ngl i miss when class act updated every Thursday. any chance you'll be getting back on that schedule again?
Oh hi Anon! I totally understand where you’re coming from and I get it. I miss the updating every single Thursday, having something for you folks every week and hearing from you regularly. I don’t miss how stressed out I was trying to get that update ready every single week, or how I felt like there was never enough of me, to both write well and give my students the time and attention they deserve.
I write in addition to working what most days feels like far more than a full time job, and it’s hard, because I love both of those things so much and I feel like sometimes I am pulled in different directions by them. If a student asked me to come to their play/sport/whatever I always equated it to a night of writing lost and then there was so much pressure I was putting on myself to catch up. And now, I feel much more like I can say yes, and I can support them and my grading is less behind etc.
So, I’m sorry for rambling, but the answer Anon, is no, I don’t plan to get on that schedule again. I’m also working on my new novel now, and I don’t want to lose the momentum I’ve got on that. It’s nice to have two different writing projects to switch back and forth between. I promise I’m not abandoning Class Act, but this schedule of every other week has worked so much better for me in my life. I hope it means that the updates, though less regular, are better quality.
Thanks Anon for wanting more, it makes me feel good to know that people miss it.
