Today's post is going to be a personal one. For those of you who have been with me from day one, thank you. Y'all know how important this blog is to me. It's my baby. It's the story that finally clicked after years of having writer's block. It started off as an experiment and ended up as a passion. I learned so much these last couple of years. And more importantly, I've made some amazing friends along the way.
With that being said, it's saddens me to come to the conclusion of wrapping up New York Dixie.
Within the last couple of months there's been some, very random, spew of negativity and I just want to make it clear that this decision has absolutely nothing to do with that. This isn't personal. It's more of a professional decision. Trust me, I was planning on holding onto this blog for as long as I could, but as of recent I've come across some opportunities that will be consuming more of my time and I don't want to be unfair to my readers.
I've decided to take this opportunity because y'all have encouraged me to spread my wings. That was the very purpose of this blog. To learn. The loyal readers know that I've been very timid to dip my toe in the writing field. It's always scary to discover something you're unfamiliar with, but because y'all have supported me, and reassured me, I have the confidence I need to move on. It's so heart-warming to feel your love from all across the world. I would've never phantom that this would one day be a reality for me.
Please know that this is not the end.
In regards to New York Dixie, starting next week, I will start wrapping up the story with a conclusion by/before the end of the month.
In regards to my writing career, I'm working hard on creating a new series. The details are still confidential, but I will be able to share more within the month. Aside from the series, I'm still working hard on my book and a screenplay. This is definitely not the end my love!
In honor of New York Dixie, I would love for you all to share some of your love. Tell me about a favorite moment from the last couple of years, something that got you thinking, a personal connection you may have had with the blog or characters, where you'd like to see the story end, how you envision life for Jonah and Lynn or the rest of the gang. Share anything!
It would warm my heart tremendously if everyone participated. I know I always call out the ghost readers and a lot of you still continue to be ghost readers, but it would mean the world if we could all have this one last writer-reader connection with NYD.
