I’ve been away from the blog for a while. I have a good reason, though it’s likely to come across more like an excuse; I haven’t been writing. The last year has been tumultuous since 3D Realms shut down in May of 2009. I’ve been incredibly busy, involved in a lot of things, most of which I can’t talk about.

Suffice to say there hasn’t been much time to write but now that I’ve had a bit time off from hectic schedule I’m slowly delving back into the world of writing. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up — I can’t guarantee a commitment to daily posting like I have in past years of this blog. One of the simplest reasons is because the more writing I do here the less time and energy available to write stories.

In the meantime, I’ve stumbled across some great resources for writers in my sabbatical from this blog.

The podcasts of Creative Screenwriting Magazine are one of them. Enjoy!

Thanks to Mr. Hocking and his readers, a problem with the site was brought to my attention. It appears my host’s page buffers alotted for my site were being overloaded, so if you were trying to reach the site and getting blank pages half the time, that’s why.

The interesting twist to this is that I think the real reason was because of spam. It appears spam was regularly coming through my contact form. The whole point in a contact form is so your email address isn’t exposed to spammers, but apparently they can hit/use the contact forms too. So I downloaded a different WordPress contact form that requires human input in the form of a question.

Anyway, long story short the problem *should* be solved now.

Thanks to Ian and readers for pointing it out. And here I thought it was some temporary BlueHost snafu…
