You know what? I just love this theme. I've missed it. And why, you may ask, am I changing it again? Because I'm schizoid. And because that other one was just too hard to tweak, and I never did get it just right. And because this one fits my personality and mood better. And because I'm thinking of going on hiatus, so I want something less dynamic.

The hiatus thing... Well, you may have heard Moonrat is, sadly, closing her publishing blog. A lot of the reasons she gave for the closing sort of matched up with why I want to change direction here. I've run into the thing most bloggers do, and that's the repeating-myself thing. The blog as it is doesn't fit my needs or goals now. It got me thinking it would be a good thing to close this one down and start from scratch, but I'm too much of a coward. Then Sarah suggested a very long hiatus to give me some distance, and that sounded like just the right thing.

I'm not ready to do it today, because when I go I think I'll be dismantling the whole website. Not even sure why I decided I needed to post about it. I guess I'm just thinking out loud, the same reason I always post, really.

  1. good luck to you too, Sherri, whatever you decide.

  2. Sherri, you really have to do whatever is best. Your writing - as I know you've heard me say before -- is SO damn good...I don't know...maybe it would be best to put all of your creative energy into your book writing career at this point, and perhaps come back to a blog once your first book is published and you can make it a part of your author website instead. All I know is your writing just keeps getting better and better, and I want to see your books on the shelves. Whatever it takes to get that done, do it!

  3. That's exactly what I was thinking, Claud. Lay low for a while, spend my energy in the authorly direction. I've been thinking I want to blog for my career, but the truth is that I just don't have anything to talk about right now. Thanks for your support. :)

  4. Your writing deserves your energy. Many of us like to know you're here and stay in touch, but there are other outlets for that (facebook!). I know how you feel. Whatever you do, keep writing your novels. Keep on. We're here for you whether you blog or not.

  5. Thanks, dear Marta. I really do feel that. I'm waffling as to how I should spend any leftover energy. Blog articles get you lots of search hits, but I reach more relevant people through FB and Twitter. Blogging is all ego for me, seeing those hits and sitting in my niche while people come to me. That right there would be a good reason to stop. I'm coming at it from the wrong angle.
