Here it is, a brand new year, bright and shiny, waiting to unfold. And I am stuck. I am a writer who has not written a word for over a year, except for Facebook posts. Last year was bad for me as far as my writing life is concerned. My agent died suddenly, his files were found to be…well, missing is one way to put it. So there was no way to trace where my two manuscripts which I thought were being looked at actually were. This stopped me cold. I had no idea how to continue. I have had an agent for twenty years, this one for 15 of those years and the shock paralyzed me.
But this is a new year. Surely a new wave of energy will push me back to work. And I am reading Lev Rafael’s book called Writers Block is Bunk. So maybe I will discover that he is right. One thing I have decided is that if nothing else, I will blog with more consistency, especially about the concerts, operas and ballets I attend here and abroad.
So here’s to the new year. May it continue bright and shiny, and full of words!
