As much as it makes me sad to do so, I’m afraid I must go on an indefinite hiatus from The Narrative in the Blog. I am starting my MFA in creative writing in a few months, and will be working part time in addition. Unfortunately I only have the time for one blog, and I’d like to focus on my personal one at this point in time. I may pop in here every now and then, and Ruby and the Moon will continue on my personal blog. I will still respond to comments.
Don’t worry, I’ll still talk about metafiction… it just won’t be the ONLY thing I talk about.

…I will start posting regularly again.
Consider June my summer vacation, even though I’ve been doing anything but relaxing.
That’s okay. I’ll get to do lots of that this weekend.
Happy Independence Day! Go read the most awesome web comic ever, The Dreamer, by Lora Innes, to celebrate!!!!
…I won’t be posting any new commentary this week. I’ve been busy working on my metafictional travel memoir, so this week I didn’t have time to devote to blogging. In the meantime, check out the Facebook group!
See you next week!
(This was supposed to have been posted 20 days ago, and I’m not sure why it wasn’t, but…here it is now.)
Now that I’ve been posting on The Narrative in the Blog fairly regularly for about 4 months, it’s time for a few adjustments. I realize that I COULD continue posting every week during these adjustments, but I’d prefer to focus on bringing you a better blog design, a better “Narrative in the Blog” feel and more varied content while I’m away.
This is what you can expect when I come back in June (or July–I really want to come back in June, but I am getting married that month, so we’ll see how stressed I am over the wedding):
- More content! (Meta-everything, plus musings on structure, genre-bending/genre-blending and writing–more on this when I come back.)
- A new banner that’s actually relevant to the blog (and perhaps an upgrade in style/design/cool buttons so that you can share my posts on your favorite social media devices).
- A cool logo related to said new banner!
- Uninterrupted service! (I will be furiously writing blog posts so that I have enough for three months of posting!)
- Real, actual goals for this blog.
Eventually, I would like to take submissions of flash fiction or short stories that can be broken into 500 to 1000 word chunks. Of course I can’t offer payment, but I hope people will come to think of this blog as a place where they can experiment with genre, meta and structure and get feedback (or critique) from other meta/genre/structure enthusiasts.
Hang in there, fellow meta-lovers, your weekly dose of meta goodness will be back soon. See you on the other side!
Although I had every intention of posting Friday and today, life intervened (in a good way–I had an interview for a fellowship at Chatham University for its MFA program, and a good friend is home on military leave). I hope to have some new commentary next Monday, and hopefully the new episode of Ruby and the Moon tomorrow. I’ve been having trouble figuring out my writing schedule and what time is the best to write and post, so I apologize for the somewhat haphazard nature of my posting the past few months.
