A really brief update to say that things in my life are not going anywhere close to the way I would like them to at the moment. I wrote THIS POST recently detailing some of the difficulties I was having. I had hoped that by now things would have ironed themselves out, but that has not turned out to be the case.
As such, I am finding the stress too great to deal with, alongside my writing and drawing. Something’s got to give, and unfortunately, it has to be all the fun stuff. I can’t draw pleasure from it at the moment, and thinking about all the things I haven’t done here is just making things worse.
Here’s what’s going to happen:
Road to a Comic
I had been enjoying working towards a comic version of one of my short stories. This fella here is my most recent effort of maybe a couple of days ago.
I do not intend to give up on this goal and will do my best to keep my eye in with drawing regularly. If any of you are interested in keeping abreast of my progress, I will post updates of my efforts to Instagram, @authorsteveboseley.
I am part way through the serialisation of my short horror story, The Photograph. If you have been following along, fear not, I intend to finish this story off. Who knows, by the last episode, maybe my life will be clearer.
I have a couple of short stories almost complete, and I’m at 71K words into my first novel, Parklife. I will continue editing that as and when I get space in my head to do so. I’m not looking to give up the writing, I’m just struggling to be in the right frame of mind to do it.
Blogging will go dark for a while, save for the updates to Serial Saturday.
I was looking forward to the inaugural edition of this fun newspaper next week, but that too, will have to be pushed back. I’m gutted. My intention is to resurrect it (can I resurrect something that hasn’t been born yet?) at some point in the near future.
If my WordPress app informs me, I will endeavour to reply to any comments. I’m thoroughly sick to be stepping away, but I can’t see another option at the moment.
Hopefully, we’ll speak soon. 😦
