Baseball analogies, euphemisms and the game itself have always been favorites of mine, but I hardly ever get the chance to use them in my writing. So, even though they have nothing to do with what I’m sharing at the moment, I decided to use baseball pitching terms in my header.
Anyway, I first must say that I’m sorry that I haven’t been paying much attention to what you have been writing and posting for the past couple of weeks. You see, after six-years of unemployment, I suddenly landed a full-time, albeit temporary job.
My position as a photographic image editor begins officially at 1700 hours, Monday through Friday. Some days I work eight hour, others are 10 hours and soon there will be 12 hour long, or longer days.
Aside from not taking the time to read your work, I’ve kind of allowed my own writing to slide. Instead of sitting at the computer keyboard, I’ve been handwriting stories and other things into one of my many notebooks when time affords.
This situation promises to continue through the end of December. From that point, depending on whether I am asked to join the company permanently or not, visiting WP, reading your materials and my writing and posting will be a hit and miss affair.
So, thank you for understand and I pray that you’ll have the patience to stick with me and this transition I find myself wandering through. In the meantime, I will do my very best to catch-up and eventually read everything you post.
