A Little Summer Update

Hey, friends!

I had to check out for a spell. It’s been a busy summer – mostly positive things, so no complaints there. I’m just in a weird space of figuring out what to do in terms of blogging. 

I actually set Grief Happens to private with the intention of cleaning it up and possibly setting up a new site, but during that time we had several rounds of company, dead trees that had to be yanked from our yard pronto, and then my computer crashed. 

I’m currently at our old house with Piers and Wallace about to clean frantically because we have renters moving in in about a week. Yikes. I gotta get in gear. Not to mention that someone thought starting school in August in GA was a fab idea even thought it’s hot as blazes, so there’s entirely too much to do in the next two weeks. 

Still, I’ve missed interacting with you guys, and as always happens when I break, I realize that I need blogging in my life in some capacity; I simply have to figure out exactly what that is. 

I’m going to jet – I’m writing from my phone and it’s time to charge.

Hope all is well, and I’ll catch up soon. Maybe I’ll pull some posts from the archives in the meantime. 

Do you post on a schedule? Are you more spontaneous? What works for you? Schedules feel confining to me, but I’m beginning to see that one might be necessary here. More soon!

    • Good advice! I need to bring some of my drafts to life. I’m having hard time balancing life these days. I’m leaning towards a schedule – once a week would be ideal, but even that seems hard right now. Ahhh. Glad it’s not just me. Hope you’re having a good week!

  1. I post 4 times a week on a schedule but I used to not do that. I post more regularly cuz my goal is to get her another book out and if I’m going to go with a more traditional agent this time I need a bigger following and more content. But for me it’s not just about numbers and content it’s because I also genuinely only feel happy and free when I’ve written. My brain is very busy so I’ll either put my life into chaos and things that don’t matter as much or I can be a little bit more constructive and heal with my words.

  2. I try to post once a week at minimum–but the muse must visit me:). Can’t blog just to put something out there. Go live life and come back to us with stories! I think we all need to fill our tanks from time to time.

  3. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate.
    I blog whenever I need to sort something out or I experience overwhelm of emotions. I just start writing and see where I end up. Guess that is noticible in my blog. That way it is not really a blog, more a diary, but it also never feels like I have to write. Having no housemates apart from a cat makes it easy to do anything at any time. Guess there is a difference too.
    Take care and good luck with all the things coming up. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the thoughtful comment. For me, I think, it’s more about planting myself in front of my computer and spilling out the thoughts. The thoughts come easily; the sitting still and taking the time to actually output the brain contents is more challenging. I guess I just need to do it. Thanks again for chiming in. Take care.

  4. Life compounds doesn’t it? I feel like just when I hit a groove with writing and posting, some big life change happens. Good luck to you in this season πŸ™‚ The blogging will always be a healthy outlet, even if a rhythm is challenging (currently my story!).

  5. I write on schedule (MON WED FRI) but I mean… yesterday was a bust so I uploaded today instead. Might go back and change the date later so it doesn’t much up my blog calendar, but the truth is some days life just gets in the way, and what can you do about it?

    I definitely think I need the schedule though. It keeps me focused. It becomes a habit after a while. Oh, it’s Wednesday? Time to write! Even if I don’t particularly feel like it. Even if I have no ideas. Even if I’m feeling listless and bored. It’s still time to write!

    Hope life slows down for you soon!
