Time off and Making time to write

Time off and Making time to write

I’ve been silent, mostly, on social media (other than a lot of crafty posts. Sorry.) because after the new year and the election, I needed a break from social media. I also needed to take a small break from writing. There’s a good reason for that – I’d grown so worried about the story that is currently out in the querying trenches that I’d forgotten that writing isn’t about getting published. Its about writing because its what I love to do.

I took a few weeks off, focused on crafting for my first craft show, and just jotted down notes in my writing journal (cause I couldn’t give up ALL the writing things). It actually helped. I’m back on track. I have two stories I’m working on that I want to finish. I still believe in my other story. I love it. But I’m letting it go for now. Its out there. If someone decides to love it as much as I do, I’ll be over the moon (no, SERIOUSLY), but for now, I’m going to focus on finishing these other two stories.

And hopefully I’ll be back on social media soon. I’m not quite ready to come back to Twitter and FB full time yet, but I’ll be back more frequently.

In the meantime I hope your Valentine’s Day was lovely, and that your February is going well. And I’d love to hear about it if you’ve had to take a social media or writing break. Did it help you regroup as well?
