It’s funny how a break from routine makes a person think, often about that very subject – their routines and and day to day life. My recent trip to England was suddenly able to give me a detached view of things, in particular how blogging has gradually overtaken my life and left a lot less room for other things. I have often tended to follow new blogs in a rush of enthusiasm and consequently have more incoming new posts than I can cope with, along with making comments and replying to comments to my regular bloggers. And the fact that I have five blogs to create posts for really doesn’t help.
The thing is I want to write the sequel to my fantasy novel The Sleighriders. I have a skeleton story and about eleven and a half thousand words written already from a couple of years ago and now I’m dying to get stuck in and finish it, but I know I can’t keep up with blogging and concentrate on the book. And so I’m going to take the winter off, starting today, and return to my new novel. I can’t wait to get started!
A huge thank you to you all for following my blogs, I will miss our communications, but hopefully you may rejoin me next spring when I’ll probably have finished the book. I will be continuing to write some short posts for my Author blog Talking of Writing
Best Wishes to you all and have a wonderful winter!
I’m Ducking Out of Blogging for a while!
See You in the Spring!
