Wow. I probably seem lazy, although I have continued to be pretty chatty on Facebook and have become more visible on Twitter (@erigal80).

There are reasons/excuses. I must say that working steadily and full-time has been a major distraction. I have a bad habit of putting my current work ahead of most other things extracurricular, which means there just has not been as much energy put towards things like, oh, my passions as there could have been.

Furthermore, as of the last two weeks, I have been full throttle within a thus-far fantastic publishing intensive program at Ryerson University. It simply requires more focus and there is less room for procrastination.

That being said . . . this is exactly why I am making more room in my life for blogging and creating my own work. Being back in school, in a program which is directly up my alley, is the perfect incentive to do exactly those things that I love (eg. writing, books, writing about books, sharing information) and to make this work front and centre. I feel like I have a new compass now.

Over the long weekend, I will be dusting things off (clearing cobwebs, changing the curtains, that sort of thing) and getting back into a more regular pattern of posting, linking and writing. Thank you for joining me on my new journey . . .
