Taking a Break

Hi, folks.

It's been quiet on the blog, a little too quiet, and I think I owe whoever reads this an update.

A friend of mine recently asked me if I've been getting any writing done.  I replied that I was getting a little bit in here and there, but not too much.  And on top of that, I haven't felt very creative lately.  On top of that, job-hunting like a mofo and focusing more on entertainment and production work has taken up more and more time.

So here's the deal...

I'm not quite giving up on writing, but I am putting my foot on the breaks some.  I know I do have a few more Andrew Ursler stories to be released soon through Arts Collide.  I also want to give more brain power to a science fiction project I've wanted to do for years but haven't had as much willpower to give it until recently.

I really wish I had a better explanation, but the bottom line is that I've got to give more priority towards career development at the moment.
