my first product release


For the past two months, this blog has represented what it means to be inconsistent. Symbolic of laziness, like me living with my parents. The epitome of irregularity, like an unhealthy woman’s period.

However you want to phrase it.

So for those of you sitting and staring at your inbox, perched on the edge of your seat with a slight dribble plopping onto your ergonomic keyboard as you await my next blog post, I have but one thing to offer: my excuse.

a first time for everything

For the past three months I have been working voraciously and ravenously, excitedly and jovially, on my very first product release.

Yes, I said it. Close shut that jaw with an audible click, please. After more than a year of inconsistent, second-shift employment and more time off than I’ve had since I was 12, my very first product is nearly done and ready to be released to the ever-demanding public.

And when this product rolls out in all its magic, NO LONGER will I have to answer the question, “So what have you written?” when people ask me “What do you do?” with “Nothing, yet.”

NO LONGER will I have to justify to my girlfriend’s relatives my impulsive, semi-poorly planned decision to quit my job and launch my career as a writer with claims to the fact that “I’m working on it.”

NO LONGER will I feel the pseudo-shame of the self-touted writer yet unpublished author, the self-conscious blogger who talks about people pursuing their dreams yet doesn’t seem to be doing just that.

the little handbook

This new product, to be released at my earliest convenience (i.e. when I’m no longer ashamed of its quality), is philosophical in nature and revolves around the ancient Taoist script, the Tao Te Ching. Not quite sure what Taoism is? Wikipedia can help.

I have dubbed it The Little Handbook and am tentatively announcing its release date as “late September.”

Stay tuned for more updates about The Little Handbook, as well as an announcement regarding my new blog!
