Coming Back to Life
Sunday, 07 August, 2016
After what felt like forever, I’ve actually made a little dent in my to-be-read pile, and it’s quite reassuring to see new books take their place on the bookshelf.
I haven’t just been reading other author’s work -- I took the opportunity to have a read through some of my earlier releases and, while I think that people got to enjoy them quite a bit, there’s probably a lot more I could have done with some of them to make them into something bigger and better before their release. I know that perfect is the enemy of good enough, but if the book is going to go and stand on its own merits, then perhaps taking that bit of extra time to make it as polished as possible is really going to be worth it.
Even though I’m not at the point of being ready to release a new title, I have been writing in little snatches here and there. That in itself is a good sign and, when I measure how my earlier books evolved and were published, against all the internal things that have gone on over the last few years, it does feel like a positive start again.
