Time Out

So, it's once again that day in the month when I have to come up with something to entertain you all. And I'm sorry, I just don't have it in me. I wish I did. However, I hope you can forgive me. I don't mean to be a whiner, but once September came around, life hit me like a freight train. New school year at my job, new semester at Grad School, the Boy's into a new football season.

All of which suck up every last minute of my day. I remember back to when I posted this entry: Finding Time and I just...can't. Which I knew was going to happen, and I prepared accordingly. I've turned in the next Library of Athena book, and I have the other book out on submission to agents, and I've done it all so that I don't feel guilty about taking a Writing Time Out. Because if I don't, I know that trying to do it all will stress me out to the point of breaking, and that won't do anyone any good.

Hopefully this Time Out won't last long, and even if I'm not writing it doesn't mean I'm not working on something. I have at least two books to plot, and two more to re-write. I hope that I will get some time at Boy's football practices and I've already decided that I will be skipping one once in awhile.

Meanwhile, things are looking up on the agent front. There may be good things to say about that in a couple of weeks. I hope.


  1. I totally understand. I had to take a break from one of my critique groups too for the same reason.

    **Fingers crossed on the agent front!

  2. I know I'll be more productive if I just don't try to do it all and take a break. Thanks!

  3. Sometimes a break is necessary. And remember, your son will grow up way too soon and you don't want to miss his games and being with him. Other things can come later.

    Good luck with the agent.
