From my Heart ~ A Preview of 2016
Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!
This post, by it's nature will be a long one, so please stick with me to the end. Although this is my third post of 2016, it's the first chance I've had to truly wish each of you all the blessings that can come with a new beginning, such as that offered as one year ends and another begins.
It's also the first chance I've had to explain my somewhat sudden disappearance from your inbox or Blogger reader. The truth is that while creativity is, and indeed will remain a priority for me, I am, after all "Creative Em," for some time now what you see on this blog hasn't been my priority. I've always been a writer and for the latter part of 2015 that has been what I've been focusing on.
What does that mean for this site?
Don't worry, I'm not abandoning you, my beloved readers and friends. Nor am I abandoning the creative side of me which I post about on here. Yes, it was a conscious, much thought about decision to refocus. But so too was to reapply for, and be accepted onto the House of Cards design team for the six months through June 2016.
While I can't, right now, say how frequently I'll be posting to this site, two monthly posts are guaranteed, my HOC posts on the 1st and 10th of the month. I'm also still available for commissions and will post creations on here as often as I can.
Will we see you elsewhere?
YES! I will still be visiting you, reading your posts and commenting. So while you'll not see me so often here, I'll try and keep up with all of you on your sites.
Also, for sometime now I've had another blog, Creative Thoughtfulness, where I've posted my writing and musings. An abridged version of this post with a similar title, has been simultaneously posted to that site. I'd be honored if you'd consider following me on that site, because with the exception of this post, I won't be posting the same thing twice. I'd never want to spam you!
Alternatively, I will be posting all posts to the Creative Em Facebook page, so if you've not liked it, please do.
So what's your writing about?
There isn't a single answer to that question and you'll find different subjects over on Creative Thoughtfulness. I'm blessed to be able to write in a number of formats, from short verses, to journal-like pieces, blog posts and even longer works.
For years now, almost as long as I can remember, I've had the ideas for a number of novels in my mind and I'm hoping that by refocusing on writing, I'll be able to devote at least some of the time to those works. Only time will tell, of course, but as the image above says, they are mine to tell and I only I can.
HUGE THANKS to each of you for your love, support and understanding. AND for sticking with me to this point in the post. Each of you truly does mean so much to me. Indeed words can't describe how I feel about you. THANK YOU!
