A brief respite

I’ve been posting two posts a week since sometime in mid-July. This was a big stretch for me: before that I averaged something like two posts a month, and I went for long stretches without posting anything at all. Sometime in July I set myself a resolution to post more frequently, and I was able to sustain this goal by a neat trick: I wrote things ahead of time. When I had time to spare I wrote three or four posts at once, and then I used the WP scheduling feature to dribble them out over the next few weeks.

But, of course, it couldn’t last forever. As of today my queue is empty, and I haven’t had time lately to write any more. The most important reason for this is that I’m working head-down on finishing the first draft of my current WIP. There are about 10,000 words to go on that project, which means I should be able to finish in the next week or two, provided I don’t waste time doing anything else.

But not wasting time means not writing blog posts. So I may drop off my posting for a few weeks as I close up on that project, which is ultimately far more important to me than blogging. After that I hope to resume my regular posting schedule, but I will probably fall back to a rate of one post per week rather than two. In exchange, I’ll try to make my posts two times as interesting.
