A return to blogging?

*dusts off blog console*

Well, once again it’s been months since I’ve posted here. I think that when I lost my entire blog history a few years ago it just took the wind out of my sails and I haven’t had the taste for blogging lately.

But I suppose since I’m in here updating plugins and deleting the hundred or so spam comments I’ve gotten, I may as well update you, my potential audience (does anyone read this thing?) on what’s going on with me.

Lately most of my energy has gone into working on my latest project: Hectalex

Hectalex is based on a thing that some friends and I used to do to encourage each other to write something every day. We would pick a daily phrase and then the challenge was to write exactly 100 words using that phrase as the inspiration. I’ve spun the idea a bit by using random images as the sparks for those stories, but the idea is still the same: to write a little something every day, just to keep the gears greased.

It’s in closed beta right now as I finish up a few more features, but I intend to open it up to the world pretty soon.

The other big new development since last year is that I’ve started taking flying lessons and I love it. I only want to fly now. Fly everywhere. I’m on the part of my training where I pretty much just have to get the rest of my cross-country flights done and then I’ll be ready to take my test, so hopefully I’ll be able to finish up and get my private pilot license by the end of this year.

As always, it is my intention to keep this thing updated more frequently, but I’ll be honest and say that it might be a few months before I remember to come back here.
