For those of you who are old enough to remember what Calgon is, I need some.
I sat down the other day after 72 hours doing what I normally do and said to myself, "Geez, when are you going to catch a break. You've been working non-stop since May."
In writing this post, I had 6 more paragraphs inserted here about what I've done in the last 5 months and deleted it. I figured you didn't want to hear any more about the old house or the other bullshit I've had to deal with lately.
So, all things considered, Halloween, NaNo, the holidays are coming, I've decided to step back for a while.
I'm taking a break. Not only for my mental health, but I have another book to write. I'd like to get it out before Christmas. I also have a book that's been sitting on my shelf in haphazard revisions for almost 2 years. I'd really like to pull that together as well.
So, I'm off. I know, I haven't really been a great blogger lately anyway. I don't comment, I don't make my rounds, I don't know what's going on anymore. But you know, sometimes, these things just can't be helped. I'm a writer, first (well, second if we don't count Mommyhood). So I need to write. And blogging just takes up too much of my time. Especially now with the sun going down earlier. You can't rake leaves in the dark. (And let me just say how much my mother wants her yard done NOW.)
So I'll see you around the 3rd of December.
PS I hope this Hurricane doesn't catch anyone unaware. Stay safe.
