Excuses, Excuses

Wow, it's been a bit since my last blog post. I have blogged since that post, just not on this blog. I've been filling in on my sister's blog for a couple weeks while she's been out of town and away from technology.

Still, it's been a while since I posted something on my blog. I think part of that is because it's becoming increasingly harder to 1) keep up and 2) find topics to discuss. Both of those things are a struggle for a variety of reasons. I'm a busy human being. I am a full-time nanny, which is no laughing matter. I am an author, and have been doing a lot of writing (more than usual). I have my Youtube channel now where I do author vlogs and talk about writing things. That last one is what has made it hard for me to come up with things to talk about here on my blog. I struggle deciding on a topic anyway, but deciding on TWO topics (for a blog and a vlog) in the same week is nearly impossible.

All that is to say, keeping up with everything is a struggle.

One of the biggest reasons my blog has fallen to the wayside is the amount of writing I have been doing lately. My focus has been solely on my books. I created a two-year plan for when I would outline, write, edit, and publish various novels over the next two years. It's been extremely motivating. I wrote basically an entire novel in two months. Which leads me to a writing update...

The Tragedy of the Traitor is finished!! It's being sent off to my editors and beta readers now! And now I'm going to focus my time and energy on writing the third Finding Hope book: Queen of Caradale.

I am super excited with my current pace of writing novels. It's been great to write every single day and get a lot done. I'm insanely eager to see where my stories are going and how the Lord is going to teach me through the writing process! :)

I guess this is kind of an apology, kind of a bunch of excuses, and also a heads-up if I don't blog consistently in future.

Happy writing, everybody! :)
