A colleague of mine, a fellow writer, recently shared how she’s taken a year off from publishing. Not writing, she was quick to add, just the publishing side of things.
I have to say, that concept really resonated with me.
Especially being deeply embroiled doing the necessary promotion of what I already have published, fulfilling obligations for blog posts, sharing for others and such.
In addition, I’m in the hunt for a home for my WIP romantic suspense series, Brothers In Blue. You know the drill, I’m stressing over whether to insert a comma or not. Re-reading, self-editing, proofing and the like until I can hardly see straight. In short, the process is becoming work, I’m sorry to say. I need to revisit the joy of writing for the sake of writing in all its unencumbered and freeing glory.
Right now, one of four books in the Brothers In Blue series is completed and ready to go, with the second nearly halfway done.
