I live by my city’s high school. This morning, I heard cars and kids making their way to their first day of the 2013-2014 school year.
Most years, I’m getting ready to head back myself. I teach middle school writing at the school my church runs. I stop in a couple hours a week, assign essays and short stories, and generally wear out my red pen.
This year, however, for a variety of reasons, I’m taking a sabbatical. I plan to use my streamlined schedule to do more writing. Particularly, to finish up some projects that have been left untouched for too long.
I have two short stories coming out soon. I’ll keep promoting The Unremarkable Squire. I’ll probably have flash fictions pop out here and there, because that’s how they work. And the big project is…
Well, perhaps I shouldn’t even mention what the big project is. Because I’ve claimed I was going to work on it numerous times, and I have a habit of getting sidetracked. You can only cry wolf so often before people get skeptical. My long-time readers know what I mean. They’ve been waiting for it a long, long time.
So, if you know what I mean, bug me.
If you don’t, well, I’ll tell you more once I’ve actually immersed myself back in that world.
