Blogging into the Void: Inspiration

Ever since Thanksgiving – fully two months ago plus – there has been a dearth of productivity on my part. It was always edit the next chapter. Get Volume One re-edited and redone for a reprint. Every once in a while some writing a V. 2 would sneak in. Then again it was always back to volume one, damn the volume one.

Well, now it has been re-edited. What remains is to re-submit it to the printer so that a clean version can be reposted online for sale. And yet, for the past several weeks, I have been more and more slipping into a depression of sorts wondering if Volume II can ever move forward. Finally, today, February 9, 2015, I have taken the day off. I have gotten some interesting books. Today I begin reading and seeking inspiration. It has in fact already started. The Muses await, peeking around the door and window, and hopefully today and tomorrow they will make themselves known more fully. This post is the first step.
