A little over a year ago, there was an email in my inbox from Victoria Vane inviting me to join her and some other fabulous authors in creating a new blog called Embracing Romance. I was surprised she even knew of me and honored by the invitation.
It’s been a great year getting to know my sister Embracing Romance authors and writing some fun—and a few sad—posts. This will be my last one, though. I have turned in my resignation (is that what you say when you leave a blog?), as my life is about to take a drastic change.
My husband retires next month, and after years of having Monday through Friday to myself, I will suddenly have him home every day. I’m happy for him, he deserves this time in his life, but (God forbid) he likes to talk to me. Yeah, I know, just crazy. I’m used to hours of solitude to write, and he’s like a cat…doesn’t like to be ignored. The other day, he came home early and stood at my office door talking. I was trying to finish up a proposal I needed to get to my agent, and I told him to go away (well, I said it nicer than that). Not five minutes later, I started getting emails from him from the living room. See what I mean about being like a cat?
That’s not exactly the reason I’m leaving Embracing Romance. Our dream has always been to travel when Jim retires, and working toward that goal, we bought a motorhome a few years ago. For at least the next two years, we will be on the road traveling this beautiful country of ours. I won’t always have Internet, so that would make me unreliable to the blog. Also, I will still be writing, and since we plan to do a lot of sightseeing, I’m thinking it will be all I can do to keep up with my deadlines.
I don’t want to say goodbye because I’m hoping I’ll be invited back to do an occasional guest post, thus I’m saying so long for now.
