Where did the Time Go?

My calendar says June, but that can’t be right. I submitted the last post in February and I said I would see you in March. So that means it must be March now, right?

Sooooo, what has happened since?

I sold my flat and moved into the ground-floor and basement of a house with my boyfriend and three other people. So now I only have to make dinner once or twice a week, and I can play Zelda on my roommate’s Nintendo Switch, when he’s not using it.

I still work at the same firm, but I was moved to another department, because a third department was not meeting their deadlines.

More recently, I have been writing a lot.

“But Beatrix,” you might say, “you haven’t posted anything since February!”

I know, I know. That is because I have written two short stories for a competition, then two poems which I submitted to two different magazines, then another short story, which I’m going to submit to a third magazine when I’m all done…

The problem is that if I want anything I write to be published by anyone other than me, then I can’t put it on Abolg. So after thinking about that for a bit, I’ve decided that this blog will have to change a bit. And when I say a bit, I mean a lot.



You may have noticed that I used my real name above and not my pseudonym. I’ll keep using my real name from now on, since it will make it easier for people to find me.

I won’t delete all my old posts, but I won’t post any new poems or stories unless I’m absolutely certain that I don’t want them to be published anywhere else. Instead I’ll make more real-life-update-oriented posts about what I’m working on, where I’m going, maybe interesting things I’ve seen. I’ll make sure to tell you if/when something is published and where you can find it. But if I don’t have anything interesting to say, I won’t post anything, which means updates will be “when something happens” instead of “twice a week”.

I want to thank you for reading and commenting my posts up until now. It was really nice to not just write for myself.

I hope you’ll find it interesting to follow me in this new way as well.

All the best,

Beatrix M. G. Nielsen
