New (and Hopefully Temporary) Blogging Rule

I’ve got to cut back. I’ve already done this to a degree in that I’ve only done one post a week for the past two weeks. That trend will need to continue, since I’m incapable of operating on less than five hours of sleep. Five stretches me to the breaking point, which I’ve already hit several times over the last two years.

So except for those weeks (see Under Heaven week) when I feature an author’s book and an author interview, I will likely only have one blog post up. Of course, if I receive notice of a juicy contest with a deadline, I’ll blog about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, this will allow me time to visit other people! What with commenting here, reviewing there and trying to block out my next story, I haven’t been a very good blog buddy and I miss that. Hopefully, this will give me a little more leeway.

Thank you for your understanding!

    I can completely sympathize with not having enough time for blogging. I hope things will get less hectic for you soon!

  3. Karen Lange says:

    I do understand, and know I support you. Am debating about how I can cut back for more writing time. Whoever says blogging doesn't take time is misinformed.

    Hope you get a lot accomplished. And please, sleep more! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a good week,

    Smart move! Hope to see something new up on the HIstFicCrit group soon!

    Thanks so much for the understanding, all of you!

    Sandy, how are the classes going?

    Believe me, Karen, this was not the route I would have preferred to take. There was something else I would have liked to give up altogether, but it doesn't take the same amount of time as the blog and since I promised myself to that activity,I felt this was the most ethical route. There is the upside of being able to actually return to meeting new people and visiting old friends. ;D

    Hi Vic dont feel bad quality is better than quantity anyways. And thanx for following my blog

  8. Victoria Dixon says:

    I hope so, too, Vicky. I miss contributing more than critiques. ;D However, it will be awhile. I don't expect to get through a first draft until the end of the year and I'll want to submit a second draft. I shudder at submitting my first draft to anything but the printer for recycling. LOL

    You bet, Joanna. I liked what I saw!

    We will all miss you Victoria. I too have been thinking I need more writing time. Keep writing!

    Hey, Rachna. Thanks for dropping in. I got my first chapter written this morning. It's the first new piece of fiction I've written in MONTHS. (Lots of nonfic and journaling, but nothing else.) I feel like I just went for a dance in a rain shower – all clean and refreshed.
