My bags (how cool are THESE that my hubby bought me for my birthday this year?) are packed!
The last three years have been thrilling and blessed—they’ve also been overwhelming and SO workaholic that I’ve been barely able to keep up (and yes, the blog is the first thing that goes to the wayside). Couple that with some personal and health issues, and the fact that I haven’t been on a “real” vacation since 2018 (one that wasn’t a writer’s retreat, which is fun, yes, but also, work)… I’m burned out. It’s time for what I think of as a hard reset. No writing, no editing, no work of any kind, no THINKING about writing, editing, or work of any kind. After polishing and subbing one last short story before I shut everything down, it’s brain erasure time, people!
So, I’m off to visit my friend Michele in Florida, and we have a whole week of NOTHING planned. The pool, lunch at a Tiki bar with a fellow writer (okay, we’re doing some Insta/promo pix, but we’ll be drinking while we do it, so that’s not work except making sure I don’t look like a slob), and other than that, hanging out. Except for maybe an airboat ride to fossil hunt if the weather cooperates (and if we don’t just decide that doing nothing is better on that particular day).
I will have some VERY big announcements I haven’t yet made here on the blog because I’ve been too busy to get to it, so there’s a chockablock of good news coming your way.
Stay tuned, have a great week, and see you on the flip!
