Hey there. I’m going to be blunt and honest about this: there’s a lot of you here. There’s only one of me on this blog. I really appreciate that you all trust me enough to ask me about so much for your work, but it’s getting to be a bit much for me. I went from getting maybe a few asks a week, a combination of prompt requests and tips/advice request to getting anywhere between three and a dozen asks a day. That takes up a lot of my time and energy. Not only are there many, but plenty of these asks could as easily be answered by Googling or researching the same question.
I used to be excited about opening my inbox and helping you all out. Now, I’m beginning to become a bit resentful about it. I don’t want that, and I’m sure neither do you all. I know that you guys have honest intentions and just want help. I understand that. I just hope you can understand my place here, too. I’m on person who only knows and has experience with so much. Half of the things you guys ask me, I have zero experience with. I write and read a small niche of genres, and in order to help you, I have to take my time to understand things in order to give you a proper answer. I don’t always have the time or desire to do that. From here on, we’re going to make some slight changes.
Firstly, I’m going to start answering asks on a regular schedule. No asks will be answered on Tuesdays or Thursdays. If I do answer any, they will likely only be responses to requests or something labelled urgent. (If I start receiving a flood labelled urgent, I won’t answer anything immediately.) All other days, I will be answering asks in a time frame. (Likely from 10 AM to 11:30 AM and 7 PM to 9:30 PM) These times are subject to change, based on what may be going on in my life.
Sorry if this upsets anyone, and I hope you understand.
