It’s been about two weeks since my last posting and for that I throw myself upon your mercy. I do have a good reason though. My wife has recently become the student President of the University of Utah chapter of Engineers Without Borders. What had begun as me helping out in a professional capacity as a computer wiz, somehow evolved into me being made the chief PR officer. Oh and webmaster. And guy in charge of mailing lists….Basically all of the nerdy behind the scenes stuff. My own fault for touting the flexibility and ease of use of Blogger.
So here I am, two weeks later, facing what might be my biggest challenge yet as a writer. I’ve never done any PR stuff before. It’s certainly going to take me out of my comfort zone of fictional writing. But that’s definitely a good thing. I see it as an opportunity for practice at gauging an audience. That’s something I don’t think about too much when I’m writing normally. I know that’s bad form but I generally approach my works with the attitude that I’m writing for myself. That might sound egotistical and probably is, but I have found that I’m much more critical of my work than friends and family.
Anyway that’s where I have been for the past two weeks. Now that the lions share of the set up for the new website is done I can get back to writing again. BY the way if anyone is interested in learning more about Engineers without borders, I’ve put a couple of links at the bottom of this entry.
