You may have noticed my absence again over the last week or so. I’ve been sick. I went to school once in the last seven days of school. In five days, I left the house once, and that was only for half an hour or so. That gives you a bit of an indication of how I’ve been feeling.
Since I haven’t really been doing much over the last week, I’ve had a bit of time to think. And that thinking has led to me making a decision.
As of today (or the last time that I posted), I am no longer doing the 365 day writing challenge.
Let me tell you, I’m not entirely happy to be doing this. When I started the challenge, I was determined that it was going to be something that, for once, I finished.
But I’ve reached the point where a few things have changed. Firstly, I’m no longer enjoying the challenge. It’s become a bit of a chore. I’ve also become a bit too busy (or lazy, depending on how you look at it) to post daily, or to post well daily. And I’ve reached the point where I don’t think continuing would be wise, for me or for this blog. Maybe I’ll take another crack at it sometime in the future. But for now, I’m done with it.
So. What does that mean for this blog?
The first thing is that I’ll be taking a break from blogging. Due to my absence from school, I’m really behind, and I need to catch up. There’s only a week left of the term, and my grades aren’t as great as they normally are, so I need to get cracking on the mountain of schoolwork that has built up over the last few weeks.
I won’t be back as soon as school finishes though. I’m going on camp for the first week of the holidays, coming back on the Saturday night, which is the 11th. I don’t see the point in starting a new schedule if I’m going to be gone again.
So. A two week absence, at least, and then I’ll try and find some time during the second week of the holidays to sit down and figure out a new schedule. I already have a couple of ideas, but I need to figure out exactly what I’m going to do with them.
I’m also probably going to sit down one afternoon in the holidays and give this blog a complete overhaul, changing things up a bit. I changed a few things a couple of weeks ago, but I think I might change things a bit more, since the primary purpose of this blog is no longer happening. Who knows, I might even change the name of the blog!
Don’t stop checking for updates, though. I might do a quick little update post before I go away, and, if I can figure out how, I’ll put up a poll/survey thing, asking what you would like to see on here. In the meantime, let me know if there is anything in particular that you would like me to post about. I’m completely open to suggestions!
I’ll catch you all in two weeks or so, and I hope life goes wonderfully for you while I’m gone. TTFN!
