So I've been playing with the wording: long-term hiatus, extended leave, sabbatical, retirement, deep sleep.
My three years of writing this blog are among the most rewarding in my life. This little corner of the webworld has given my writing a double-shot of incentive and adrenalin. More important, I've forged friendships with the most incredible people.
But the fact is, it's time for me to focus on other things--and for now, this blog isn't one of them.
I'm not sure what the future holds for this space, or when I might return here with similar musings or else an entirely new incarnation. Never say never. (Yes, as soon as the floodgate of writing responsibility is released, the cliches come rushing out...)
My writer friends can rest assured that I'll still be dropping by your places. And I hope the rest of you will friend me on Facebook or drop me an occasional line. Plus, be sure to subscribe by email here for any future possible posts--just in case, three months from now, I have an itch to scratch.
Thanks to every one of you for reading, commenting, and being a weekly part of my world.
So long, for now.
