It’s been quite a while since I posted anything here. August of 2009 actually.
There is a relatively simple reason for that - I was let go in August 2009. I’ve always been in control of my career, deciding which moves to make and when, so this this loss of control was quite disconcerting. As it turns out, it was probably the best thing that happened to me, although that’s certainly not what I was thinking at the time.
I won’t get into the usual dialogue that generally accompanies situations like this. For one thing, that’s not really my style. I firmly believe in the separation of church and state and generally don’t blog about items that aren’t related to my persona as an author. However I felt that my extended absence required an explanation.
As I alluded to earlier, my getting let go put me on the market at the right time for me to land my dream job. This is the job that I’ve been looking for for years now and there is a certain irony that it took losing control over my career for me to find it.
However anytime you start a new job, there is always a significant period of time required to get up to speed, not to mention establishing yourself as a credible presence. This is why I haven’t been posting. As much as I enjoy writing, it doesn’t even come close to paying the bills. Work has to come first. I make no apologies for that. I do apologize for dropping off the radar and will do my best to post more regularly going forward.
Thank you all for your patience and support.
