Hello everyone. I’m sorry to say that this will be my final post on To Stand and Stare. But worry not! I have started a new WordPress blog called The Wordy Gurdy Man.
You’ll have noticed that I’ve neglected TSAS since the beginning of November 2013 when I set off on my NaNoWriMo journey. I managed to write my novel and ‘win’ the NaNoWriMo challenge. Now comes the task of revision, rewriting and then considering my next move (to self-publish or to find a publisher). This new phase of my novel writing adventure will be covered on TWGM, along with my passions for reading and music. If you do want to follow me in my new adventures I’d be delighted. A full description of TWGM‘s focus and aims can be found on the blog’s About page.
My reasons for mothballing TSAS are that I ostensibly set up the blog when I had become lost in the wilderness of life. I had planned to find myself again by writing about myself – my thoughts, feelings and so on. I no longer feel that need, which is a good thing. It’s a very very good thing. So now I want to move on and write about three of my main passions: I am shifting my focus from inward looking to outward looking. I considered rejigging TSAS, but decided that I would prefer a clean slate, and so TWGM was conceived and born.
I’m proud of TSAS, and if nothing else the experience has helped me get to grips with the world of blogging. I have put a lot of thought and effort into how I want to present myself to the online community, and it’s now time to step forward with confidence, fully fledged and ready to fly.
So ta-ta for now, and I hope see you over at The Wordy Gurdy Man‘s blog.
