I experienced a sense of achievement and excitement with the relaunch of the official Family Secrets website. Some of my blog followers will be familiar with my animation series. For the past three years I've been fortunate to work with a very talented group of people to bring the series to life. As the first season came to a close in December 2011, the time had come to breathe some new life into the series' official website. Over the past month, the site has been redesigned, the content updated and some more back story made available. Today, at 2 p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC/GMT + 10), the new site was officially released.
Halfway through the first draft of the second book in my science-fiction series, I realise that a particular plot line just isn't working. It was struggling along like a bicycle rim on a gravel road. The solution?
As I was updating my other site (www.family-secrets.net) I came to the realisation that it has been over a year since I last made a blog entry. Ashamed to admit it, I can offer numerous excuses for my absence, ranging for a hectic work schedule in 2011, other priorities, enc. Fact of the matter is that I simply ran out of things to blog about. You'd think that after more than 20 years of writing, I would have a plethora of topics to discuss. The lack of topics isn't the problem. It has more to do with a desire to write something meaningful and intelligent.
