All these changes, the drought, the healing, the this and that of life have shoved me down a different path.
It’s not a new path, I’ve been here before… but it’s been a long time, and the dust and cobwebs have taken over, making it hard for me to sort out what’s in front of me.
And with new paths come new ambitions. (Actually I think that’s just me no matter what the path.) Or maybe they’re not new ambitions, but more so that pieces are being rearranged, priorities being re-examined.
Here’s what I’m looking at:
- I’ve shut down my dog training site and am now working on a new business plan to submit sooner than later for grants on a new non-profit venture that I’ve wanted to do since I was five. It’s still dog training if you’re looking for a hint. (If you know the ins and outs of any of this grant and non-profit business or want to help out please email me!)
- I’ve started working on a new blog (gasp!) that goes back to my original blogging style of more home and faith-based things. I had to do it. I need to get back to that place in my life. And I needed to get away from wordpress and all their stupid rules of not posting affiliate links. This economy begs that my time be spent increasing my family and home in one way or another. WordPress I love ya, and this blog isn’t going anywhere, but you’ve hindered me for way too long. For those interested I’ll be posting a link later when eveything is all set up and ready to go.
- And you’ll notice that I’m not on any social networking sites. This part won’t last, I promise I’ll be back once my goals around here have been met. It’s that priority thing. Which sucks because friends ARE a priority, just not so much the huge blocks of time it takes me to connect to even chat with my friends. I’ll work it out somehow. (However I am stalking pinterest again to motivate myself to complete said goals around the house) (and emails, have I mentioned how much I love emails?)
So what about the book? It’s still in the plans, just moved back a few slots in importance. There’s a few major details I didn’t quite care for and I suppose I’m waiting for my muse to work those kinks out and get back to me. The nice thing about not being with an agent or publisher yet is that I get to take months off when ever I choose, and I’m fully going to enjoy that advantage while I can.
