Life Just Gets in the Way

I've been pretty silent these past few weeks and there is a reason, or two, why. It has been a very overwhelming summer for me with good and not so good reasons.

Let's start with the good news. . .

A few months ago I was given the opportunity to sign up for my first Christmas craft show. Once I was accepted into the show I got super excited and super overwhelmed. I had, maybe, 10 items made. That is it! And I figure I need to bring at least 100 to the show. So, you can guess what I'll be doing from now until late November. . . CRAFTING!!!

And now the not so good news. . .

A couple of weeks ago my 12-year old rescue kitty, Drusilla, was diagnosed with kidney disease. I was devastated! My childhood cat had lived to be 21, so I thought I would have her for at least another 7-8 years. But to know the clock is now ticking is very hard to accept.

She is currently having tests done to see just how far along the disease has spread, but I know her days are coming to an end soon. I am, though, spending as much time with her as I can and giving her the best months or years that she has left.

With that being said, I have decided to cut some things from my life. My novel writing and blogging about writing was #1 on my list. I just can't do it all. Something had to give.

I hope to be back sometime mid-2017 just in time for NaNoWriMo 2017.  

For y'all who are doing NaNoWriMo 2016 I wish you the best of luck! It is so much fun and you will have a blast. I am really going to miss it this year.

Until we talk again. . .

Moving Day, or Week

I'm going to be spending the next week, or so, moving many of my old blog posts over to this new blog. I was previously on Wordpress, but that just wasn't my cup of tea. Prior to Wordpress I had been using Blogger for years. You know the saying, "You never know what you've got 'til its gone?" That is how I felt when I was on Wordpress. I realized I am a Blogger girl through and through.

I've decided to keep many of the posts with the original upload date. Meaning the posts will be uploaded as 2014 and 2015, but I'll keep a few to post as new.

All of the posts will be tagged with their appropriate tags, so they should be easy to find. But, they will appear behind this and yesterday's post. I hope that makes sense. It did in my head. ;)

I mostly blog about my writing and my writing process, but occasionally I post about other things, like book reviews. I have been slacking on my reading this year. I signed up for the Goodreads Challenge and am way behind, eight books behind to be exact. Yikes! I really need to get with the program. I completed a few book reviews last year, so I will post those with my old blog posts next week.

I am also finalizing the new look of the blog. The layout is almost done, but I am still working on my pages up at the top of the blog. I should have most of that completed next week, as well.

That is it for now! Look for a bunch of posts popping up over the next week.
