So you may have noticed that I have been MIA for more than a little while from this blog and sporadic at best with the posting before then. I must apologize. I was all good intentions and dedication at the start of the summer, but then the travel bug bit me and I lost my head for a bit, took off on a very impromptu road trip and just, well, lived a little.
Here's where I went:
Basically, I went searching for inspiration in the mountains...and found it, went to visit family and reconnect...and did it, hoped to make fabulous parent-kid memories...and succeeded, and generally decided to take advantage of the long days and the very needed influx of cash from my very first author advance (The day I got it was EPIC. There was squealing AND just a wee bit of dancing--something I NEVER do if I can help it, because I am rythmically challenged and plain old inhibited).
BUT now I'm back, recharged and fully ready to re-engage! So, after a little contemplation and a whole lot of re-organizing, I'm going to attempt to put this blog on a more concrete schedule. I say attempt because well, I am ME and generally begin with great intentions, but have moments of dramatic failure! So, here is my proposed blogging schedule barring any major complications such as sickness, acts of God, or general procrastination:
Monday: Personal post--could be anything...an embarrassing moment, a kid catastrophe or anecdote, etc. Lots of wiggle room here, so expect the unexpected!
Wednesday: A writerly post on craft. Something I've learned, struggle with, wonder about, or am working on at the moment.
Bonus Posts: Hopefully every other week or so on the days I'm not regularly posting. I might post a book review from a writerly perspective and/or recommend something for you to read that rocked my world and made me grow pen and paper-wise. These could also include alerts to other blog giveaways, my own giveaways, contests, happenings...my wild card posts so to speak.
So there you have it, my very loosely structured blog schedule for the forseeable future. I must admit I'm looking forward to getting back into some sort of routine...as long as the kids stay healthy...and don't fight...and go back to school very soon!
