I have regretfully decided to take a leave of absence from 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 with my work deadlines, I’ve been struggling to keep up with my posts here. Discovering I’d lost the originals for the voice class I taught, which had been going to be my notes for the series posted here, sort of broke the camel’s back; I just don’t have the time or mental capacity right now to reconstruct them. With that realization came the follow-on realization that out of my various commitments, MW is one of the very few I can step back from for a while without being in breach of any sort of contract, so for the time being, I’m going to do that.
Hopefully I’ll start up again in September, but for right now I’ll just become a commenter and reader like so many other people are. I do look forward to continuing to talk to people on the site!
