    The truth is I am neither bored or uninspired.

    I have been extremely busy doing consultation work with a number of writers and have been exploring several career opportunities.

    I also do volunteer work when time permits.

    I truly appreciate your comments and have a great deal of appreciation and respect for you and my other TPI readers who have been tremendously supportive over the last couple of years.

    I guess I could have just replied, “It’s complicated”, but I thought I would provide a bit more information than that.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Thanks again.

  2. I feel that we, the reader, aren’t getting any sort of “insider” perspective lately. Are you bored or uninspired?
