I really really love blogging, and I love all of you. This is a difficult habit to break.
So, obviously, I didn't take off the whole month this year, but I can't deny that blogging--writing my own posts and reading other blogs--is interfering with my novel-writing again. I'm going to have to put this blog on hiatus now until sometime in May, so I can finish novel #5 (the first draft, anyway).
I've also got some major non-writing projects going on that I haven't had on my plate in years past. My 2012 spring cleaning is more like an episode of Extreme Makeover. For example, this week I'm working on the kitchen. The refrigerator, microwave, and every area used for storage (cupboards, closets, everything) are getting completely cleaned and re-organized. Then I'm repainting the walls. All of them. Top to bottom. At least two coats.
And that's just one room...
I will likely still tweet from time to time, so I won't be completely AWOL. But for whatever reason, this time of year is when I'm the most creative, the most energetic, and the most productive. I have to take advantage of that.
Until we meet again, Happy Writing!
