First of all I would like to apologize for the incredibly long hiatus, certain things in life are unavoidable, like Mack trucks and old age. For me it was my ability to turn thoughts into words, I guess it just left me for a while, sort of took a vacation to the Bahamas without me. Talk about writer's block, I had writer's Great Wall. Just the thought of trying to sit down and work on something made me ill, that's how it goes sometimes I guess. I think for me it was the feeling that I was getting really close to something momentous, but in the back of my mind I had convinced myself that something like that couldn't possibly happen so why even try, a fear of failure perhaps. Who knows for sure.
I may not have written much over the last year or so, but I did read quite a lot of books, reading those books eventually produced the help I needed. Sometimes you find inspiration right where you expect to find it, I found mine in between the pages of a book from an old friend of mine, Mr. Stephen King, the Eminent sage and writer junkie! 'Bag of Bones' provided me with a sense of determination to plunder ahead, just when you think all is lost something can spark the old noodle back into action. I'm happy to report that mine is picking up speed again, and I'm ready to limber up my fingers and hit the old Selectric once more!
We'll talk again soon!..........Jeff
