Running on Empty
I haven't been ignoring y'all. I promise. I have realized my issue is has to do with what Anne Lamott says about writers block in Bird by Bird: "The word block suggest that you are constipated or stuck when the truth is that you're empty."
That's how I've been feeling--empty. Tired. I haven't been writing because I haven't had anything in me to write. I'm trying to take a little time off. Read. Relax. Try to fill up again.
In the mean time, there's been a bit of a blog tour going on in honor of the release of Seeking Unseen. There are mini-interviews, longer interviews, story excerpts and other features.
You can check out all the bits and pieces at the following blogs of my fellow Splashdown Books authors:
Keven Newsome: The Glowing Butterfly
Grace Bridges: Kalek the Rocker Elf
R.L. Copple: Writing experience
Travis Perry: Where Science and Magic Collide
Paul Baines: Cover Art
Caprice Hokstad: The writing process
Greg Mitchell: Longer interview, horror writing
Robynn Tolbert: Character Interview with Angel
Frank Creed: Writing fantasy
Fred Warren: Writing fantasy and horror
And finally a non-Splashdown Books blogger, Kessie Carroll: Interview about Seeking Unseen (Check out her artwork while you're there!)
PS--if you didn't notice the big Goodreads thing over there in the upper right, check it out. I'm doing a giveaway of two print copies of Seeking Unseen. Just click to enter! And please tell anyone and everyone :).
