My secret project has launched!

The last post on this website was about me taking some time off to focus on a big non-fiction project that I wanted to get off the ground.

Guess what. The super secret project has launched and has been going strong for the second month, making me feel confident enough to maybe venture back into the world of fiction. Right in time for the Camp NaNo in July, much to the delight of my writing buddy Megal Linden.

But first, I want to present you with the reason I disappeared:

PATH TO LESS

A website about the journey towards lessening my impact on the environment, lessening the focus on material things with the help of minimalism and zero waste movements.

I started to look around my apartment and all the things I own and I realized that I am part of the problem.

And so I made a decision. I am not a  superhero. I cannot single-handedly save the world. But I can become part of the solution.

And in a truly millennial way of doing things, I’ll be using this blog to chronicle my journey as I cut down on what I own, and the impact I have on the environment.

It’s highly likely that I won’t always succeed, but hell, it’s the one battle where the journey is really what matters.

Wish me luck?

WIP: A super secret project

So I started to work on a new non-fiction project recently, something that I will call my Super Secret Project for the time being, and as a result, my fiction projects got pushed to the side…

Part of me is feeling a little guilty because I’ve been working on my novels for years and years, getting better at my craft and figuring out which path I want to take with them.

But at the same time, I’ve never been this passionate about anything that wasn’t fiction writing, so now that I’ve discovered this new thing, I can’t help but pursue it. I have to rearrange my priorities and focus on getting this project off the ground because if I don’t, I will regret it for the rest of my life.

There will always be stories in my head, ready to be told. And I’ll keep working on them because I love them. But for the next couple of months, I’ll be taking a kind of sabbatical – to pursue this shiny new thing 🙂

Wish me luck!
