When life intervenes, my blog suffers, because blogging is a passion, but it is also a distraction.
For the last few weeks I’ve had personal challenges, as well as a stint in the revision trenches. But more than that, I think it was a period of gathering into myself, of unplugging almost totally from blogging and social media, and also cutting off as much of offline interaction as practically possible. I went days without talking to anyone other than my characters: needed to be in my own head-space for a bit.
Now that I’m out of my hermit mode, I realize that I’ve missed a ton of posts and publication notices from all of you.
By this weekend, I’d like to catch up on what I’ve missed, whether it is a post or a story, a poem, an article, a novel. So I’m adding a Linky list, open till Monday the 20th November, and inviting you all to add links. If you’d be so kind, leave a link to one of your posts from the past month that I’ve missed or any publication news that I can congratulate you on. I’ll add a link to a published piece as well, to kick things off!
I’ll delete spam and keep the list tidy, so if you want to browse through the list, read and encourage others, you’re most welcome. The link will remain up, till further notice.
In the linky, please do the following:
- Link to the piece/ novel you want read, and not to your blog. I’ll delete links that lead to home pages and websites.
- In the Blog Title part of the Link form, add the genre and the title (For instance: Novel: The Old Man and the Sea).
Do NOT do the following:
- Do not add spam links.
- Do not add homepage links to Websites/ Blogs.
- Do not add more than one link.
- Do not ask me to edit/ make changes to the list. (I edit typos without being prompted, don’t worry).
I hope to have a few things to read by the weekend!
