Closed for the Season

Christy started this blog almost three years ago to make some writing friends and share some recipes.

She did that.

Erica joined this blog over two years ago because she thought Christy would be a great addition to her writing team and she (erica) wanted to make some new writing friends, too.

christy was and erica did.

We both wrote this blog while we completed, edited, and queried our first manuscripts. Then we edited some more. Rewrote a couple. Wrote another, and a third. Perfected our crafts and researched agents and editors and writing styles and point of views and yes, even how to craft a sentence (ha!).

We did that, too. Successfully, I should add.

For now, are proud of our accomplishments. However, we have our limits. We are mothers and teachers and wives and daughters.

So are you (subsitute male pronouns and nouns as needed). It's okay to be overwhelmed - well, not okay, so much as "in the same boat as us." No one should feel guilty about that.

The long and short of it is - for now, we are closed for the season. Please know and believe that we cherish each and every friendship we've made here and that we will keep working on everything that's important in our lives.

Until we return, have a cup of coffee on us. We'll meet up again soon.

this is christy's cup. she shares like that.


  1. Aw darn. Well, I totally understand and you both have to do what's best for you. I'll keep a pot of java ready for your return.


  2. Take care. I understand when it gets too overwhelming to blog. Hope you'll be back. And hope you'll continue to stop by blogs. It's a way to stay in touch with your friends.

  3. You'll be missed. Take care! And keep writing! : )

  4. You have to do what is right for both of you. Take care and see you when you come back.

  5. I hope you return as soon as you can. Maybe we'll run across each other at other internet spots. Until we do...

  6. oh, no! I'll miss you guys so much! But I hope you have a good break and a GREAT school year! Thinking of you~ :o) <3

  7. The very best of luck to you both (and you'll hardly need it with your writing, now that you've done all that fabulous learning!). Hope you'll be back in the blogosphere sooner rather than later. We'll miss you.

  8. I'll miss you guys! Luck and smiles for your time away.

  9. Perfectly understandable that you need some time away from blogging. Believe me, I know. I still haven't started up again. But I've never stopped following and wanted to let you know that you will be missed while you're gone.

  10. You'll be missed, ladies. But I understand. Sometimes you need to step back and focus what is really important. *hugs* for everything you've done for us.
