5 weeks and counting
So, I have bought my ticket to the UK, booked for end of April. I have also found a job out in the countryside where I will spend the European summer working. As of 1 May, any blog posts you see here will be from another country and another mind-set.
A lot of people have been asking me WHY? Simple answer is I need a rest, re-boot and re-start. I do feel like I am less creative, less responsive, more impatient, and a little more jaded. I don’t really like feeling that way about myself.
The other answer is that I can. I have nothing physical or tangible holding me here… like a house, wife, kids, so I can have another grand adventure easily. And easily is a key word here. Nothing has been easy the last couple of years. So here we go, night swimming.
I realise this may not be wise. Maybe short sighted. I just don’t care. This one comes from the gut and I have to go.
I won’t be gone forever, but I suspect I will be gone all of the rest of 2013. My novel Johannesburg will be completed by the time I will leave. My editor marc is catching me up on the subbing, correcting. Then we’ll see what the publishers say… new adventures are always around the corner. I am just kinda sick of planning them!
Suffice to say, the story here will continue. Hopefully we will all make some new friends. I will have to cut off the comments function though. I doubt I will be online enough to keep checking away the amount of spam that it attracts. Sorry, but you can always email me from the contacts page, where ever I am!
If you read this site regularly, I will keep the count-down going until departure day, so don’t run away just yet, OK?
