Moving, Changing, Feeling the Flow

New Digs During Construction

There are two more days until we uproot everything we own and move it about twenty minutes away from where it now rests. That probably seems a lot less significant when you put it that way than it really is.  Honestly, we’re moving from a 100 year old historic home to a brand new home.  We’re going to save a lot on utilities and taxes.  We’re going to halve all commutes and school trips.  We’re going to have a house without drafts, where the doors and windows work…there are are many other things.

As a writer and publisher, I hope it will free up more time, help me organize the clutter, and in general give me a better attitude.  All of these are productive things moving into a new year.  I hope it will bring more serenity to the family.  I hope we’ll like the new place, the neighborhood, and the situation.  I don’t know where my computer will sit, or where I’ll write – that will be new.

Still, I can’t imagine anything more refreshing than a total reboot, and that’s basically what has been accomplished here.  I won’t take much credit for it – Trish worked long and hard to find a place; providence dropped buyers into our lap in a market when we had no good expectation of finding one…the stars apparently aligned.  I’m good with that.

Exciting things will happen with publishing this year – both digital and audio – and if all works out, even some print.  Who knows?  Maybe the long-awaited book featuring myself and Neil Gaimain writing fiction inspired by the art of Lisa Snellings will happen.  I believe it might…we are one story away, and Neil has begun writing it.

For now, I have to wait.  In a few days, we’ll be in a new place.  I’ll have more to say then.  For now, I will fill the hours with the current ghost-writing project and some publishing catch-up…

Change that makes a difference…

  1. All the best with the move, david. Yes, it does sound like it will be cathartic and therapeutic. A declutter both literal and metaphorical. All the best too with your writing projects – sounds like this is going to be an exciting time for you.
