As if you didn’t already notice. 😉

I am a neglectful blogger who scolds other people for neglecting their blogs!But seriously, I have a lot on my plate at this time.

To give you an idea of everything I am working on, I spent two solid months writing a manuscript I planned to submit to Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest due today, but this weekend decided against submitting because it needs heavy editing. I spent so much time working on getting my word count up that I repeat myself a lot, ramble, and flat out don’t make sense. So yeah, I have 90% of a first draft of a first draft.

I also submitted my piece for Round #2 of NYC Midnight’s Flash Fiction Competition with seconds to spare, and I’m dicking around with the idea of submitting to this contest today. I am simply moving away from journaling and towards completing projects. I realized that for years, I’ve kept journals with ideas here and there to flesh out later. Now I am starting to realize that I need to take those ideas and turn them into completed projects to build a catalog that, unfortunately, I won’t be posting here because a lot of places are very particular about pieces that have been previously published.

So what does that mean for my blog? I will still post my experiences, but probably a lot less frequently. But anything that gets published I will link here. Otherwise, thank you so much for reading. I will not let this blog go just yet, it’s still a big part of me, but I can’t update as frequently.

If it’s any consolation, any future works will (hopefully) be of much higher quality.

But now, back to writing.
