Happy holidays, everyone. Hope your 2017 was awesome. I’ve had a great few months of writing consistently on my blog. I’m super proud of it. So, it’s time for it all to go to hell. I’m taking Christmas 2017 through New Years 2018 off from blogging.
I tend to do most of my blog planning for the week ahead on the weekends since I work throughout the week. I had to handle the holidays this weekend. While I’ll be writing stuff, I won’t have time to see any projects through properly this week since I have to come right back to work on Tuesday. Then it’s New Years next weekend and I have to do it all again.
It’s just too much. All the family stuff. I don’t even drive so there’s that much more to coordinate. I’m also job hunting because I really need more money. I know I probably won’t find a new job over the holidays, but I’m sure as hell going to try.
Basically, I need a week or so, ya’ll.
It’s been a great three months though. Seriously. With any luck at all, I’ll be able to plan ahead a little and get my 2018 writing and blogging game going strong. I’m going to do some tweaking so that I can allow for more editing time between my stories. I’m also going to tweak my writing habit so that I can have more stories to submit to literary magazines and sill post some to my blog. Basically, next year will be the same, but different.
I’ll be back January 3rd with a 2018 blogging plan that’ll put this years’ posts to shame. Just the plan, though. No other promises. January 3rd is a Wednesday, I think.
And, even though I’m taking the holidays off from my blog, I’ll still be tweeting on my Twitter and posting annoying selfies on my Instagram. Maybe like my page on Facebook, too, just because. You can also contact me here.
Also, here’s one of my best rejection letters ever. It’s from a few years ago. It’s from Tahoma Literary Review. My goal for 2018 is to write a story that gets another rejection like this.
