Some of you may have noticed my blog silence for the last few weeks … then again, maybe not. I ended up taking a leave of absence because I realized I was putting more time and energy into trying to decide what to write for my blog posts than I was writing my actual novel.
Not a good sign.
Then I took at look at the content of my posts. With the exception of my book reviews and maybe one or two of my writing posts, I don’t think I was providing the blogging community with anything worthwhile. Who cares if I achieved my weekly goals or not? Granted, some of you may have cared very much – in which case I apologize. But I couldn’t help feeling that I was only setting the goals to have something to post. Then when I didn’t meet those goals, I ended up getting frustrated with myself. When I could have saved the time and effort spent writing about my goals and just focused on doing them instead.
That said, my posting schedule is going away. If I have something to say or share with my wonderful followers, I will. I’ll still post random book reviews. There will probably be a lot of teaser posts as I get closer to publishing my second novel. (For those keeping track, I just finished the first draft! Once I do my major revisions, I’ll be looking for beta readers … you know who you are. *wink*)
But you probably won’t see another post detailing my goals for the week. Unless it involves a book signing event somewhere. 🙂
