This is an update on where things currently stand. I doubt that I'll be getting back to writing any time soon, and possibly not for a long time.
I had what I thought to be a solid employment opportunity lined up only to have it fall through at the end for reasons which seemed, to me, to be inadequate. I suppose it seemed otherwise from their point of view.
At the moment I'm having to devote a lot of time to training to broaden my skill sets, in order to increase the available opportunities. So I just don't have time for a lot of other things, like writing. Besides, I strongly suspect that if I were to write anything at this time, what would emerge would likely be extremely dark, even by my usual standards.
While there's probably an audience for that, it isn't really what I want to do.
So while there's always a chance I'll be hit by a burst of inspiration or two, it should be assumed that I'm signing off for some time to come.
