I know that I have been gone from the blog for a while. I had a crazy month in February with championship swim meets, a college visit, scholarship competitions, way too many essays, and some family visiting.
Coming out of February, I am exhausted, completely unfocused, and dealing with a little bit of depression. I actually have a significant amount of free time this month (more than I have had since the summer), but I have wasted it so far. So I need to focus on what really matters: my relationship with God (reading my Bible and getting caught back up on AWANA), school and applying for scholarships, and my novels.
For the month of March, I am going to take a break from my blog. I think it is really going to take some of the stress off of me, and hopefully, I will be able to refocus and be back for the month of April (or perhaps even before the month ends.) Now, for those of you who have submitted an Open Pen Critique, I am going to try and post those as soon as possible. So don’t worry. I will still be responding to comments but much slower than normal (which is already pretty slow.)
Thanks for understanding, and I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the end of the month!
