Where I Check With You, My Victims

You guys don't mind being called my victim's right? There are worse ways to go...

How are you guys doing? I feel like it's been forever since we last spoke. I hate that my posts have been getting so impersonal lately and I'm thinking it may be time to step back a little.

At the end of summer I was going into my third year of University with no job, no other commitments except for a few here and there so I thought it would be okay to start making other plans thinking that only some of them would come through.

They all came through. And I have a hard time saying 'no' to people.

So now we're in the first week of October and I have a job (yay), I'm a full-time student, and I'm currently rehearsing two musicals with another one starting in November. It's all a bit overwhelming and I'm really bad at time management.

The thing that's suffering most is my writing: my blog, my stories, the voice in my head screaming at me for release. I've let my commitment - my dream - of writing lapse and I hate it.

I don't like that I can't seem to find the time to write just for fun.

I don't like that I still have no plan of attack for tackling this mountain of work.

I don't like that I didn't get to tell you that I'm a monthly guest blogger on The Peasant's Revolt which is so awesome.

I hate that I didn't get to tell you about #VTtoRT which is one of the most amazing things to come out of this insanity.

I didn't even get to tell you about the fact that I'm going to my first ever writer's convention in May and I'm terrified and excited and I have no idea what to expect but I'm making all these plans and getting ready for total independence even if it's just for a week.

It's weird to say that I miss you guys because we don't really talk're my victims. We're about as close as people can get. And for that I am so grateful. I'm thankful for every single one of you.

As for the fate of this blog...

I'm going to be making some temporary changes until I can get back on my feet a little.

I'm going to continue with the Farewell series (even though I did miss this week's) but the Forensic series is going to take a hiatus for the next two months because October and November are just too crazy to deal with dead bodies.

I've got 5 Books in the coming months that I've agreed to read so I'll be posting those reviews:

  • Heirs of War by Mara Valderran
  • Garden of Eden by Kate Cowan
  • Homecoming by Cecelia Robert
  • Magic Weaved on a Samhain Eve by VJ Chisholm
  • Dead Dreams by Emma Right
Along with a few guest posts and interviews dotted here and there. Into November there will be some weeks where I'll only post once or twice and it's not because I don't love you or have anything to say. It's because I love you too much and I have so much to say that I can't bring myself to slap anymore posts together at 2am when I work at 6am and I'm rehearsing until 10pm. You guys deserve way more than that.

So, in conclusion: I'm busy, I love you, and if you have any unusual or helpful schedule/time management/stress relief advice, please share them in the comments.

Thank you, darlings.

P.S. Donations for the #VTtoRT fund are never closed. We've officially passed Koomkey's goal but if you have some pocket change that you'd be will to donate I would be so grateful.
