I'm back

It's been nearly three months since my last post. (If I had started that with "Bless me father" this would sound like a confession.) But my absence has not been without reason.

After nearly five months of mistakes (not mine), delays (not mine) and doubts (mine), I'm now in my new digs and ready to get back to some kind of life.

The good part of what's happened is that it happened; it's over. Like all of life, it's filed in the past, an event that doesn't actually exist anymore except to be pulled out of its filing cabinet and used as a lesson. Everything, after all, is a lesson, a test of sorts; whether we pass or not depends on how much we pay attention.

Fortunately, nothing interrupted my writing. I've managed to do the final rewrite on my third novel (and add substantial sections to numbers four and five) and have just a few adjustments to make before converting it to ebook format, which, barring any additional arduous lessons, should be ready for publication next months.
