Summer Break: For Real This Time

I’m not sure why I always think I’ll have so much more time in summer. I hear “summer” and I think “stretching out on the beach for three months” when in reality it means “all the work you normally do plus family visits plus traveling plus helping friends dog-sit while they travel.”

This summer might be one of the busiest yet, since the husband is also working out of town, leaving me to family visit and dog-sit alone. Throw in an extra-heavy workload, and I’m starting to wonder what is this “summer” thing that everyone is talking about.

What all this means, then, is that I’m going to take a break from blogging.

It won’t be permanent, I promise. But while I’m taking a break, I’m going to be thinking about how to revamp and change this blog.

I started it two years ago, as a way to organize my thoughts about publishing and be a part of the YA blogging community. It’s been great and fun, but as my own role in YA changes, I’m looking forward to what new things I can bring to the blog.

So, for the next few weeks, I’m going to be thinking about that. And this fall, I’ll be back, better than ever.

Have a good summer…
