Today is the first Monday in December.
Wow. This year has gone fast! Soon we’ll be in 2018, reflecting back on the good, the bad, and the weird of the distant memory that was 2017. For now, though, we still have one month left and, more importantly, it’s a Month where I am back on the Clouds.
During November I took part in NaNoWriMo (I have a specific update about that still to come) and it meant I wasn’t blogging; hell, I wasn’t even here to respond to your lovely comments. That’s because of something I called Creative Guilt in a post a fortnight back (wow, time really is flying). This guilt meant I couldn’t bring myself to chat, comment, or even take part in the wonder #SocialSaturdays and #BlogShareSundays, because any time I wasn’t writing for NaNo was time I was, in my mind, wasting.
Of course, NaNo is over now and the pressure has faded. Am I still writing? Yes! But am I spending more time blogging? Definitely yes! I’ve missed you all. If I’ve ignored you over the recent month, if you’ve been nice enough to comment or share in my absence, I am now reading your comments and replying. I didn’t mean to be rude, I didn’t mean to leave it this long, but I was swept up in both life and in writing. Two very, very time consuming things.
In the mean time, whilst I get back up to speed and re-embrace the Blogosphere once more, why not check out my Guest Posts? I’d never done a Guest Post before, but then two came along at once! I’m ever so thankful to both Esme and Deb for hosting these. You can find them below.
