Relaxing My Schedule For Fanfiction

My apologies to readers, but I’m going to have to stop releasing a review every week.

Things I want to do more have been piling up over the last couple of months and re-reading fics I know to meet my standards for this blog is starting to feel like a real chore when it takes up leisure time I’d rather spend…

  • Catching up to all of the professional-quality print sci-fi and fantasy that has accumulated on my TODO list while I was hooked on fanfiction.
  • Playing various computer and console games that I wanted as a kid but never owned.
  • Reading various non-fiction books.
  • Programming useful utilities, such as a free alternative to Scrivener and a DOS installer builder for retro-hobbyists.
  • Reading new fanfics that may or may not be worth reviewing here when I’m too tired to feel like taking notes.

I do still have fics on my “to review” list, and I’ll also try to review the print novels I read, but getting back into reviews began as just polishing up notes I was taking for my own reference, and and obligating myself to do it (especially on a schedule) has been draining the enjoyment out of my leisure time.

That said, I do have a Harry Potter review about half done right now, so I’ll try to get that done before I move on to reading something else.
