I'm ramping up to Warp 9.9 over here. That sort of means I'm going to be awol a bit from the blogosphere.
Whenever anyone says something like that it spawns a ton of questions, so I'll just head them off at the pass (to use another corny line).
No, I'm not about to quit blogging. I love blogging and the connections I've made with each and everyone of you.
No, I'm not suffering from blog fatigue. In fact, if I had my druthers, I'd blog more (and more AND MORE), but the reality of the situation is that there are a limited number of hours in any given day. I'm already pushing the maximum out put so something has to give.
No, I'm not putting my WIP on hold, though I am cutting back there as well. That hurts, oh that hurts. I want to finish draft 1.5 so I can edit it to draft 3.0 and start thinking about what agents might actually like it. Then I'll send it to a new round of betas...and see that, just the mention of my WIP and I'm jumping off the crazy optimist bridge. That's not my usual way. I'll try to contain my enthusiasm, well, at least on the outside.
No, I still do not have a defense date ::shakes fist in the general direction of advisor:: but the whole reason I'm moving to Warp 9.9 is the dissertation. I'll let everyone know when I do get one because I'm probably going to throw a party.
Yes, I'll still be posting, just infrequently and only when I have something to say. There's just no way to keep to a MWF schedule right now.
Yes, I'll still be reading other peoples blogs and commenting as much as I can.
Seriously, this is just a case of giving myself some breathing room. I feel like I've been given four impossible tasks, so I need to find some time.
