Z is for Zzzzzzzzzzzz
We made it! High fives, back slaps, butt slaps, handshakes, hugs -- take whichever feels the most appropriate to you. It was an amazing April, which will honestly stay with me for quite some time! But it has taken its toll.
I've fallen severely behind with my critiquing duties (sorry girls), I've neglected a good portion of my regular followers as I've tried to be a responsible co-host and get to as many A - Z blogs as possible, I've not prepared for the writers conference (DFW) I'm attending in 3 weeks where I have a pitch to give, and last but certainly not least, I've not written anything but blog posts and comments for a month. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing, but it does explain why I need to go into hibernation for a bit.
I will poke my head out of my cave a couple times. There's the A to Z Reflection post on May 7th I intend to take part in, and a few of my blogging buddies (Emily White, Clarissa Draper, Glynis Smy) have book launches I'll be helping to promote this month, but past that I'll be devoting my time to catching up and recharging my batteries. I'm even by-passing this month's ISWG post and Alex Cavanaugh's First Loves Blogfest, that's how drained I am.
I know this isn't a very smart move, going dark right after attracting some very interesting new followers, but sometimes self-preservation dictates you gotta do what you gotta do. I'm hoping a couple - three weeks will do the trick, in any case I'll be back as soon as I can.
It was a wonderful ride!
