A new look!

I haven't been posting lately because I've been working on my blog and a new homepage! It's easy to remember: www.amybearce.com . Many thanks to my wonderful friend Dawn, over at Dawn by Design for helping me work out a way to have both. :) Dawn, it's just what I was hoping for! Thank you so much!

I'm also celebrating because I completed my first draft of my current work in progress-- my third completed manuscript. I've printed it out and have set it aside for a while so that when I start the revision process, it'll be with more objective eyes.

I've also discovered that while I like having a blog, it takes a lot of time and attention to be a frequent blogger, at least if I want to say anything meaningful. Again, as the last time I began blogging, I'm realizing it takes time that I would otherwise use to work on my current project. With two small kids, time is at a premium and I have to choose the best way to spend it. That's a big reason I asked Dawn to help me create a static homepage. I wanted a place to keep up-to-date information without having to update my blog every other day. I just can't keep up that pace, not right now.

So, I'm happy with this balance. Life's all about balance, isn't it? While I won't be a super-frequent poster, I will continue give updates on my work, my thoughts on writing (I'm currently reading an excellent book on writing-- I'll post on that soon) and will continue to link to other postings that I find valuable. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like the new look! :)
