I love blog hopping, but with me it's a problem. Once I get started, there's an inner force that refuses to let me stop. And that force can eat up precious hours that ought to be shared with novel writing. Anyone else have this issue?
I imagine I'm not alone.
So, since writing is a responsibility I take seriously, and blogging is something I can't totally give up (I miss you all immensely), I'm drafting me up some guidelines, errrr, rules (even though rules are meant to be broken in my non-conforming world).
1. Novel writing comes first before I even dare to hop on over to any one's blog, including my own.
2. Keep my own blog posts as short as possible. I've long admired Jessica Nelson for her short and telling posts--so want to be like her! :)
3. Don't hate myself if I can't get back to my faithful commenters within 24 hours. I will get back to you either through a follow-up comment, or email, or visit to your blog, it just may take me a while, on occassion.
Does anyone have any other guidelines or rules that they follow to help them fit it all in? Would love to hear them, if so.
I hope everyone planning to attend the ACFW Conference in September is doing all they can to polish their chosen story(ies). The crunch is on. May the Good Lord guide each of us to write to His glory! And I'm so looking forward to visiting with you all in St. Louis!
Blessings prayed for you all and I do hope your humidex isn't as high as ours!
Surrendering to Him,
