Looking Back at 2019

How did it get to be December?

Maybe it's because I'm getting to be an old fart, but time is passing way too fast. Now it's December and there are things on my list that have been there way too long.

I only managed to get one book out this year. I was going to say that I wasn't sure why that was, before I took a look at my publication schedule for the past couple of years. I started with my first mystery in 2012 and got 1 or two books out each year until last year.

In 2018, I released 4 books. The previous year I only managed one. Now I think I understand what might have happened. I pushed too hard and my brain needed a break. I'm a slow writer. But I've been slow and steady for awhile now. Last year I got on the treadmill and apparently used up my creative juices. I'd like to get a little faster, but not if it means extra downtime to recharge.

I'm still working on the rewrite for Dilemma. I hope to have that out after the holidays. And I am already brainstorming for the first book in the Children of a Changed World series. I've got a cast of characters and a loose plan of action.

There are several stories waiting to be written. I've got a lot planned. Now I just need to get it all on paper.


  1. Recharging is important! Always keep the quality and don't worry about quantity!
