To my faithful readers,
Firstly, I want to apologies for not being in touch last month. By the middle of April, I decided to give up even thinking about getting a letter written and published. With Easter weekend right at the start of the month, then school went on holidays for 2 weeks and I made a quick trip down south to visit family and friends, it made for a busy month. April also entailed some serious house hunting, which I must share, has had a very pleasing outcome.
My husband and I are about to buy our first home. With it has come a lot of decisions, and none of it taken lightly. Our new home will need some work done to it and this excites me and also make me tired just thinking about it!
But, getting back to the letter writing…I was not going to write a letter this month either and let me explain why. I have been writing letters for a number of years now, hoping, praying and believing that someone is getting something out of what I share. I know sometimes they have been beneficial, if for no one else but me, as it has helped me to declutter my thoughts and work out how I am actually feeling about different situations that have arisen over that time. However, I am realising that some months the only “writing” time that I have been getting to is just these letters, not actually my novels.
So, it is with a bit of sadness and also excitement that I write to tell you I will be stopping the regular monthly letters. I want to get the next book written as much as I’m sure you’ve been patiently wanting to read it. There will be times that I will write to you to give you updates on the book and also what adventures my, our (my husband and I), lives have been taking.
I hope you can understand my intentions and I’m sure I do not need to write paragraphs on how precious our time is. Unfortunately, in today’s society, time is our number one asset and we are all poor of it. I want to be intentional with my time and spend it writing books for you to enjoy, with what little of it I have. And as I shared earlier, my husband and I are staring down the barrel of renovations. In order for me to continue to write during that time something has to give way and I’m sorry it has to be this. But I will still write letters every now and then and if you ever want to contact me please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org .
