Thank You and Goodbye - at least in this space

It is with a heavy heart that I write my last post here at One Can't Get Over the Habit.

As you are well aware, I have struggled to write regularly here in the last few months. Things have been so busy in my writing and personal life, and I am now blogging weekly over at

I've simply run out of time to blog here regularly, and frankly, it has been really bothering me.

When I began this blog, it was after discovering wonderful blogs like Dani's or Janet's or Fabulous Florida Mommy's. I didn't know anything about blogs and I muddled my way through.

But it was a creative outlet that I loved. And it planted a seed that led me to pursue a different kind of writing: writing children's books, my lifelong dream.

Since I left my job three and half years ago, I have had amazing times and good times and even the odd depressive and unhappy time as I began to question whether I had made the right choice or not.

Finally, last year, I broke through into the publishing world. And later this summer I will be making an announcement over at with even bigger news. But it is news that will be taking all of my time.

Things are going well, but the writing is never easy and it is WAY more time-consuming and demanding now than it has ever been. That's not a complaint - I love it - merely a reality.

I'll still be posting personal things over at instagram, so I hope you'll follow along there. There may be the odd packing pic over there, as I expect a LOT of travel over the coming two years! And for sure I will need help picking out the odd dress for an event! I'm also active on twitter @wendymacknight, and will be incorporating more personal into my writer's blog in the future.

This has been a joyful space and I love you all for that.

Thank you kindred spirits!
