Resolution Progress

            At the beginning of the year I resolved to a number of goals, the biggest of these being a change in career. I have partially succeeded. I’ve move over to a new school, which has helped tremendously. And while this is not a complete career change, I feel it is a significant step.
            Moreover, I have begun speaking at conferences, teaching my expertise on mythology and fairy tales to writers. I think so long as I am pursuing teaching in this vein, it’s a career change. I plan to add on more speaking engagements, and have begun toying with the idea of a non-fiction book on mythology and fairy tales aimed at writers (and we’ll throw students in with that crowd, why not?).
            And I’ve decided to stick Matt in a drawer. I just haven’t been able to get any traction with him, so I think it’s time. Maybe if I can get the attention of an agent with one of the other books, I can bring him back out, but for now he’s going in the drawer. Maybe I’ll go the route of self-publishing when I get the rest of his books polished, but that’s just the way it’s got to be right now.
