Bidding You Adieu (Elizabeth)

Well, this is going to be my last Lands Uncharted post for a while. I'm doing well in school and writing, but it's getting too hectic for me to maintain everything. I'm going to leave Lands Uncharted to improve my own blog and focus on some personal goals. I remember the first email Laurie sent me asking me if I'd join: “If you ever have any interest in doing a group blog in addition to your personal blog, let me know :)”
It's been over a year since, and I've enjoyed being in a group blog immensely. It's great to have people to keep you accountable and to work with other writers in your genre. I'm going to miss everyone, and I hope to pop in from time to time. In memory of my times here on Lands Uncharted, I'm doing my last post on my favorite posts.
