So writing and editing both took a back seat to some not-writing-life goings on (I used to say ‘real life,’ but it’s all real). Now I’ve emerged from this most recent spate of lifey occupations with new resolve, new ideas and yes, an exciting new project that I can’t wait to tell you about in the coming weeks, but which for now must remain secret.
Hint: my rebranding is related to this marvelous, magical, and oh so lovely secret enterprise.
Most of us content creators and, well, most of us humans in general know the feeling of the whirlwind U-Turn, the sudden branch in the path, or even better, a new path made of shimmering moonbeams that appears on a magical eve to take us to a higher place in life. This project…it’s definitely a moonbeam path. I was talking to my writing bestie Cassandra Chandler about this new road, agonizing about feeling committed to previously planned projects and already-mapped directions. As a good friend will do, she asked the most difficult and simple question: why wait?
I won’t go on about the fleeting nature of life, but I will say, if I’ve been offered a chance to embark upon a journey that fills me with such love, light and joy that I can barely contain it (I am spilling glitter everywhere, it feels like!), why put it on a back burner? Writing is such hard work and inspiration is not something we can count on if we want to make this a professional endeavor and not just a hobby but sometimes, the Muses sing and listening is the only thing to do.
Expect news in the coming couple of months, and thank you for joining me on my moon-path. So, what are your Muses whispering/yelling/singing/signing/interpretive dancing to you these days? ❤
