The Decision Has Been Made

There will be no Camp NaNo happening here this July. I have too many plans for Volume 2 to complete it on such a strict time limit as one month.

There will also be no memes or tags or regular themed, er, things for the foreseeable future. I have a short but intense TBR and discussion posts plan to work my way through.

There will probably also be less Twitter. I honestly love my Twitter community, and I will certainly be checking in with them. But the, you know, random sort of feed-reading that occurs all too often, when we’re really supposed to be doing something else (like sleeping, or writing) — that’s getting to me. It’s becoming a bit overwhelming. Not healthy.

As the true summer approaches (it doesn’t feel like it’s started yet, since we haven’t finished the school year here), there are also other things that will happen — like children’s schedules changing — and the time for new errands begins — hopefully trips to the Farmers’ Market and the park and breaking out different recipes… As I mentioned earlier, I may be around online less in general soon.

But one of my major priorities is completing my Warriors TBR (before the new releases in the fall), and finishing Volume 2.

And I can’t even explain why I feel guilty for having made these choices! Please tell me this is normal blogger/online presence guilt, and it’s not just me?!

So, expect to see something in this space once or twice a week for the next couple of months.

We shall still discuss bookish topics and fawn over lovely cat pictures.

Snippets from Volume 2 may even appear.

  1. You’re not the only one who feels guilty over taking a much-needed break. 😉 A side-effect of this digital age and us bloggers/writers being very invested in our online stuff. But it’s sometimes super important to dial down the internet time when busy summer/life things are happening! I hope you have a lovely and productive summer! And best of luck on Volume 2! I’m considering not doing Camp NaNo either… sometimes things need to be written in their own time. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I’m becoming much too wrapped up in word count, and that’s making me not think “enough” (or not as much as I feel I should be) about things like where a scene cuts and the like. Meaning where in the plot/character arc, rather than by numbers. I really want to slow down and really “be” in each scene when I’m there, instead of getting all caught up in churning out another 1,000 words by the end of the day!

  2. It’s really not just you!! I have terrible online-presence guilt right now. It makes so much sense to dial back the internet time from time to time (I’d be a total hypocrite if I said otherwise 😉 ) and yes, Twitter can be a blackhole for time, so I’m really unreliable with twitter and social media, cos it’s usually the first thing I reduce when I need a bit of time.
