Blog Hiatus

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. I'm still pretty active on Twitter and Tumblr, but I'm taking a break from blogging. I'm not sure when I'll be back to regular posting, but hopefully soon. My dad died completely unexpectedly on November 2nd and I'm a little busy dealing with that right now. I'm going back to school on Monday and have a ton of stuff to catch up on. I decided at the last minute to do a version of NaNoWriMo but had to abandon that. Hopefully I'll be back to blogging and back to writing and caught up with school soon. Thank you to all my online friends who have been there for me through all this :)
