The Journal, Wednesday, 8/9

Hey Folks,

Well, I guess I’m taking a full-blown hiatus for a week or so. No writing today.

No worries and no reason for concern. I think I’m just a little tired. Doing a lot of non-writing things right now, mixed in with a lot of reading, sitting and nothing.

I think I’m gonna slack off on The Journal a bit too. It had served its purpose on this end awhile back, and I’ve heard from some of you that it’s been a boon on that end.

I’ll keep it going, but maybe not every day. The “streak” aspect of it has become less important. Maybe it’ll become just The Journal or something instead of The Daily Journal. (grin)

I’m also thinking of letting the other URL expire, the URL where it’s physically located now. I think that’s supposed to happen in April. The Journal seems awfully lonely over there.

So if I do that, I might move this back over to the main site if I decide not to post it every day. Maybe I’ll go once a week or something and post it in between regular posts.

Anyway, if I do move The Journal again, I’ll be sure to announce it here for those of you who subscribe via RSS.

I’ll keep up the word counts and all that, just in case some of you get something from that other than frustration and annoyance.

Of Interest

I figured this one was coming. See “WRITING INTO THE DARK: A New Online Workshop” at http://www.deanwesleysmith.com/writing-into-the-dark-a-new-online-workshop/. (You can also buy the book. It’s a lot less expensive.)

And if any of you enjoy reading fantasy, see “I Curated THE UNIVERSE BETWEEN Bundle” at http://www.deanwesleysmith.com/i-curated-the-universe-between-bundle/. I’m not personally into fantasy, but bundles are always a great value.
