I think all you visitors to the Inkwell know that I was blessed with a three book contract. As I'm fond of saying, "God knocked my socks off!" :)
With this blessing comes a lot of work. Now, don't get the wrong idea. I'm so happy for this opportunity, but I have to go find my balance. My writing balance. So I am going to take some time off from blogging. I'll stop in now and then to comment and I might even surprise you all once and awhile but I have to do what God has led me to do and that's write the next book in my series.
Just like Rick Castle must write and research so must I. (You didn't think I'd disappear without plugging my favorite show now, did ya?) Now if I could only get one of those WRITER vests.
Because I work full-time during the day as a counselor and have a busy family like many other writers I've got to set priorities. And as much as I love Inkyland I must learn how to manage two careers. I have to admit, it's kind of fun having a pen name because I feel like I can change hats from counselor to writer; a definitive boundry so to speak. Does that make sense.
Don't be surprised if you see a Jillian Kent website launch in the near future (I'm sure my girlfriends here will keep you posted) and I may try a little blogging as Jillian, we'll see. But the focus is on getting the work done. So it is with some sadness I leave you for awhile, but I'll be back. Or as Arnold says: "I'LL BE BACK." Did you catch the deeper tone? :)
Blessings to each of you as you pursue your dreams.
This one's for the girls, for the girls who love to write, the girls who love to read, and especially for these girls I have the pleasure of calling my Inky Sisters. See ya round the Inkwell.
