With the new job just starting (two weeks ago actually), I find myself struggling to get back in the swing of things. It used to be easy, after two years at the same job, to balance out work, chores, writing and life. These days, I barely make my writing objectives and it makes me bitter – it’s not a frustration at myself, it’s me being dissatisfied by my current schedule. I don’t want it to turn into the unhappiness of a year and a half ago (before I started this blog and actively started working on my writing).
I need to find my new footing.
Consequently, I’m taking a couple of weeks off the blog.
What does that mean? It means that Killing Time OST will continue on its regular schedule and so will the Drabble Challenges. So you’ll still have something to read four days a week. I might not reply to comments as diligently though, but I’ll get around to them.
It also means that I hope to return stronger. I want to resume my writing tips and it bothers me that all I have to offer these days are stories and the quickly written “Chatterbox” posts. I’m not diminishing the value of either posts but I want to share my writing techniques and whatnots again. And for that, I need to restore my balance.
And I’m also working on a second blog that I hope to launch soon. Why? Because I need to talk about my job too. That’s another thing to work into a healthy schedule.
So don’t be alarmed. You’ll probably barely notice I’m less present. And then I’ll be back.
Stronger than ever! 😉
