Yeah, as you may have gathered, I haven't been writing much lately. This is due to a number of reasons.
1] I'm currently swamped with coursework at college and that doesn't leave me enough time to keep up with my blogging work.
2] I have a job, technically! I now contribute news stories for video game website RobotGeek, primarily on a Monday but also randomly throughout the week. Why not visit the site and show me some support? My articles are under my real name: Callum Petch. Again, this takes up quite a bit of my time and leaves little time for blog work.
3] I've just lost my USB pen drive and all of the work done in the last two weeks has gone too (and a tonne of work has been done in those last two weeks). So I need to work around the clock getting all of my work re-done. Not fun.
4] I'm tired. If I'm honest, I'm tired of writing about movies. Having written a blog at least once almost every week for the last year and a bit, it's gotten me a bit burnt out. I'm not as excited or interested in writing about movies any more. For the last 2 weeks, I've gotten up a document to write the UK Box Office Report or review The Muppets or Chronicle and... just let it sit. I'm just not feeling it anymore. Which brings me to
5] I'm taking a hiatus for a few months. I'm going to focus on my college work and on my job and let my film blogs just sit for a while. I may, at least, produce a new Month In Movies every month to keep this blog from totally dying, but other than that, no more blogs. I still love movies, I still love talking about movies, I still love this site and I still love this community (which is, no word of a lie, the nicest community I have ever come across on the Internet). I just need some time off from writing about them every single week of the year.
I'll come back on a permanent basis at some point, but will definitely return in the summer, most likely July. Fully refreshed and ready to recommit. Hopefully. I hope you all understand.
This isn't a goodbye. This is a see you soon.
And now: singing chickens.
