Why I Haven’t Written an Article in a Month

I’ve been busy

I’ve been busy

That’s the answer. That’s the only reason.

Don’t worry. I ain’t going nowhere.

I am still active on Medium, running the biggest Catholic publication on the site. I still plan to write on an assortment of topics, as I have done before.

I will admit, though, that I have been quite busy.

My responsibilities as a solo writer were slim. Most of my time was allotted to writing itself. Now, with Catholicism for the Modern World, I have the responsibility of editing and promoting dozens of others’ work.

Recently, we have made our own website. That has been a ton of work (hopefully well spent (see for yourself)).

Luckily, things are settling down now. The website is somewhat finished, able to walk on its own. CFTWM has pretty much solidified itself on Medium and can grow organically now without much input from me.

I should be able to return to my personal writing soon. Follow me on Twitter so you don’t miss a thing:

Lastly, while I have a list of 20 or so ideas I want to write about (yeah, taking a break from writing doesn’t stop my ideas), feel free to give me any recommendations — really, hit me with anything you got in the comment section.

I plan to publish something in the next few days. Be on the lookout. And until next time, farewell.

In the meantime, now would be a good chance to read a bit of my 13-article series on the coronavirus, if you haven’t already:
