Unexcused Absences

by Lisa Rosen on November 15, 2011

Dear faithful readers–

I owe you an apology.  I took a break from the blog, and in so doing, broke a cardinal rule of blogging:  I left you hanging, with no explanation.

Sorry ’bout that.

I’m glad I took the time, though, because it gave me a little distance in which I could think about what I’m doing here.

This is what I’ve concluded:

1–I like my tiny little space in the blogosphere, and I have no desire to give it up.

2–I do not, however, enjoy feeling pressured to blog every day, so I’m not going to do that any more.  My blog, my rules.

3–Sometimes I don’t have enough creative energy to devote to the blog and the novel, so when I’m feeling that way, the novel wins.  Priorities.

And that’s it.  From now on, I’m going to write blog posts only when I have something I’m excited to tell you all, and only when I have time.   That’s the only way I can think of to maintain some semblance of balance in my life.

So for now, I’m off to clear up a little point-of-view problem in chapter 3, then I’m going to make my Thanksgiving grocery list and wash the pile of laundry Toby brought home from his weekend away.

I’ll be back, I promise.

I was to excited to see a new post today! I can’t imagine the creative energy it must take to write a blog and a novel. Now your posts will be more like ‘treats’ and I’ll look forward to hearing whats exciting in your world. Welcome Back, I’ve missed you.
