Blog Changes

If a certain something doesn’t happen, I’ll be making some changes here in a few weeks. I’ll be changing the whole format, look and style of this blog. The name will change as well. A few of the pages will disappear. I will start over from scratch. If this certain something does happen, then I’ll probably leave the blog as it is until the certain something has been completed. Then I’ll make the changes. At some point down the road, you’ll find out what the certain something was.

In other news, I’m not sure I want to write any more books. Few people read what I write anyway. The few books I’ve self-published have not done well at all. Maybe I’m a terrible writer. (If you’re reading this, I appreciate you). Some of my articles have been published in occult magazines, and I was actually paid for them, though it’s been awhile since the last one. This is partly due to Covid affecting my work schedule, and partly due to severe anxiety I was suffering from just a few months ago. If I do write again, it will be under a pseudonym. The new blog will also be named after the pseudonym. It’s one I have used before, briefly, but it keeps coming back to me and I think it’s time to give it a new life. As far as writing books is concerned, I actually have submitted manuscripts to regular publishers. One of them was Llewellyn Publishing, but I never got a reply from them. Nothing. I followed their guidelines for submitting manuscripts, and never received so much as a “we got your manuscript, but no thank you”. No response at all. I submitted a different manuscript to a different publisher, and was informed it was too long and I would have to invest some of my own money for them to publish it. Rather curious. Of course, I declined. So, book publishing has left rather a bad taste in my mouth.

It’s been extremely hot here, in the 90’s nearly every day, but I will still take this over one flake of snow any day. My poor car is still surviving, as I’m sweating behind the wheel with no air conditioning. I open the windows, but it doesn’t help much.

About a week ago, I had to accept the fact that I gained some excess weight during the pandemic and it’s time to do something about it. No more Oreos. No more European candy bars in the evenings. Not for awhile, anyway. One latte day now instead of three. Is three too many? I don’t know. I’m a coffee addict. When I get a sweet craving, I eat cereal now. We’re going back to the gym. I’m not happy with how I look right now. There are a few other things I’m not happy with right now.

Anyway.

The hubby had to have a tooth pulled today and has gone to bed early. I will be joining him soon, as I have to be at work early tomorrow.

Til next time,

Rick
