A Writing Slow Down

For those of you interested in my baseball/Red Sox writing, you may have noticed that I haven't done a new weekly review of their games since mid-July. I've decided to stop doing this for this season due almost solely to the fact that I just don't have the time. Between my very busy and demanding job, lots of things that need to get done around my house, wanting to spend time with my wife and kids and friends, and having four kids playing on six different baseball and softball teams between them (two of which I'm coaching), there just aren't enough hours in the day.

My writing for this blog has also slowed to a crawl mainly because of how busy I am. I have no shortage of ideas and half-written drafts for posts, but I'm at the point in my life where my kids (all between the ages of fourteen and eight) are keeping me the busiest but also where I want to spend as much time with them (and my wife) as I can. So yes, I'll still be writing things and posting them here, but not with the frequency of which I've done so over the last six years. I love writing and blogging, but if it's not adding value to my life (and I don't get paid a cent for any of this), it needs to take a backseat.

With that being said, I am working on another book project that I'll probably announce in the next few months and I've got another one coming down the pipeline after that. I'm still plenty busy with the written word, just not as much on this site. I do hope that those of you who enjoy what I write will keep coming back and checking because I will continue to post stuff here, just not as often as before.

Thanks for your continued support!
