Wakey Wakey!

Why, hello there, lovelies. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Remember that whole grand plan to make three posts a week no matter what and really buckle this blog thin down? Yes, well, I’m kicking it out the window. It worked for a spat of time, but, really, I should know better by now than to think that I can wrangle some sense of order to my life. So I took a break to consider my next reinvention of the bloggerly wheel. After all, today is my 31st birthday; what better time for a renewal and a refocus and a blah blah blah?

Ultimately, I was still writing at least a page a day, and that is what matters in the long run. Not how many posts I make, or how many blogs I read, or even how many Facebook likes or retweets I distribute, but the writing itself. That will once again be my main focus, because how could it not? Even when I try to let other things be important, too, the writing always takes over. So things may be quiet here, but I assure you, there's the sound of a pen scratching on paper filling that silence elsewhere.

It's back to just posting when I feel inspired and when I have time; I'm hoping to continue with reviews and recipes and the occasional promotional post as well, but it'll just be a little more spontaneous. Most of my energy has been channeled into my writing. Lots of new stories floating around in my head right now that I've got to wrangle onto paper, not to mention finishing up with Heartless, the draft of which is nearly finished. (HOORAY!!)

So, I just wanted to break the silence, inform everyone that I’m still alive and kicking, and that the recharge has done me a lot of good and I’m ready to pursue another year, hopefully filled with a lot of great writing and some great reading and whatever great things might be out there.


  1. First, Happy Birthday! Mine’s tomorrow.

    I’ve been posting every day (sometimes more) for nine months, and I know it’s tough to come up with every day, or even three times a week. It’s hard to write and blog at the same time, too. Glad you’re doing well and don’t sweat the blog thing.

  2. I’ve been trying to gradually add posts that aren’t ROW80 updates until I can finally get back to blogging as often as I used to. I miss the interaction, and when I don’t blog for awhile, I don’t get as many comments when I do post. I need to build that audience back up.

    Happy birthday!
