My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

After Much Thought...

Hey Readers of W.A.W.,

I have some bad news. Well, maybe some of you who have been following for a while won't think it's so bad, since you know I'm constantly struggling against time and burning the candle at both ends to bring you daily content.

Unfortunately, I kind of hit my limit. It's been a month and a half of super busy, 70-80+ hour weeks (with a week "break" in there of 50 that felt like a damned vacation). I've tried to keep up a post every day but all my reserve fuel tanks are empty.

So for now....as long as I'm working 40-50 hours a week before I even sit down to write a word...I'm going to be taking weekends off. It will mean no "short" question Sundays. And some of the menus and old posts will go un-revised for those weekends.

Thanks to your donations, I'm able to work fewer teaching shifts (I'm down to one), and even able to afford some help cleaning the house. Perhaps soon these transition weeks with Sonic Gal doing extra patrols will even out, and we've been talking about getting some child care in for a couple of hours a day so I can squeeze in more writing. Until then, though, self care demands that I reduce throttle.

When the schedule dips back into a more manageable place, I will immediately return to weekend posts. (Revisions and Sunday Shorts).

Thank you so much for your support, and thank you for reading,

Chris Brecheen
