New World Clarifications

Hello again my beautiful Internet People!  Sorry if my vagueness led to some confusion yesterday.  I am not quiting Facebook, or this Blog, or anything else.  Not sure where that idea came from, but that was not what I was getting at, not even close.

I know my tendency to be so vague, and to talk in circles, confuses some people.  Sorry about that.  I have mentioned that I am an emotional basket-case, haven't I?  I run from one end of the spectrum to the other, constantly, all day long.  What I may not have mentioned is that I am not allowed to talk to all of you about anything that I am mad at my husband about.  I can tell you about anything good that he does, that's allowed, just not the bad stuff.  That's the rule.  So, when he pisses me off in one way or another, you get vague, slightly hysterical, and otherwise indecipherable Blog Posts.  Does it make any more sense now?  Probably not.

Anyway, the point of yesterday's post was that I am writing a new book.  That's where the "new world" comes from, its the one I am creating for the book.  (Actually, I am seeing a whole series of books now, there could be all kinds of different directions to take this idea, but for now, I am just working on one.)  The story will be of a sci-fi/ fantasy genre, which is something new for me.  I have read lots of sci-fi and fantasy, but I haven't tried writing it before.  

This will be a story about empowerment.  That's what I want to write about.  I am tired of victim stories, I want to write stories without victims, only heroes.  I think it can be done, and I think I can do it well.  Whether the rest of the world is ready for it or not remains to be seen, but I know I am.  I need to be the hero of my own life, even if it is only in a story.  You have to start somewhere, ... right? 

If I can ever get some of the pesky little details worked out I hope to be spending a lot of my time working on writing this story, which is why I said I might not be around here as much.  I am not putting the Blog aside, not at all, I just need to put as much time and energy into this story as possible.  And that may leave me with less time to write here.  On the upside, you will probably get a whole lot less of those boring "what I did today" posts that I flooded you all with last winter.  Maybe.  Can't promise you that.  But the odds are in your favor.  Probably.

Right now I need to sign outta here and get busy figuring out just what the futuristic, Eco-friendly, self-managed homes and cities will look like in my new world.  Details, details, details, its all about the details.  

Until next time ...
