There are times when I'm engaging more with the people around me, active on social media, speaking more, writing short pieces. I think of those times as more outward-directed.
And then there are times when I'm
reading more, and listening more, and spending more time writing long
fiction. Or even just planning, outlining, drafting. In these times, the
pull is inward.
I'm in the latter type of phase right now. I've
been reading a lot. I've been writing a lot of stuff that is not yet fit
for other people's eyes. (Or even decipherable by them, probably.)
all good. But I feel as if I've been relatively quiet lately. So this
is me just poking a hand above the surface to wave hello.
