As I wrote in 2014, this year I’m taking a sabbatical from blogging. The mystery photos will continue and Mary Mallory will be writing Hollywood Heights as usual. But the anniversary of Elizabeth Short’s death seemed to be an appropriate date to begin my year off from daily blogging.
As a reminder, I always prune my roses on Jan. 15 in memory of Elizabeth Short.
See you in a year.
April 15: Three months into the sabbatical, I can say that I’m making progress. I’m not terribly superstitious, but I don’t want to jinx myself so I won’t say too much more. I’m pleased with what I have, although it’s much different than what I expected. I’m tempted to post a sample. But not yet.
July 29: Elizabeth Short’s birthday seems to be an appropriate date to announce that after spending six months on the book, it clearly won’t be done in a year and that my sabbatical will have to continue. I like the progress that I have made, but at this point, it now seems premature to say when the sabbatical will end. Thanks for your patience and continued support.
