Going out on a high

I got this email. Just now.

I must admit that part of me ponders the implication of being called a little genius (does it mean I’m smart but not that smart, or does it mean the person who wrote it is physically huge and therefore considers me a tiny guy–albeit a smart tiny guy? Hmmm…)

Most of me, though, still cannot believe the high I get from knowing that someone, not only enjoyed my book, but also benefited from it in some way.
That’s a high money can never buy.

Notice that last sentence, the one that asks, “When is your next book coming out?”
While I do have one in the works, odds are that it won’t see the light of day for another 18-24 months.
Yeah, I know, I’m a slow novelist.

But it’s not only that.
It’s also that, right now, I’m incredibly busy at my day job, the one that sees me as an accountant who writes.
Lots of writing, teaching and consulting projects on the go, right now.

And, when I take a respite from all that, I’d really like to use that downtime to work on ze novel.
And so…
I feel I need to take a sabbatical from this blog.
For how long, I don’t know.

If you’d like to keep in touch, I will continue to update my other site, my business site.
The one over at dilauro.ca.
So maybe I’ll see you there.
Whether you migrate over or not, I’d like to thank each of you, from the bottom of my heart, for reading my ongoing ramblings, for buying my book and, especially, for taking the time to post comments here on this blog.

As I said, I will be posting here again one day.
In the meantime, thank you and Arrivederci.

    One of the best outcomes of this blog is finding and making new friends. Thanks, Jane, for being one of those friends.
    All the best,
    Mike
