Starting Over

Hello again! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Um, what can I say? Bad blogger. I’m ashamed to say it’s been over two years since I’ve made any sort of changes to Spectatrix. It’s true I’ve had a few other things to occupy me—like raising a toddler and transitioning from expat life in France back to expat life in the US—but it’s not like I haven’t been doing other writing in the meantime. I have, lots of it. Just none of it online. I’ve written the first draft of a novel, many short stories, and an essay. In true introvert fashion, I’ve been working on things that take time and much private thought before they can be shown to the world.

And now that I am mostly ready to take my work public again, I am reassessing how best to use my time. I have so enjoyed exploring the introvert experience, but it’s not all of who I am. I’m ready to talk about other things. I still believe it’s important and necessary to educate the uninitiated about the experience and the benefits of being an introvert, but I feel like I’ve had my say.

I don’t know yet what form this blog will eventually take, but I hope you will consider sticking around for what comes next. I have so enjoyed our conversations in the past, and look forward to having more in the future.

    Welcome back. I still had you in my RSS feed and noticed the new post.

    It would be interesting to hear about leaving France. I’ve heard it’s a tough place to live for expats.

    Thanks Martin! I’m sure the stories of our life in France (and our leaving of it) will come up at some point.

    I’d never once left a comment, but had followed this blog via Google Reader for years (for what that’s worth).
