Not sure about this

I'm really not sure about this blog. I have a lot of things going on and most of them are going on in other places. I feel a little nostalgic about this blog because I started it as an emotional purge several years ago, and I don't really want to say goodbye to it. Even though I deleted all those posts. Haha.

But seriously. Most of my developments, career-wise, are with DawgArt. So I report there. And also with writing. So I report the writing stuff here. Plus I started that mommy blog. That's three blogs. THREE to update weekly. And I've been doing it. Mostly.

So I'm not sure about this little corner of cyberspace. Should I just give it all up? Should I just say, "Thank you, somethinglikeart, you have served a purpose, but now we must go our separate ways? Or should I hang onto it? I mean, I started TreadingWords because I needed a place to document the developments in writing. I suppose I could add the illustration stuff there. Since they will be combined anyway in the novel.

Yes, the novel is progressing again. After the release of my first short story collection, and much work on the second collection, which should be done by the end of this week, I have jump-started the novel. It was in a coma for about a year. And I promised myself I wouldn't feel guilty about it. But after being invited to read the first chapter aloud at an event last summer and being asked by several people in the audience if the book would have illustrations, I decided that it would. Yes, of course, why not? Why not, as Geary would say, make things harder for myself?

So I'm not sure what I'll do with this blog. The title is rad. And I started to discover the real me here. So it's an important place.

This is a weird post. I'm going to go read a book.
