Public Service Announcement (JFXL)

Allow me to reintroduce myself.

OK, I don’t really need a reintroduction. Y’all know who I am. But I have been somewhat absent, both on this blog and on social media, in general, and now I’m back and wanted to give y’all an update of sorts.

You see, I celebrated my [redacted] birthday in September, and during that time I decided to relax and just do me. And boy am I glad that I did.

During the past few weeks I’ve done quite a bit of soul searching. I mean, I’m older now. I’m old. It really is time for me to stop talking and to start doing. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do: Do.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

Neale Donald Walsch‘s oft-repeated quote is very relevant here. I’d settled into a very comfortable groove, and the truth is, it’s no longer satisfying. Things that I thought I wanted I no longer want. I’m not happy with my overall current situation โ€” take that however you wish.

And so begins the changing of direction. The doing. The leaving of my comfort zone.

Now, this doesn’t mean that I am going to stop writing. Oh no, no, no.

In fact, I’m going to be pursuing writing even harder. Screenwriting will take precedence, but I will still be writing novels, and I’ve quite a few ideas on both fronts.

“Now before I finish, let me just say I did not come here to show out, did not come here to impress you. Because to tell you the truth when I leave here I’m GONE!

“And I don’t care WHAT you think about me โ€” but just remember, when it hits the fan, brother, whether it’s next year, 10 years, 20 years from now, you’ll never be able to say that these brothers lied to you, JACK!

And that’s it.
