so i've never done this before, ever, in the year and a half that i've been blogging, but i think it's finally time for me to take a real break.
that's right, dear friends. i'm going to take the month of August off. i'm getting a new set of edits for book 2 and i plan on holing up in a cave to focus my energy on writing. i won't be completely cut-off from the internet (you'll very likely be able to find me on twitter), and i might pop in occasionally when there's an announcement to be made, but i won't be blogging regularly. (though let's be honest, i've been a bad blogger these past couple of weeks, haven't i?)
there are so many things happening! and it's making it hard for me to balance everything as i'd like. i've been traveling a lot, and i will be traveling a lot all through the end of this year. a lot of it is book-related, but some of it is also personal-related, in that my friends and i can always be found exploring new cities when time and wallets permit. but the thing about traveling is that it takes up a lot of time. also energy. i came back from comiccon, for example, feeling like someone had paid a giraffe to kick me in the eye, punch me in the shins, and insult my entire extended family.
this is an interesting time for me, a time that comes with a lot of transitions and new experiences and millions of things to learn and understand and prioritize. i'm busier than i've ever been and i'm loving every moment, but i'm getting a bit tired, and i think i have to shift priorities for a short while.
so this is not goodbye! it's merely an emotional hand-wave and a promise that i will see you soon, but not every day as i'd have liked.
what about you? do you ever feel like you need to take a break?
so many hearts, my friends.
