Although you are undeniably few in number, I feel a certain responsibility toward you. I have been absent of late, and issue I would like to redress.
Some time ago, I mentioned that I was creating a profession editing website, and that I would not be blogging as often in the future, but my lack of presence was already being felt here, even then. The reasons are as follows:
1. I was a full time student.
2. I was a freelance developmental editor.
3. I started a part time job.
Since I launched my website, I've barely updated my blog at all. Here are the reasons for that:
1. I was still a full time student.
2. I was still working part time.
3. I was still a freelance developmental editor.
4. I allowed myself to be distracted by YouTube videos of Rhett and Link eating peppers (which are entertaining), the Doctor Who series 9 trailer (which is exciting), and interviews with J. K. Rowling (which were helpful and inspiring).*
But now I'm back! I have reasons for that, too:**
1. School's done until late September.
2. I miss my blog.
3. I like to pretend that one or two of you miss my blog. (I feel imagination must be nurtured.)
4. My break has provided me time to gather new things to blog about.
5. Recent literary events have energized me.
6. I was running out of decent YouTube videos to watch.
7.^ I was starting to feel lazy.
So here I am, back again..
*Tell you all about it soon.
^The number of reasons I'm back equals the sum of the number of reasons I was gone before and after my new website launch. Just sayin'...
