ve got a book over there that wants to explain to me how I’ve got a plastic brain and whether my brain is on the light or dark side of the force (at least I think that’s what it’s all about). I’ll be sure to let you know. See you next time. Stay healthy, and safe, and keep on writing. I’ll read you later.
