No, I haven't abandoned Shizuka Blog. I actually have plenty of ideas for this space and the other three sites I write for; I'm just lacking the time and focus to write them. I've promised my agent another manuscript in January, and since I'm only three chapters into my current project, the vast majority of my writing time in December will be spent by Novelist Jared (as opposed to Blogger Jared).
I'm sure I'll post a few things here in that time, though, as I consider this space important, and I don't want it to languish.

Thanks to all who keep stopping by even though they keep finding the updates less and less frequent.
