A couple of things have happened in my personal life while I was on break that have thrown a few monkey wrenches my way. Some of you might remember that I had to take an emergency trip down to St. Louis a few months ago. My grandmother(my father’s mother) was very sick and we wound up losing her to cancer during the holidays. My dad has gone to Puerto Rico with my grandfather and some other family members to bury her and he will probably be staying to help my grandfather rebuild. While things are slowly getting better over there, PR is still a disaster and my dad will probably be out of the picture for a while.

Coupling this with the fact that I haven’t been able to reliably and consistently do the podcast(a fact that has been bugging me) has left me with a hard decision that I’ve been mulling over in my head since the break. I’ve decided to temporarily leave the podcast game. There are some pros and cons to this decision, but I think its just something I have to do for now. I’m not completely abandoning the podcast idea, it will return at a later date, hopefully, bigger and better.

This also means I can fully devote my attention to writing, not just for the site, but breaking up my off days with some creative writing as well. EGC was the entirety of my focus last year and so my creative writing projects kind of fell by the wayside. I still have it in my heart to write a book and now is the time to return to it. I still love podcasting and can’t wait to get back to it, but it’s a little out of my means at this point. Should that change you guys will be the first to know, via the website and Twitter. Thank you all who listened to me and my family’s ridiculous shenanigans and stories. I know we aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but thank you to the people who were supporting that endeavor. We’ll be back, but until then there will still be other content on the site to find.
