This is a quick mini-post. An update full of apologies and excuses.
It is a statement of goals and intentions for the 2017 writing year.
You may be wondering…
Reader: Dear Me What Has Kept You So Long?
1880’s Girl: The honest answer? I don’t know. We were going along so smoothly, pretty regularly, thoroughly enjoying each new avenue of research and enquiry then bang!
Just like that, I hit a hiatus!
I didn’t mean to it just sort of happened. I didn’t even have time to finish my series on Victorian Dances which was mostly written already and had pictures and everything. (See this Friday’s Post for the conclusion)
Reader: Well if you haven’t been writing what have you been doing?
1880’s Girl: That is just it, I have been writing, just not blog posts. I finished the first draft of my second book in the Helen’s Seasons series. I finished the edits on and formatted Helen’s Summer (book 1 in Helen’s Seasons) and learnt the ins-and-outs of self-publishing enough to get us started.
Reader: Is that all? It seems like you could have at least kept us in the loop with a regular Newsletter.
1880’s Girl: No that isn’t all, and I do apologise about the Newsletter but I have also sold my house, started building a new house and moved in with my in-laws. I had one trip over east for a convention and an overseas trip to visit family. The disappointing truth is I have trouble juggling it all.
This blog is a ball I dropped. For which I apologise but I’ve picked it up again and we are set for 2017.
Reader: What do you have planned for us this 2017 writing year?
1880’s Girl: Quite a lot actually.
- Helen’s Autumn is due to come out the end of the year.
- Helen’s Winter is outlined (in my head) waiting to be written
- Return of 1880’s Girl’s weekly blog post
- Return of 1880’s Girl’s bimonthly newsletter if you haven’t signed up yet click here.
Thanks to my U.S. trip I’ve got heaps of new books to delve into. I hope you will all stay along for the ride.
