I mentioned previously that, since I have more time on my hands currently, I’ve been planning on adding a number of new features to the blog.
The problem is, I don’t actually have more time on my hands. My work contract may have ended, but I’m writing a novel, doing puzzle design and, eventually, programming for an indie game, polishing and submitting short fiction, writing a monthly article, job hunting, and a number of other side projects.
Bibliomancy, the way it’s currently set up, requires a lot of research and preparation. It’s becoming more tedious and stressful than fun. (This happened to my previous blog, too; I don’t know why I thought having something that would require even MORE work would somehow make it less stressful. Logic.) So rather than continuing to do this to myself, I’m going to try to turn it into something I can care about.
Basically, this means the blog’s going to become a lot more personal and a lot less structured. That might not be what you’re looking for, so if that doesn’t work for you, sorry. It’s been fun, no hard feelings, etc.
I’m one of those people who prefers to start over with a blank slate, so it means I’ll probably be deleting a lot of old posts, though the material may be re-posted later on, especially if it was a post that had particular meaning to me. This includes the T.A. Barron post and the flash fiction contest winner, which I will re-post in a more updated context. The rest will likely be just me, talking about my life and these amazing projects that I’m a part of.
If there’s a particular post you’d like me to keep around, let me know. But I plan on doing a lot of purging in the upcoming week or so.
