Happy New Year everybody! Hope y’all had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Kwanzaa, or whatever holiday you celebrate. Man, it’s 2023. Can you believe it? This won’t be a normal blog. I know in last month’s blog, I said that this month’s blog would be about the magic of the series, but sometimes life gets in the way. This past December was a very difficult one for me. Quite a bit of professional stresses led to some mental struggles for me last month. I had decided to take a complete break from writing for the month to help deal with my mental health and recharge my batteries. Therefore, I paused my work on the fourth installment of The Black Diamond and did not prepare January’s normal blog. Beginning with the new year, I have resumed my writing work. Don’t worry! It was just a brief break. I went on vacation a few days after Christmas and return soon. I will have a normal blog for you guys next month and in that blog, I promise I will go into detail about the magic of the series. See you next month!
