February Hiatus + Your Help + Poetry Book Cover Reveal

February last year was fairly uneventful on the Right Kind of Writer. August that year was even less—only one post published! Both of those two months ended up having the lowest statistics (lowest views, visitors, comments, and likes) in their halves of the 2021. I then realized something else: they are both exactly half a year apart, separated by five months on either side.

So an idea popped into my head. What if February and August are the months where I take a pause from blogging and inquire of my readers’ thoughts on the RKW? 🤯 In fact, the last time I asked for your thoughts was in July, the month just before August. I tossed that idea around in my head a bit, and I really like it. February is when school goes in full throttle after Christmas break, and August is the concluding month of summer vacation.

Plus, I need a break. From my point of view at least, I’ve been lacking and slacking in quality—putting quantity over it. Blogging is getting tiresome, but I still love doing it. So I’m putting the plan into action. 😎

I am taking an official break from blogging in the short month of February. If I do happen to show up sometime within the month, it’s to make an important announcement—maybe I’ll be required to post something for a book launch, or a friend starts up a blog of their own, or something.

As for whether I’ll take a break in August, only God knows what’ll happen in the future, but I do plan to. For February though, expect several changes!


If you’ve made it this far in the post, I applaud you. 👏 But this is where you are really needed! Here, I’ll say it again for those in the back—and those skimming. 😉

I NEED YOU!

I would really appreciate your thoughts and all that jazz on this blog of mine! So I’ve created a form. It’s quite simple and straight-forward, and I’d be very grateful if you filled it out!

Click here for the survey!

Thank you very much! I hope to come back after February with several great-quality, stimulating, thoughtful, and fun posts. 😀



Cover Reveal

Two weeks ago I announced the title reveal for blogger, writer, and poet Laurel Jean’s book of poetry, This Will Not Last. Today, I have the honor of presenting the cover to Laurel’s anthology!

Before I do, though, I like to take the time to give a brief message from her involving the meaning behind the cover:

…if I’m being completely honest, one of the first reasons it’s fairly simple is because I’m not extremely experienced in graphic design, but the control freak in me wanted to design my own book cover, in spite of that. XD I do genuinely appreciate simplicity, though. While writing poetry, I love to use a minimal amount of words to get my point across, and I feel that the cover of This Will Not Last really reflects that minimalism. Also, I really like how it looks like there’s light dimly shining through a blue haze on the cover. That definitely portrays the spirit of the collection!

Now for *ahem* the cover.

Is it not lovely? Allow me to get more solemn for a moment. I see the cover and it gives me a feeling like I’m drowning, a feeling that I’m surrounded and it’s hard to breathe. Then, I see a light. It’s dim, yes, but truly it is there! Even as I’m clutching tightly to my chest, straining for life, I can know that this will not last.

The idea of TWNT is as simple as that. It’s poetry for weary souls, pointing us to the Light—to Christ, and to the truth that this time of suffering won’t last. I do love that. The cover, the title, and the blurb (found here) depict that beautifully.

Here’s another TWNT graphic:

That is all for February. I hope you enjoyed reading, and thank you to those who filled out the reader’s survey! God bless, and see you in March!

With God’s help,
