Since 2008 I’ve been consistent of one thing with this blog, and that is shutting it down every couple of years. It’s not something I plan ahead. For one reason or another I found it necessary to do so. It breaks my heart. But, it’s time to do it again.
As most of you know, I’m writing a novel and I’m finding it difficult to keep up with the novel and this blog at the same time. It’s not a time issue. I’ve been good at writing the blog on the weekends and my manuscript during the week. The problem is anxiety. I’ve been dealing with anxiety more over the past year than I have in the recent past. Obligations are difficult for me. My manuscript is a heavy obligation and this blog is a heavy obligation. To put it simply, my primary obligation, my novel, is more difficult because of my obligation writing this blog. It was a difficult decision.
So far, I’ve always returned to the blog after I take a break, and I guess this will likely be the same. I don’t know whether I’ll post about once a month, if the spirit moves me, or if I will take a complete hiatus and write no posts until I return. I’m going to play it by ear. Either way I won’t be around much. For you other bloggers out there, I will try and stay in touch reading your blogs as much as I can.
Thank you to all my readers.
