This is my last post before I take a bloggy break.
Last week I felt like I was on a downward slide, but thanks to the grace of God I am feeling well again. In fact, by last Saturday I was feeling much better and have felt well ever since. Thank you to those people who prayed for me.
I haven't entirely lost my love for blogging; I have so much to say and a huge backlog of posts in my head ready to be typed here. But I'm realising that not everyone finds it interesting, so I'm back at the crossroads of deciding what this blog is for. Is it to entertain others, or is it merely a diary for myself, to record the thoughts and events I may well have forgotten otherwise? Yesterday's quote seems very relevant to me at the moment. The palest ink IS better than the best memory because even the best memories forget sometimes. This blog is a great record of my life over the past seven and a half years.
While I was wondering what to do during my break, it hit me! Smack! Right in the face (metaphorically of course). I should be editing my book! It's one of my hopes for this year after all (it seems to be one of my hopes EVERY YEAR and I still never get the jolly thing done). So, I've decided 2014 will be the year of Blog-Free Book Week. Each month I will blog for three weeks out of four and use the fourth week to do some editing. Except to start off I'm to be taking a TWO WEEK break from now and edit as much as I can. Normally the only time I get for editing is when I put Rory in daycare, but I just haven't been doing that lately. I've realised writing blog posts does take a fair bit of time I could use to be doing something that will make me feel better.
Adios for now! Blog-Free Book Fortnight here I come!
