Parapsychology Journalism: The People, The Theory, The Science, The Skeptics
For those of you who have been following this blog, I am taking a hiatus for awhile. The reason is that it has always been a dream of mine to write a book and finally, at age 50 I am doing it. Writing a book is an insanely time consuming task and I simply don’t have enough gas in the tank to also write for this blog.
I originally had planned to write a book on the same subject as this blog, but that proved too difficult for me. It turns out that while I don’t have a problem writing short articles on a technical subject, it becomes overwhelming for me to keep it up for the length of a book. Simply put, I got bored with it.
Finally, I abandoned that idea and went with fiction. I am writing a sci-fi novel now and loving every minute of it. Where before, I had trouble getting a single paragraph down, and procrastinated at every turn, the pages now fly off my fingers and I feel quite a bit joy at the process of discovering the story as I’m writing it.
And that’s really how it should be. We have to pay attention to what is easy for us because that is a clue as to where our joy is. The object has been to change careers to doing something I love rather than jogging on the treadmill of an ordinary job. The process has to be fun, not just the end result.
So it may be awhile before I post again. I do check in on this blog and I will respond to comments, but that’s pretty much it. I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a positive change.
