Not the usual AWOL, I suppose. I mean, a person’s not supposed to give notice when they go AWOL, are they?
But it was time. In November I blogged that my heart was in my writing and since then I’ve worked to finish my fantasy novel – yes, I’m still working on that one – and on getting my out of print books up on Amazon, plus pull two other finished mysteries into shape to publish. Every time I turned around, the demands of teaching the Bootcamp and my college classes interfered, making my progress very slow. Finally it came to a head, and after some heart to heart conversations with family members and close friends I eventually concluded I couldn't do it all.
I decided to take a six month leave of absence from Bootcamp for Novelists. I’m rescheduling my upcoming classes and will return on September 7 with Sparkling Dialogue, followed by Punch Up Your Prose. Come the new year (yes, 2013, how quickly time flies) I’ll resume the Four Pillars of Structure. Registration will remain open for those classes and I will offer 2-4 course package discounts.
In the meantime I’ll be busy finishing the book that’s been burning in my heart for so long and will keep in touch with former students and future students through the Bootcamp Bunker. I now might even find time to take in some movies or spend a day at the mall and there will definitely be more lunches with family and friends.
So see you in September. I’ll be looking refreshed.
P.S. Leave a comment for a chance to win a free copy of my debut paranormal novel, SHADOW ON THE MOON.
