Hello! Yes, it's been almost a week since I last blogged. I've been on a "mini-vacation", trying to relax a bit and read other people's books in order to refill my creativity well. I've also been thinking.....
When I started my blog YEARS ago, I did it as a way to get my name out there, to interact with readers and other writers and as a journal of sorts for me and my writing journey. I've thought, every once in a while, about stopping my blogging and I always end up with keeping it going because even though I don't get a lot of visitors or comments, I like it.
BUT....I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. I want to focus on the fifty million stories whooshing around in my head. With my new day job in August, I want to focus on prepping myself for that. With the amount of promo work I'm doing, I want to work on that. I'm also teaching online writer classes a lot. I mean, I'm teaching 2 right now and I'm scheduled for 1 a month for the rest of the year AND I'm already scheduled for 5 for 2014.
AND....I'm planning to start a "blog" on my website that will be random posts from the point-of-view of my characters. I'm really excited about doing that. Plus, I'm still part of a group blog and I've got a couple more I'll be a random blogger for.
SO.....with all of that stuff going on, something has to go. I'm thinking it's going to be this blog. I have a hard time prepping the blogs I have been posting and frankly, I'm thinking I'd rather spend that time writing. I miss writing. I'm thinking I could still post here every once in a while and then tweet about it. I could still give updates about what's happening in my writing world. I could still post book covers and I could still have online parties here when those books come out. So it wouldn't be gone forever.....
BUT....I'm torn. What do you think? Help me decide what to do here.
