Dare I say it…it’s big…I should resist, but I must be honest. Here it goes…I was never a David Bowie fan. There, I got it off my chest. I admitted I find Bowie to have been kind of meh. interestingly one of my favorite songs is by him. In fact, it’s right up there near the top of my all time favorite songs. It also happens to be apropos to this weeks post. The song is “Changes”.
I’m making some changes in my life, and they are likely to be reflected in changes to this blog. The name shall remain because I obviously still have bipolar disorder, and I’ll be sharing my insights. Where you will see changes is in the content. Going forward, I’ll be focusing more on the manuscript I’m writing, as well as my weight. Yeah, I’ve tried to focus on weight before, but this time I need to take it more seriously.
I’ve talked about my novel off and on, but haven’t given many details. I don’t plan on giving out too much, but hopefully enough to generate interest. Eventually, I will be creating a website/blog specifically about the book, and I hope I can convince many of you to follow along. Here’s the link to my Amazon Authors Page. As you can see it’s an anthology that happens to have one short story I sold. This time next year, or soon after, my goal is you’ll see my novel in there too.
I don’t know exactly how much I’ve gained recently, but it has been too much and shows in every way, including my discomfort when I sit in a booth in a restaurant. Once I get weighed again, I’ll post it, as well as any progress I achieve. It’s hard to look back and see what a struggle this has been for so many years. I want to live to see my ’60’s, my 70’s, even my ’80’s and more. My current health status isn’t helping to make those goals a reality.
Yeah, I’m not cured, so bipolar will still play a prominent roll in this blog, it just won’t be as often. Until the day I am “fixed” it will hard for me to avoid the subject.
I don’t know how much I’ll be posting, but I’m promising myself it will be much more often. Not only because I have a good time, but I need to promote the hell out of this book. I hope the changes don’t keep you from stopping by.
