A Brief Update

Howdy, all.

I thought I should let everyone know that I’m still alive and kicking, though my foot has found new targets on which to land. 🙂

Just as I was starting to get back on track, my current employer announced an outsourcing plan that could affect my position. That’s added to the life roll I’d already been on and the fallout from that has sadly kept me away from the keyboard.

It will take a few months for things to shake out. I’d love to get back into the writing mix within that time frame, but I’m not going to stress about it.

Until then, I hope the rest of you are carrying on without me! You got this!

    Wishing you well, Phillip. It’ll be great to hear you’re writing again, whenever it happens.

    1. Thanks, Harvey! I’ll still be sneaking in bits of writing here and there, but I think it’ll be awhile before I return to the level of production I was seeing in January.

  2. Thank you for the update. Good luck with this second life roll, and I hope you do manage to get some writing done during that time. Without sweating too much over it – family and health should still take priority, which is also not always easy to do if you’re worried about your day job.

    Best wishes, and we’ll be there to follow you whenever you’re back!

    1. I appreciate the kind support, Céline! I’ve definitely been juggling more balls than I’m normally comfortable with, but I’m confident everything will work out well, no matter which direction things go. I hope you are doing well. 🙂

  3. Mate. The last two years of my life were dominated by outsourcing. Twelve months resisting it, formulating alternatives, steering the decision, but ultimately seeing it happen. Six months implementing it to ensure I could mitigate as much damage as possible and see my team through it. Six months watching my predictions come true.

    I leave on Tuesday.

    I’ve never been happier. It’s time I wish had gone differently, but it’s put me on a path I was resisting for a long time.

    If you want to chat, seek advice, or just sound off, give me a shout. I’ve been there, and for people who are capable, people who care, it always works out.

    1. Col, much appreciated my friend. It’s going to be an interesting few months. I can’t help but think that I’ll be RUNNING back to the writing as soon as I feel there’s room to breathe without compromising my family and health. I just love the act of creation too much to give it up cold turkey.

  4. Thanks for the update, Phillip! If you gotta roll, I hope the path isn’t too bumpy. Take care of yourself!

    1. Thanks, Marie!

  5. Keep on cooking, Phillip, and take the writing off simmer when you’re ready. All the best.

    1. Thank you, Mark!

  6. Man, that kind of uncertainty just plain sucks, my friend. Updating your resume totally counts as writing, you know. 😉 Hang in there.

    1. Thanks bud!
