From Christine: My Apologies for Falling Behind

board-1500391_960_720

As many of you know, I live with fibromyalgia and frequent migraine headaches.  Some days my symptoms are white noise that I can push into the background and other days, I am completely knocked on my rear end and struggle to carve out even an hour of cognitive functioning.  One of my ways of dealing with this fluctuating functioning is to use my good days to pre-schedule my writing prompts and my older writing so things look like they are going smoothly even on days when they are not.

This past week has been a REALLY bad fibro and migraine week for me and as a consequence, I have fallen far behind on my blogging tasks, especially scheduling your responses to the Smitten writing prompts and setting up the posts Introducing one of our New Baristas.  My deepest apologies to everyone who had been counting on me.  I will catch up- I promise!- just not on the timeline that I was hoping for.

Helpful Hints:

  • It is ALWAYS better to send your writing prompt responses to me by email rather than by dropping a link in a post.  Your writing is less likely to get overlooked and it helps me more easily track what I have already posted and what I still need to post.
    Please use her.red.pen.wordsmithing@gmail.com for writing prompt submissions
  • It takes me much less time to set up your writing if you include a suggested image.  Unsplash and Pixabay are my two favorite sources of royalty-free images.
  • Very occasionally, Gmail does gobble up new correspondence.  Don’t hesitate to resend you writing to me if I have not gotten your response piece posted within 48 hours of the prompt publishing.

Thank you,

Christine
