So we're deep into August, and the summertime is swooshing by. Soon (and very soon!) we're going to be in the throes of BAKER'S DOZEN PREP. Which is incredibly hard to believe, yes?
Keep your eye on the blog for EARLY INFO on the Baker's Dozen. And start polishing your loglines!
As for me--I'm taking a writing hiatus. Not a blogging hiatus, mind you; I'll still be here. But I've got a substantial amount of editing (for Authoress Edits) lined up for the rest of this month, and, well, also I simply need a break.
I mean, really. And for the first time, I am allowing myself to do this without keeping a pinky finger on my keyboard. (You all know what I mean. Right?)
I'm drained. It's a long journey, and my water bottle has run dry. I've just finished an emotionally difficult revision, and I'm not sure what to do next. So I'm putting it all aside.
Probably this is my smartest move in a long time. At least, I hope so! And yes, I know--many of you have counseled me before in the wisdom of taking a break. Thing is, I was never really quite able to do it. That whole oh-my-gosh-my-day-isn't-complete-unless-I've-written something kicks in pretty strongly most days.
I guess I've hit my breaking point.
I hope I find my reentry point, too.
Because...I'm a writer. And I've got to keep doing what I love.
So. There it is. You've got my back, right?
You know what's going to happen next. I'm going to wake up in the middle of the night with an AMAZING story idea, and...
Yeah. That's how it goes. Isn't BEING A STORYTELLER such a wonderful thing? I love it--I really do.
Have a good weekend, my lovelies!
