Here he is!

It is my joy to announce the safe arrival of Baby Daniel into the world.  He is the reason I’ve taken the several month-long break from blogging, and I might add a very cute one at that.  It still amazes me that this tiny person grew inside me for these last few months.  We are all very happy that he is here and healthy!

Now that life is starting to stabilize it is my intention to return to regular blogging and work on the novel.  Both have been ever-present, nagging me from the back of my head.  With the change in the family I will not be working at the same breakneck speed as before but even a small amount of work done consistently will bring me closer to my goals.

I suppose I’ll need to go and change my Twitter blurb, it now reads:

Aspiring novelist working on an epic fantasy and a suspense thriller. Also blogging about the art of writing and more. Hoping to impress an agent in 2011.”

No lack of ambition there!  There is no way that will happen this year, and at my current pace I’ll count myself lucky to be in a place to start querying agents by this time next year.  There is the possibility that by the time I’m ready to start the publication process that I might need to seriously consider the e-book market as well.

Until then I’ll keep posting updates on how things are going, interesting writing tidbits, and more – so stay tuned.

Wishing all a Merry Christmas and Happy Writing!
