Back in MY Day, We Got One Blog Post a Day, and We Called It THE NEWSPAPER
Looked up from what I was doing today and discovered it was 6pm and thought, crap, I totally haven’t updated Whatever since this morning, and then was seized by guilt until I realized, hey, I’m doing this for free, and you get what you get. SO THERE.
No, wait, don’t walk off like that. You know I love you. Here, have a cookie. And a pony. There, we’re all better now.
That said, I’m looking at my schedule for the second half of 2010, and it’s, like, really busy. I become SFWA President a week from now, which is mindboggling, by the way, and so I have to budget time for that. Then aside from that I’ve got the usual writing stuff to do, so that when 2012 rolls around you’re not asking hey, why don’t I have a new Scalzi book? And then I’ve got some not-usual writing stuff to do, which I’m totally not going to tell you about yet, but oh boy, just you wait, and then I also have some travel, including a stint in that place the planet hides under the equator, what’s it called, oh, yeah, Australia. Plus other stuff relating to a life that doesn’t involve work and/or science fiction, because, as it happens, I have one of those.
Which means a couple of things:
1. I’ll probably yet again try to impose some sort of structure on my work day, which you may or may not see reflected here in terms of when/how much I post. More details about this soon.
2. In the reasonably near future I’ll be taking a hiatus here BUT Whatever will keep publishing because I’ve already made arrangements for that. I’m still working on some of the details, so I’ll make a more formal announcement about it at the beginning of July.
All of which is to say I’m actively working to balance work, life and sanity while at the same time keeping the lot of you amused with blogtatsic stylings. YOU BETTER APPRECIATE IT, MAN.
No, no, don’t run off. Here’s another cookie. There, there.
