And that's not a bad thing at all! I'm enjoying all this quiet, actually. I've been getting a lot of reading, movie watching, and music listening done. I almost forgot how much I missed just absorbing many new books, films, and music like a sponge. I still don't have all the time in the world, but I do have time to make time for them now, and I'm loving the luxury! The Criterion Challenge so far is a lot of fun. I'm glad that some people are taking notice of it and have seen some of the movies that I've watched/reviewed so far. The LGBT film reviews seem to always catch the attention of my followers on my author page. I've been getting a lot of non-erotica reading done. I will have a lot of books to review for Cleis Press/Viva Editions in the future. Wayward Ink Publishing so far has been so fabulously professional, and the editors have been such a pleasure to work with! "No fuss, no muss" is basically how it's been with this publisher as a whole, and I love them for that.
So this year may not be the year of being prolific. I want to keep it that way. Unless an anthology call speaks to me in the future (like it has to be a very unique theme, something that I seldom see or have never done before), I honestly want to take a hiatus from writing short stories, and focus more on getting at least one book of mine out to the world this year. Well, maybe not have one published, but at least have one book acquired/sold to a publisher. Just one! That's enough for me. We'll see!
