Posting Resumes May 27! + Response to Reader Survey


Well hello! It's fantastic to be back.

It's been a while - just about three days shy of two months, plus all that time before my break where I couldn't get much of anything out. I just want to say thank you again for being patient with me during this time. I'm quite excited to get back into the swing of things, which I'm happy to confirm will be starting back up in a mere couple of days.

These are also the last two days to get your response in for my Reader Survey, also, if you've not done so yet but wish to answer a few brief questions to let me know how things are going. This will close when I officially return on the 27th. I've gotten several wonderful responses, and I thank those of you who have taken the time to send me your feedback!

No New Posts Until Late May/June

-------------------------------
Update (5/27/17): Reader Survey is now closed!

Update (4/5/17): Please consider taking my brief Reader Survey, available for you to fill out at any time during my post hiatus! Just a few basic "How are things?" questions that will help me to keep your experience here a positive one. Anyone is welcome to take it! Thank you!
(Closes when I return from break.)

Spring greetings to all of you!

It has been a ridiculously long time since my last post that contained any real content. On February 23rd, I put out my General Updates & A Few Snippets post, but one has to go all the way back into January to find "Truce," my last (relatively) finished work.

As I've said before, I don't like just disappearing. I try my best to keep you all updated without cluttering your feeds and inboxes with update post after update post (this is where Twitter comes in handy - I was never a fan of tweeting, until I realized how useful it was for those little updates), and I've tried to get something out whenever possible. But, obviously, that hasn't been much, and I don't see that improving for at least a couple of months.

So, with that in mind, I thought I'd just go ahead and pause all blog postings until late May, early/mid June, when I'll be graduated from school and able to return to a decent schedule.

Some things I'd like to note:

  •  I'll have a small stash of poems and a short story or two ready to post within the weeks following my May/June return. They're already written, I just can't post them until I'm out of the class they were written for, and until then I'll be doing some revision. This at least assures a steady stream of new content for a little while after!
  • During this time, you can still reach me through blog comments, email, and my social media. I'll still be around, just not posting! Feel free to contact me if you have any need.

Best wishes to thee and thine,

See you in May or June!

    General Updates & A Few Snippets


    Hello there! Ay, it's been too long since I've been able to say that!

    How are you? How's life treating you? Go on and tell me something exciting that's happened in your life since we last spoke! Or perhaps something not so exciting. The not-so-exciting moments are as much a part of us as the great and the good.

    Back in October I posted a small little update to explain my absence and to provide some idea of what to expect in the near future, and I thought I'd put out another one since it's been more than a month now without a new post. This one, however, includes a bit more information that I hope will take the edge off the long wait.. Or maybe I'll just make it worse, who knows.

    This new information, however, includes general updates relating to the blog, as well as a few snippets from some of my current works-in-progress. All of which, I should note, are very early in the process and subject to change. Still - you can see what's been going on, what you can likely expect from me, and all that! Who doesn't enjoy a quick peak behind the curtains, hm?

    A New Year's Thank You #3



    ¡Bienvenido, 2017!

    Sorry, Spanish on the brain. How is the new year treating you so far? Do you see good things to come? Let's hope so!

    With the dropping of balls, the lighting of fireworks, and neighbors firing off weapons that are most certainly illegal, we say farewell to another year, and one many either simply won't miss at all or have mixed feelings towards (I'm in this group). 2016 was an interesting year, no doubt about it - personally, it was overall uneventful, but so many things went on around us.
