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

Half Way Point (Personal Update)

Ironically my McKayla Maroney is a pretty good descriptor.
Hi folks.

So I'm probably going to get my latest call for nominations up on Monday, and spend tomorrow trying to clean up my current inbox of doom of hopeful guest bloggers and hopper of those who have written something for us cleaned up.

Remember a few things:

1) This is what it looks like when I am working a day job.

I write as often as I can but blogging is a time commitment, and I'm a human who needs time off and it takes time to write articles and do the behind-the-scenes work that is required for big, meaty articles and even guest blogging posts. (It's a lot more involved than just cut and paste.) I have been incredibly fortunate to get the support from many of you I needed to keep writing and teach less, but this is what my update schedule will look like if I have to go back to work.

2) I'm halfway done with summer school and then we can get back to our regular pace.

I'm as frustrated as you, but the summer school gig pays really well, so I'd be very foolish to give it up. I take a deep breath and slog it out for six weeks. And at this point, I'm probably more disappointed in my update schedule and lack of solid updates than all but the tiniest handful of you, but I do feel sort of like I'm letting folks down. So maybe as much to me as to anyone: there's only three weeks of this crap left, and then we can get back to some serious updating mojo.

3) It might get easier now.

I was writing curriculum and lesson plans for two classes during the first session. It easily added two hours to every morning I taught. It might be a bit less stressful now, allowing me to write more.
