It's Been a Good Run


Did you know that Across the Board kicked off in October of 2014? And that I was part of the original group of authors? 

As I look back, it’s hard to believe I’ve been posting articles for ATB once a month for the past five years. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. 

My schedule these days has been consumed with my daughter’s two competitive sports (cheer and dance - which ARE sports, by the way) and her school cheer. She’s hit that teenager status, which means I’m also loaded up with a whole lot of teen angst and drama. If you’ve had to deal with any of this yourself, then you’ll understand my decision to call an end to my time here at ATB. What time I do have needs to be put toward getting my (finally) finished manuscript through the next steps. I’ve also been talked into trying my hand at writing articles for mostly on-line publications. Since there are only so many hours in the day, something had to give. 

I have to say that agreeing to be a part of this blog was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It gave me the chance to not only talk about writing and reading, but I’ve also met some amazing people. The group of authors here at ATB are top-notch and I’m grateful to have them as part of my writing tribe. And the reader in me is happy to have found some great new authors to enjoy!

As a close out, I’ll give you my top five posts from the past five years. 

#5 — Google Search: What if they…
#4 — Quality Control for Indie Authors
#3 — Google Search: What does it mean…
#2 — Winter Reading

And my #1 most read post here at Across the Board is…

5 Things No One Told Me About Being an Author


I will miss my time here at ATB, but I will be following all future posts. Can’t wait to see what this amazing group comes up with in the future!

All the best,
Carrie

Carrie you will be dearly missed. I find it hard to believe that it's been a few years now that we've been writing for this blog together. If you know anything about me I not big on change! I wish things would remain the same while knowing this is not good for our ability to change and grow. I wish you well in your new adventures. I'll be following your work on social media, hope you stop be every now and then, let us know how you're doing. All my best Carrie!
