Just a quick post to occupy the front page of this blog for a while, and to let subscribers and Twitter friends know that I am stepping back from the blogging/tweeting keyboard for a while (not forever, just for a while) to pursue a personal creative dream… Yesterday, I started a novel! Compiling cookbooks, publishing the work of others,advancing the New Evangelization, and preaching the Vegan Gospel are all worthy pursuits to which I remain fully committed. But I’ve wanted to be a novelist since I was 10 years old, I majored in Creative Writing in college many years ago, and it’s about high time I got serious and focused my undivided attention on creating something great. How long will it take – a month? A Year? I honestly don’t know. But I do know for sure that if I try to keep all the balls I am juggling in the air while pursuing this project, it won’t get done, plain and simple. Something’s gotta go. My day job is non-negotiable, since it pays the bills, so that leaves blogging. And tweeting. I’m sure I will periodically check in with a progress report or to share a newly discovered musician, author, or irresistible recipe, but for the time being, I am backing off the daily free Kindle eBook post, and from Twitter. Wish me luck!
