I have a love/hate relationship with my blog

I think it needs to be said: I have a love/hate relationship with my blog. It wasn't always this way. Mostly I've been like this ever since I got sick. I keep fighting it and trying to get past it but I don't know. I just got really burned out on photography and blogging in general and it's going to take some time. I've switched gears on what I want to do in life (writing) and I'm in blog limbo right now.

This makes me laugh because I'm pretty sure I've had a blog "mid life" crisis. Let's see... I didn't blog for 6 months and I changed my domain name. When I finally came back I said I was going to blog every M, W, F and YEAH that went well. Oh and I was going to blog on Tumblr instead. But you know what? I really love my blog. For as much as I hate it (for all my weird, cranky, exhausted reasons) I really really love it and I can't abandon it entirely. So I'm not switching to Tumblr (even though I'm keeping it because it's fun). And I don't know if I'm ever going to get into a regular blog schedule here. Let's face it: I'm a rebel.

And you know what? That's totally OKAY.

Because I'm writing my first book.

And if anything is in limbo it's my book. I've been stuck in the outline phase for probably a month now and I really REALLY need to write the rough draft already.

Now I don't think I'm that interesting of a person but if you're a long time (or new) reader I want to say THANK YOU for hanging in there with me and reading my blog. I'll try to post when I can but I think the weekend might be a good time to post since lots of people like to check in on Mondays. That being said I have updated my RSS subscribe feed (you can subscribe at the top) so you can stay in the know when a blog post hits.

I'm also active on Twitter a lot so if you're on Twitter be sure to tweet me @brandyyyfrank. I'm going to share writing things I like on Tumblr and will cross-post anytime I blog here on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr.

And now, I have a ton of poems and non-fiction pieces to read and critique for my writing classes. Plus I need to start my own non-fiction piece due this week. Hopefully I can make more progress on my character bios for the book. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend.
