Intermittent Posting til December

Hello again, and I apologize to readers that I have not been posting more often. My work burden has increased lately and I'm also trying to keep up with a big Nano commitment. I thought I could get back to a regular posting schedule this month, but it's starting to look like I may not be able to do that. I will be posting intermittently as I have time, and seeing if I can try to find some time this week to throw up a few posts I can spread out in schedule. Until then, I may have to post a bit more irregularly until the beginning of December.

Thanks for bearing with me!

A Busy Week

Well, it's been a busy week here at Catalyst. I've been handling lots of client work, uploading tons of content for my new website, and sticking to a grueling schedule for NaNo, which I'm sure a lot of the other writers who read this blog can sympathize with. I've been writing from sun-up to sun-down a lot of days--breaking to eat and sleep, believe it or not--and my blogging has dropped off. I definitely owe my readers some good posts.

Speaking of posts, I've noticed that usually I get decent commentary for what I write--but some posts tend to slip under the radar. A lot of bloggers do a round-up of posts that attracted lots of comments, but I'd like to do the opposite. Here are some Catalyst posts that you may have missed.

Shady Writing Projects: What to Watch For. In which Jennifer offers advice about less-than-aboveboard writing projects after a particularly unproductive skim of the online job boards.

How to Spot Web Clutter. One of the first blog posts on this site, in which Jennifer loses it over a really bad SEO article.

What's the Deal With Bulk Rates? In which Jennifer questions why some potential clients expect discounts for large amounts of work.

Why Creative Writers Get the Shaft: In which Jennifer goes on a bit of a rant about the trials and tribulations of our creative brethren.
