Wordy Wednesday – Advantages of Taking a Break

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a little MIA lately. It isn’t because I’ve intentionally neglected the blog – far from it, in fact. I keep opening a “new post” every few days, wishing that words could transfer from my head to the screen, but it JUST WON’T HAPPEN. Someone get on that, ‘kay?

It has a lot to do with the completion of my most recent MS, KINGDOM COME. My brain was pretty much fried. It still kind of is, actually. And even though I had a lot to say, I just…couldn’t. I mean, I could barely compose coherent tweets for a while there.

So, this led me to discovering the perks of taking a break.

1 – I’ve been able to catch up on my TBR list, which was only getting bigger. And bigger. And bigger. I fully believe that in order to be a good writer, you MUST be a reader first.

2 – My house is actually clean. Not gonna lie – “draft mode” is synonymous with “survival mode” around here. We have clean clothes, clean dishes, and food to eat. That’s all I can promise you during that time. What is dusting?

3 – My brain has been recharging. While the writer in me is screaming to SIT MY BUTT DOWN AND WRITE!!!111!!, I’m finally able to think a little more clearly. Because even though I’ve gotten tons of plot ideas during phases of sleep deprivation (helloooo toddler sleep regression), the plots make a little more sense when brainstorming with a clear mind.

All that said, I should be back in full swing soon. Promise. 😉
