I'm Back!

So, after a long hiatus (six weeks, to be exact), I am back at the blog! And – hopefully – with a vengeance.

I have several new blog ideas in development, all of which I hope will generate new creative ideas and content for my writing life. 

Now, a little bit about why I was gone for so long:

We all get depressed. Well, I had a couple of rough patches back in October/November, and I have been spending time with my family to ground myself in happy moments. I wasn't dealing with my depression in healthy ways, so I figured it would be best to generate good experiences versus wallowing in my own self loathing. Part of this "happy moments" and "good experiences" journey meant spending less time by myself (blogging, reading, etc) and more time doing group activities (hanging out with my siblings, reconnecting with my cousins, etc).

As a result, I ignored the blog and friends that I had made in various communities, I haven't picked up a book since Nov. 5th, and I abandoned all of my writing projects (so I didn't end up doing NaNo this year, which would have been my first year).

I am now in a place where I want to come back to all of my past creative loves :)

What I have planned for the future:

My primary focus is going to be launching a few new blogs. Like I said earlier, I want to diversify my creative pursuits, and I have decided to do this via creating new types of blogs. The three new blogs I have planned will focus on 1) Literature Memes, 2) Women, and 3) Book Reviews. The first two are just for fun, and the last one is to gain relevant experience with writing reviews (while still thinking about how I should be crafting my own stories).

Here are links to my new blogs:

Literature Spew
The Late Night Southern Review

I look forward to reorienting myself to my writing pursuits and reconnecting with all of the wonderful people I have met along the way!

Also, if you have a book that you would like reviewed, message me in the comments or contact me via Google+ :)
