I just noticed that 2017 has not been a blogging content heavy year for The Preston Beat. To be honest, I've been trying (i.e. struggling) to write a fictional novel this year and working on my freelance career. I think that being a Journalism major and writing articles has reduced my ability to write a long fictional story. Every story I try to write just doesn't cut it for me. I think it's also because I'm so used to creating short, informational stories now, it's hard for me to switch for some reason. Anyway, I'm still working on it. It's a process, I guess. But this is why you haven't heard from me a lot. Every time I have time to write, I'm experimenting with this and working on getting my groove back.
