Autumn is my favorite time of year, and also by far the busiest. Those two statements don’t necessarily correlate with one another though. :-)
What I enjoy the most about this season is how the colors spring to life outside, where a palette of gorgeous red, green, yellow, and brown mix wonderfully together in the forests I frequent in the area where I live. I’m lucky to have so many woodland areas nearby to walk in, and do so every chance I get.
Those opportunities are less frequent in these months as I’d like them to be, however, as I am wrapping up a couple of different projects and assorted loose ends, as well as planning next year’s schedule. 2013 will entail less writing, more editing, and more promotion. I had a hard time convincing myself of putting new writing projects on the backburner, but the fact is that I have a plethora of unpolished works loitering on my harddrive that I ought to take some time to edit, and then decide for myself whether or not they are worthy of pursuing a publishing deal for, or if they are destined for the recycle bin labeled: “Gave me experience in writing but wasn’t very good”.
On a completely different note, I want to thank everyone who has purchased SOS Sommerferie through Amazon, and want to remind Amazon Prime members that they can actually read the book for free through that service.
Until next time, I’ll leave you with a photo I took a recent, chilly morning in one of our nearby forests (with my dog, Harrison, making a cameo-appearance in the foreground).
