Hey guys 🙂
So I know I’ve been absent from this place for a while and I feel really bad about that. One, because I actually really enjoy writing these blog posts for you lovely folks, but also because I have made promises to you guys that I have yet to keep. And that makes me sad (and a bad person).
In truth, I have been really stressed out lately. It’s hard when you might be/are totally failing your math class because your professor is a nincompoop who can’t even speak English! Well, that and I’m REALLY bad at math. On top of that, I’ve been trying to participate in NaNoWriMo, which has (up to this point) been a complete fail since I have not successfully written a new novel/piece of writing (that wasn’t a super-craptastic short story I was forced to write for class) in almost three years. That fact alone is stressful.
I don’t know what it is. I sit down to write and poof, it’s like any good idea I was pondering on has suddenly become a tarry, muddy, mess of goop and uselessness. IT’S SO FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!
I must apologize to all of you, and especially to my writing partner Julia, for my complete lack of promise-keeping ability when it comes to new chapters of This is a Book Too. I could give you a million petty reasons why the first chapter has yet to get done, but they would all suck, so I’ll just tell you that I’m sorry.
Also, about that YouTube channel I started… yeah, that was also a fail. Due to my lack of both time and, well, ability to make good videos for you all, that little pet project is going to be put on hold. I really want to get another novel written and I’m trying to take some things ‘off my plate’ so to speak in order to de-stressify me life just a little bit. Maybe there will be videos in the future, but not right now.
There has also been a bit of a secret that I’ve been keeping from you guys. In exactly 20 days from today, the name of my blog might become a bit of a… well… a bit of a lie. You see, this teenager will no longer be a teenager, and thus the name of my blog will become a bit… misleading. I’ve been arguing with myself about whether or not the title of this blog needs to be changed, so I thought I’d ask you what you think. Even if this is your first time visiting this site, I would gladly accept your feedback. What do you think? Should the name of this blog change since I will no longer be a teenager?
If you have other suggestions for potential blog titles, please leave them in the comments below!
Oh! Oh! Oh! I almost forgot. I have decided to make Tuesdays my new blogging day, so expect a new post every Tuesday. This is a commitment I am determined to keep, so feel free to hound me if you don’t see any posts when I promised them!
Peace out my home slices,
