Unlike other times when I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety, I have been somewhat open to sharing about what is going on in my life. Though my communication has been sparse, those of you who follow me on Twitter may notice that I have been Tweeting very little, my blogging is erratic, and I have mentioned being very depressed.
This coupled with other stressors has caused me to reach a breaking point. Therefore, due to personal and medical reasons, Backseat Writer is going into limited publication. I do have some reviews and giveaways planned, and those will go on as scheduled. However, my regular features may or may not appear until BSW is back in full publication mode. I hope to post regularly beginning in mid-October, but that is not a firm date. But the site will NOT shut down during this time…just know that the posts will be limited.
While I am always accepting guest posts and features, I would really appreciate help from fellow writers at this time—reviews (books, movie, music, and so on), interviews (with authors, musicians, whoever), poetry, photographs (single or essays), and opinion pieces will all be accepted. If you are really amazing, you can even submit your piece in HTML format. Just email me at amy at backseatwriter dot com. I will be checking my email, but please be patient in waiting for me to respond.
I would appreciate your prayers during this time. I need wisdom, patience, endurance, and healing. I also thank the publicists, musicians, authors, and readers alike for your understanding and support. I could not do this without you.
