Well, I could say "business has really picked up," but that would imply I am getting 'paid' for this. Which, as it is right now, I am not... Blogging, that is-- I am currently not getting 'paid' to blog. Of course, if you've read any of my posts-ever- you will know that is NOT what I set out to do in the first place--to make money from this blog.
I set out to give 'the world' a chance to get to know me and my writing style, as interpreted through my rambling thoughts and (what I had hoped would be) my stories.
Life and all of its glorious interruptions continued to keep going... I'm guessing the memo wasn't delivered that said some things were supposed to be put on hold... Like, my husband and mom were not supposed to both get sick within a week of each other, needing my undivided attention--for DAYS... and my niece wasn't supposed to need help moving... and I'd find myself with a social calendar, something I haven't had in over ten years... and I NEVER thought my blogging would get so much attention and I'd suddenly have a plate full of promo posts, book reviews to do, posts to write, recipes and Meal Planning tutorials to do-- on top of feeling disconnected from everything farm-related and with no desire for the holidays-What-so-ever....
But, that's where I have found myself, as of lately.
I do have Rane and Nova's story drafted for Chapter #2, and I must say-- they really surprised me with some of the scenes that played out. I can't wait to finally finish it and send it out...
But first--- there are too many "but firsts."
So many priorities.
I don't call my blog "A Precariously Balanced Life," for nothing!
I've not been a great Fortune Teller, so, I hate to say when to expect Chapter #2 (and what should REALLY be upcoming--Chapter #3), because since around the beginning of October, my life has become far more interesting than I could have ever imagined.
I didn't decide to be an author because I want to be famous or rich. I mean, I'm not going to lie-- if I make a ton of money off of my future books, I will be ecstatic, but in an awestruck & humbled kind of way. Knowing that ANYBODY would want to read & LIKE my books/stories is an AMAZING feeling. THAT"S why I became an author, or more like--why I listened to that inner voice that demanded I finally accept that "label."
I've always had stories and ideas in my head, and I always felt that they wouldn't be there if I wasn't supposed to share them with "the world." So that's where I am. I'm in a humbled place, where people stop by this site to read the words that come out of my mouth/head/fingertips, and I am thankful and encouraged that I have so many of you along during this early part of my journey.
You get to see me grow & fail & rise above it... for that, I am eternally grateful.
Just so you know, I have been busy, we have much to look forward to in the next coming months. More Tentaglian Empire: House of Tentagel will be being released, I have a new Book coming out (hopefully) in March 2017, more Meal Planning/Prep will be taught, more Homesteading Tips & Tricks, more, more, more!!
All I ask, is for your continued support. Just by stopping by and leaving your internet footprints on my site, I feel the love.
As we approach December and a new year, where the future is always uncertain and remains unwritten, I look forward to continued growth & learning, and exploring our world and the worlds we reach in our imaginations.
Thank you for everything.
