Every now and then I see a blog post or tweet from an author where they announce they’ll be mostly absent to finish a certain project.
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve considered this as a last resort for myself.
I had issues within my own head to deal with, struggles with writing, and other things.
But I keep coming back to this.
I have this novel to finish by the end of the year, and though I have my bartending job that pays some bills, it’s not where my heart lies.
I also don’t have the exposure, social media following or whatever as these other authors and we’re told to build our brand before publishing, submitting, or the like.
So, I’m going to take a break from the blog and social media to finish this project, get others ready for either publishing or submitting and do what needs to be done.
It may last until the end of the year or not, but I will check in with short posts about how the writing is going, or isn’t, as well as what is going on with the other projects.
I’m not quitting the blog, only refocusing on where it’s more important.
Have a happy next few months.
