This blog post really is all I can do today. I am thoroughly exhausted and worried, actually, that I won't rally...won't keep writing.
What if I devolve into a Netflix watching, sweat pants wearing, Pirate Booty eating mess of a former writer out of sheer exhaustion? I mean, those Psych episodes are looking pretty hilarious about now. How about I watch all 300?
I've just finished and sent off the second book in my Steampunk Thriller series and I have to say, I really need a break. The pace I had to take on was punishing and wore me out thoroughly.
My worry is that I will not come back. Striving to hit the deadline amid the tragedies rolling in this past six months has really tested my love for writing. Maybe even bruised it a bit?
Hubby asked me to take some time off of writing. Two weeks to repair my brain, he said. Here's to hoping it works.
What do you all do to keep your writing pace sane? Do life events slow you down or do you find solace in writing?
I'd love to know if anyone else has struggled with post manuscript blues. That's a thing...right?
