Please Pardon . . . this Extension of Absence

As some of you may recall, I took off the last two Tuesdays to work on my book. Overall, I am pleased with the progress I have made! However, at the same time, I am perhaps a bit overwhelmed with how much more I still want to do.

Therefore, I asked the publishers for a two week extension. Over the next two weeks, I really hope to add even more scholarship to my book, appealing to both the reader and the scholarly professor.

I know that part of this process is simply overcoming the negative critiques that I received. We all have that annoying critic in our heads, don’t we? The one who says our work is never good enough. I’ve been arguing with mine all week and I plan to prove her wrong!

Therefore, I ask for your understanding as I refrain from my normal postings on Tuesdays and if I seem a bit more aloof or slow in responding for the next two weeks.

Thank you to everyone who has offered me their support.

You guys are truly amazing!

Please Pardon . . .

Please Pardon my temporary absences for the next two Tuesdays.

As you all know, it was my intention to challenge myself with maintaining my five posts per week goal. However, as I have been working two jobs every day this month and I recently heard back from the publishers, I’ve decided I that I need to take off one day a week.

On this day off, I will be:

  • Catching up with my grading,
  • Creating lesson plans, and
  • (More importantly) Revising my book, The Agency Games, which is due back to the publishers at the end of the month.

Please wish me luck as I take the next next weel by the horns!
