This blog was put on a temporary hiatus on August 12, and though it took much longer than I had initially planned, I’m back, everybody!…with some good news and some bad.
For starters, I promise I did not forget about you guys this past month. Every morning I would wake up thinking “I’ll find time to post something today.” Unfortunately, attending a top-rate university has been more overwhelming than I had expected. And it doesn’t help that I signed up for 15 course hours when I was constantly recommended to only sign up for 12.
I’ve been struggling day-to-day, scrounging for enough free time to write some of my works-in-progress, read books off my TBR list, and just hang out with some of the new friends I’ve made. It’s been a difficult road, but I think I’ve finally figured out a proper studying schedule that works best for me and my priorities.
That being said, my time during the school year is obviously much more limited than it was during the summer. I will continue this blog (I’ve worked so hard for it that it would break my heart to give up now.), but some things are going to have to change.
- Though Writing My Legacy caters to both the writer and the reader, it was originally developed to more strictly emphasize writing, through writing-prompts, journal entries, and writing advise. I feel like I’ve gotten way too bookish-meme-happy and therefore neglected the writing portion of this blog. This will no longer be the case starting right now. Because I have less time to write, I have no choice but to cut down on some of my weekly posts. Memes that will continue are as follows: One-Minute Mondays, Photo Fridays, Word of the Week, & Quote of the Week.
- Despite the fact that I’d like to focus more on writing, I realize that many of my followers read this blog specifically for my book reviews and bookish memes. Because I am taking both a literature and creative writing class, pleasure reading has almost become nonexistent in my life. I will keep posting book reviews, but I must warn you they will be few and far between. I also intend to resume The Friday 56. Any other meme postings (Top Ten Tuesday, Booking Through Thursday, Thoughtful Thursday, & Thursday Thoughts) will be entirely dependent on how much time I have available.
Now, if I haven’t scared you away yet, I’d like you to know being away from this blog and my faithful readers has left an empty place in my heart, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be back.
I’d love to know how you guys have been this past month and answer any questions you may have for me, so be sure to leave me a comment below!
God Bless. 😀
