Breaking my Blog and Blogging about my Break!
I have decided to have a blog break for a while, and have been kind of putting off this post as I didn’t really want to. After almost a year and a half of weekly blogging, breaking off from it felt like taking a step backwards somehow. But then I realised, as I have come to realise at other times in my life, that changing things is as much about moving forwards, in fact, more so, than carrying on with something just because you’ve got into a practice of doing it.
So, my Blog on Friday is now just my Blog, and posts will appear at random, or not, as the case may be. I have the SCWBI conference in Winchester in four weeks, and mine and my co-writer’s adult contemporary novel goes out to publishers next week (EEEEP!) so I am sure there will be things to report along the way. In the meantime, I will be writing, teaching, painting, editing, being a mum, and there may even be dancing!
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has read and followed my posts so far, and to those who have almost religeously left comments, often very thought provoking ones, often humorous, often inspiring and always supportive. I hope you continue to tune in when the urge to blog takes me.
And a thought to leave you with. This was our cherry tree on Wednesday morning…
Time passes, things change. She has fewer leaves but the ones she keeps are no less beautiful. In a few days she will have none, and in the Spring she will bud and have fresh green leaves. Changes need to be embraced because they make life all the more wonderful.
