takin' a break.

Today's Tune: Resurrection Fern

So, the time has come for me to take a semi-hiatus from blogging. I don't plan on stopping altogether, but updates will definitely be more infrequent. I've got a bunch of excuses I won't bore you with -- mostly work related -- but I also need to take a step back from all of my internet activities in general and dedicate more energy toward actually, you know, writing fiction.

I haven't been able to devote as much time and energy to posting lately as I'd like, and I've also fallen way behind in keeping up with everyone else's blogs, which is uncool of me. But no worries! I'll still be around. I just won't be updating as often for an indeterminate amount of time (a few weeks, maybe). I'll visit your blogs when I can! Keep being awesome, everyone!

See you when I see you :)

Hey, me too! *fistbump*

Except I can never be arsed announcing it. I just kind of disappear for a week at a time, then post when I feel like it. It's blogging for the perennially lazy. :)

Will you be on Twitter? Cuz that's faster and easier than blogging. When I'm pressed for time, Twitter usually gets the 10 minutes instead of blogging.

yo ... i think that's a good thing. i'm thinking of taking a serious break from FB/Twitter/social media in general.

it's addicting stuff, but it's also impeding my ability/time to write.

good luck, Stephy. :-)

Enjoy your semi-haitus and GOOD LUCK with your writing!!!!! See you soon! Take care

May your fiction writing go well! I'm greedy - I want to see more.

Karen - I'll probably still be popping onto Twitter on a semi-regular basis, yes :)

Thanks, dudes!

The great thing about blogging is that you get to link up with loads of people and engage in informative discussions about matters of mutual concern.

The bad thing about blogging is that you get to link up with loads of people and engage in informative discussions about matters of mutual concern.

Looks like you've reached that point of critical mass where the benefits of blogging become consumed by the business of blogging — and the thing you're blogging about (writing) ends up taking 2nd place.

When I started out, I intended my blog to be a low maintenance affair, but once the comments trail livened up and the linky dinky stuff happened, my morning pre-writing log-on swelled from a couple of minutes to 10, 20 — half an hour. Which is when it dawned on me — I can't follow all my followers, comment on their posts, feed the cat and continue breathing all at the same time.

So well done you for taking a step back. I'm sure you'll return, and I look forward to that, but for now — happy writing.
