The bad news? This being the first post in awhile means that I fell very behind on my promise to blog more often. The good news? It’s Lent now, which has always been the better time for me to get my act together. And I’ve also been spending a good amount of my time writing- several short stories, personal pieces, and getting back into editing Painting the Roses Red. I even started writing poetry again under my other alias. So even if it seems like I might have fallen entirely off the face of the earth, I am still here and I have been working on my writing! I’ve also been able to get into a rhythm at my new job and with my new friend groups as well, which makes it easier for me to schedule time to write, edit and promote.
How are your first months of the year going? Did you start off on a good foot or slip back into bad habits immediately?
So, I’m sorry for being a bit AWOL lately. I know that I promised that I would be more on top of my blog postings tis year, and I was really doing so well there for a moment.
But at least I have a really good reason for having fallen off the grid: I’m getting married!
My significant other proposed over Halloweekend (see picture of adorable pumpkin, hand carved by said significant other for the most amazing proposal ever). Of course, this means that the day after the wonderfully romantic proposal I suddenly realized that I’m going to be getting ready for a wedding in the next year or so. And if I want to lower my stress for then, I’ve got a lot of work to do starting now.
Thank you for all of your support and patience during this time. I’ll try to keep everyone updated on all the fun stuff, and I’ll work hard at making sure that my writing work doesn’t suddenly take a back seat to this latest life change. Prayers and good thoughts are always appreciated!
