Putting writing on hold

A couple weeks back, I casually threw out there that we're going to sell our house and move.  (That pipe's been fixed, BTW.)  It's a decision that feels more right as more time passes.

I'll write more about the underlying reasons some other time, I'm sure.  But the main takeaway as far as this blog is concerned is that, for the next few months, my writing is going to have to be put on hold.  I only have so much of my attention that I'm able to focus at any one time, and right now it's hard to put myself in the world of my stories.  I can't exactly grab all the details I want when I'm thinking about what I should pack up next, you know?

I don't expect it to be a permanent hold - there's no reason I'd have to shelve all my plans.  I do plan to keep this blog going, for example.  It's just that I'll have to meddle with my current formula of "post something related to my writing every Wednesday," unless I want to have twenty consecutive weeks of, "So, I haven't done much of anything lately...."

Not that meddling with my blog has ever been an issue before.  It's a good thing I don't have a big audience or they'd have sent me so much hate mail for screwing with the format half a dozen times already.

Anyway, the point is, my writing posts are going to go away for a little bit while I put all my focus on getting us and all of our stuff out of the city.  Naturally, I'll probably be blogging about the move instead.  And who knows, maybe I'll have the occasional quiet week here or there where I actually do get some writing done and I can post a worthy update.

In the meantime, please go check out my books on Amazon if you haven't already and keep an eye out both there and here for the release of my next novel, a post-apocalyptic comedy about a dude taking a census of doomsday preppers.  It's looking very unlikely that it'll be out in 2017, but I'd be shocked if I don't get it to market in 2018.  Stay tuned.
