Taking a Break--Unless...

I began this blog the last week of October 2008. I have to admit I’d forgotten how long it’d been. For the first year plus, I posted five times a week. I lowered the frequency to three times a week in 2010. Recently, I came to two conclusions:
  1. Occasionally, I used quotes that repeated a topic; but I was able to provide a different slant on how the idea presented related to my own writing. In recent posts, my comments have been repetitive of earlier posts, only the words used were different.
  2. I’ve received little feedback from my readers. Now that repetition has sneaked into my posts, I don’t know if what I’m writing is helpful, or interesting, or simply more Internet BS.
Many of my readers have stayed with me from the beginning, and I appreciate that. But, honestly, without feedback, I feel totally isolated. So, I’m going on hiatus with this blog. I don’t know for how long. It may be a few months. It may be forever. I will be posting over at Flash Fiction Chronicles once or twice a month and occasionally on the Apollo’s Lyre blog. My Six Questions For. . . blog will continue for as long as editors agree to participate.

So, unless I get swamped with requests to continue, that’s it for QoW for now. I wish you all good writing and continued success.

I try to read this blog at least a couple times a week even though I don't always comment. Yes I do find your posts helpful. I wasn't aware you had other blogs so I will be heading over there as well :)

I read your blog on occasion, but knowing your talents far exceed mine, and also that your writing is far different from mine, I was overwhelmed by the feeling that I could never be a writer of your standard. I felt that yours was a teaching blog, and my readers already like my style of I should not change. Yet your teaching made me wonder SHOULD I change some? And decided it is not in me. I do, however, wish you more success in whatever you do.
