Summertime has always been my least productive time to write.

I don’t know what it is about the summer days, but my ideas seem to dry up with the heat. I just don’t know what to write about. Added to that, this summer has been a volatile time, changing jobs, family stress, worry about finances. Needless to say, my blogging has fallen to the back burner in the past three months or so.

I’ve still been writing, though. I’m over a Bedlam Magazine once a month or so, My newest article over there is about my cynicism fatigue and leaning into hope. I’ve also had a few guest posts out there, one for Micah Murry on three things I learned about blogging (by not blogging) and one for Seth Hains about recovering from the addiction to chaos.

I’ll get back to blogging here soon. I have some ideas in the works already. Mostly, I wanted to tell you I’m not dead, just quiet for now, like I am every summer. I’m looking forward to fall and getting back into the rhythm of writing for this space.
