Bon Voyage


Farewell (Photo credit: KatinkaBille)

Well, the truth is, this blog is going on hiatus.  Not saying I won’t be back (if not here, than elsewhere, in a different blog); just saying that this has run its course for now.  Time is scarce for me, spare time doubly so.  I’m busy taking care of my mom and pursuing some altogether serious writing and there are only so many hours in the day and still have time left over to kiss my husband goodnight.  So…

THANK YOU.  You have been unfailingly supportive, incredibly loving, breathtakingly honest.  I won’t be far away….just at the end of the email address should you care to keep in touch.  But for now, it’s time to move on.



About Melissa Crandall

Longer ago than I care to admit--although I will--I cut my writing teeth on fanzines and media tie-in novels. Since then, I've moved on to narrative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and essays. I write to explore and understand the world around me, the things I see and experience nearby or from a distance. If I shake myself up, cool. If I shake you up, even better. Not gratuitously--what's the point in that?--but to set what I know, or think I know, on end and realize, "Well, doesn't it look different from this side!" My work is neither sexually explicit nor graphically violent. Let's face it - your imaginations will come up with things far worse than anything I could write, no matter how descriptive. Besides, it's just not my thing. I live in Connecticut with my supportive husband Ed, a cat named Ruby who might just think she's a dog, and an epileptic Australian shepherd named Holly who isn't quite certain anymore who she is, except she knows she loves her mommy.

    Wish you would rethink leaving. I do understand your reason’s but you give so much to so many that really need you. There will be a huge empty spot for those who think you are the best!!!! Hope that I can find you if you do return.
