Crawling out of my cave

“We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”

This is one my very favorite quotes. For those who don’t know, it’s from the Doctor Who episode, “The Big Bang.”

You see, the Doctor is…

Spoilers!

I can’t tell you what led to the Doctor uttering those words because if you have any interest in watching Doctor Who, I want you to find out for yourself, but I can tell you that something in his words struck me. Two months ago, I went to Scotland. On a tour of the Glasgow Train Station underground, our tour guide told stories of the Scottish men who died in World War I.

“Your stories matter,”  he said. “Everyone’s stories matter, as does who tells the tales.”

My story has taken a lot of twists and turns this year. Because of this, the stories I tell have had to take a back burner to the story I’m living. All the while, though, I’ve been aching to tell stories again. I have books I’ve started, even a book I’ve almost finished. I have ideas I’ve jotted down that are starting to take shape and ideas that are no more than a sentence fragment or a flash of a character.

For those who’ve missed me, rest assured that I’m clawing my way back to a place that lets me write often so I can tell all of those stories that have been waiting for my own tale to reach the end of a difficult chapter.

As we approach the mid-point of the last month of the year, I want to leave you with a small bit of news. Last Christmas, I published the story of Elora and Milos in an anthology that’s no longer for sale. This year, I’ve released the story as a standalone book. Right now, Just Another New Year’s Eve is only available for the Kindle, but by the end of the week, it should be available on all platforms and in paperback.
