Sorry I've been gone! Here's what to expect



Good morning, all of you!

Well, it finally happened. I finally had to write up the inevitable "I'm sorry I disappeared" post. Already past the two-year mark and just now having to do it, though? Not too shabby, I think!

I really am sorry for not posting much recently. You have no idea how sad this makes me - October is one of my favorite months to write. I had several ideas for fun fall-themed pieces, and I still hope to get at least a couple of them finished. But life will be life, and as usual that means getting in the way of things.

I am in the midst of my last year of high school, which has drained every ounce of energy from the creative area of my brain since mid-August, and so most of my focus has been devoted to that. When I have actually had time and energy, it was used either to make progress on the early edition of Nightfall that goes out on the 29th or to work on one of the collaborations or requests I've got lined up in my queue. That along with regular writer's block? Ack. Leads to a dry couple of months.

So, that's pretty much where I'm at right now. Felt like I owed you an update or three. I try not to just vanish like I have been off and on for the past few weeks. I can't promise anything, unfortunately, and it will be a little while longer until I have something out. Posts will come out when they come out, but as always, I will do my best to make that happen as often as possible.

Thanks for bearing with me. Hope you are having a fantastic October! :)

In Two Years' Time - Happy Birthday, Edge of Night!


Happy October!

Another summer has come and gone, and I am no longer drowning in the hot, humid air. Thank god for that. I seriously got spoiled with an absolutely perfect fall-like year in 2015, and 2016 made up for it with several streaks of 90+ degree days.

(I shouldn't be complaining - it was warm here, but it was scorching elsewhere; something like 114 °F in the southern US, and record temps of 120° - 125° in India and other places.. But I am. I do that. I complain about the weather when it's hot, and when it's cold. No shame. Okay, some shame.)

* All temps listed are in Fahrenheit, by the way. Here's a basic °F to °C converter, if you're curious enough and in need of one!

October is one of my favorite months, for several reasons - and since 2014, I've had another one to look forward to. October 8th is my blog's anniversary; or, in the blogging world, blogiversary. Today marks Edge of Night's second, and to celebrate these two wonderful years in the blogosphere, as well as to make up for my trigger-happy posting with Nightfall, I have a little gift for you. Details and more below.
