It’s getting warmer in Japan, and many news programs have already started talking about hanami. I can’t wait to see the gorgeous cherry blossoms in April.
I’m making a couple of changes to my blog. As you might have noticed, I’m not blogging much. Mostly I don’t have anything to say on my blog that I haven’t said on Twitter, and I hate repeating myself. Besides I already share what I read and my ratings on Goodreads. I feel bad, but right now, I don’t have the inspiration to blog regularly. So my blog’s going on a bit of a hiatus. This doesn’t mean I’ll never blog again or that my blog’s going to disappear. You can still browse the archives, and I’m going to occasionally post pictures and news. Furthermore, if you leave me a question on my blog, I will answer it. This applies to my Twitter account, too. I don’t auto-follow, but I will answer if you send me a @ reply with a question or comment. If I don’t answer, it’s because I somehow missed your question. Feel free to try again. My email is also open to anyone.
So what am I going to do now that I won’t be spending time trying to blog regularly?
Firstly, I’m going to focus on working with my mentor, Kate Pearce. We hooked up through the Romance Divas formal mentor program, and I get to pick her brain until the end of June. I’ve already learned a lot from her, and I’m totally excited about honing my craft and learning more about how publishing works.
Secondly, I’m going to finish the current draft of my untitled novel plus a sexy paranormal romance novella set in Greek-myth-world by the end of April. These items are not negotiable.
Thirdly, I plan to work out more regularly. I’m turning into a couch potato, and it just won’t do, especially with the bum back I have. Regular stretching and exercise make a big difference, and I’ve got to take care of myself better.
Fourthly, I plan to read more.
Finally, I’m going on an eight-day honeymoon to Thailand with Hero Material. We’ll be hitting Phuket and Chiang Mai, and I’ll post lots of pictures on the blog when we get back.
How about you? What do you plan to do for the rest of the month and April?
