Some good news: my company hired me a few weeks ago to take over for the coordinator of our landscape division. I’ve been on the job for the last two weeks, and it’s been a blast, even the hectic parts.
Some bad news: I’m in a transitional phase right now as I shift out of my old position into the new one. Most of the time lately, I’ve been trying to adjust my mind from working in one environment to working in another, from an environment that feels very impromptu to one in which I have more control over my tasks and can delegate a little more easily.
None of this has affected my writing. In fact, it’s helped it. I get to the office an hour before I need to in order to beat the traffic, and with that hour, I try getting as much writing done as I can. But it has meant that I haven’t had as much time to devote to blogging as I’d like to, and although blogging isn’t my primary literary focus, it is a part of this website that I try to nourish periodically.
The problem with blogging isn’t just a matter of being crunched for time. Lately, I’ve felt as if I have nothing new to report on, no pearls of literary wisdom to pass along. Then again, maybe I’m not keeping my eyes open enough to new topics.
Anyways, in the meantime, I’m really just trying to get through this shift at work, which means that’s the priority for me over the next few months. If the blog has to suffer for that, then so be it. I’ll write on here when I can. Hopefully, by the end of summer, I’ll come back with a vengeance and a whole lot of new observations about writing.
Thank you all for being a little patient with me.
