As I sat down to write this note on Sunday evening, November 2nd, I was reminded how blessed I am by this writing community I've found online.

Thank you for your many emails, comments, and support the last couple of weeks.

I wish I could say I am healthy and ready to return. But, alas, my doctor has further tests scheduled for me this Wednesday. Until we have a clear diagnosis, I remain committed to taking care of myself.

However, previously scheduled guest posts will go forward and some not scheduled will be scheduled in the near future. I have some of my own in the works but not yet ready to tackle a full schedule each day.

My newsletter will come out Thursday next and then again the first Thursday in December. Due to the holidays, I'm pulling back from the earlier bi-weekly schedule.

A reminder about the status of the free ebook: I had previously announced it would be circulated to my current newsletter subscribers on October 30th. That did not happen. As soon as it is completed, it will be in your inboxes. And then to each new subscriber at sign up.

Thanks again for your concerns as well as your understanding.

Before anything else, thanks to all of you who so graciously continue to inspire, encourage, and support my efforts on this blog, the newsletter, and more. For that reason, I feel it only fair to offer this status update.

Recently, I've come  under fire from some health issues which continue unresolved and leave me with less energy than I usually enjoy.

The writing doesn't come easy in these circumstances so I am letting you know I'm going to take a break for two, maybe three weeks from the blog and from social media.

Anything previously scheduled on the blog will go forward as scheduled, such as guest posts, interviews, etc.

The newsletter will continue to come out once more this month, and then once in each of November and December because of the major holidays in those months.

One last word about the free ebook on its way to completion. I have previously announced it would be circulated to my current newsletter subscribers on October 30th. That may or may not happen, and as soon as it is ready, it will come to you first. And then to each new subscriber afterwards.

I bid you happy writing days and a colorful fall wherever you are.
