I’ve been writing and submitting for the last ten years, I’ve written 11 novels, over a hundred short stories, and a few novellas.
And I self-published a short story collection last year which only a few people bought.
I’ll be taking a break for a while. I don’t know how long, but for my mental health I’m taking a break.
I can no longer sustain this and I’m disabling comments on this post.
I’ve deactivated most of my social media and I need to take a step back and reevaluate whether I should keep going.
I love writing, and I’ll probably continue doing that, but as far as attempting to publish anything, I think that’s over. I have a novella out with a publisher and a short story out, but I’ve hit the point where I can’t do this anymore.
I’m sure my posts over the last few weeks have shown my waning enthusiasm, and I hate that it’s reached this point, but I have to think of my mental health.
