the best-laid plans  

Fortunately, I had mentally scheduled today as a Day Of Other Things, rather than a Working Day. This is good, because it turned out to be entirely a day of other things and no working at all. I didn’t leave the house at all over the weekend, but I made up for it in spades today. Ye gods. Nothing exciting, just busy stuff.

I have regretfully decided to take a leave of absence from the group writing blog Magical Words. I love the site, I love participating in it (oh, how happy I was to be invited! I wanted so much to be part of a group writing blog!), but I’ve been struggling to keep up with my posts there, and with the next several months as deadline-ridden as they are, it’s one of the few things I can step back from without–to put it in frankly mercenary terms–affecting the bottom line. Hopefully I’ll start up again there in September, but for right now I’ll just become a commenter and reader like so many other people are.

Arright. Gonna go pack for Cork for the weekend and go to bed. *splat*

There's something wrong with that blog. If you view it with javascript blocked (e.g. with NoScript activated) there's an entire page of suspicious links above any of the blog posts. Here's a chunk of the text, links not included:

Something's not right there.

I have watched a friend participate in group blogs in order to widen her base and hopefully increase sales. It always seems like so much pressure, trying to wedge in that blog in the midst of real writing deadlines, real life, etc. I'm sure there are benefits, but most of the time, I just see the stress and extra work load.
