Taking a Break

Like many, many writers in the month of November, I've decided to take the next month off of blogging. I've never done this before. I think the longest I've gone is a week when I was in the middle of moving. But considering I spend at least four hours blogging every week, and I'm now in the process of writing TWO novels (yeah, I added another one in there this weekend just for the hell of it), I decided I needed to set the blogging aside for the good of my writing.

I'm also going to be taking a little social media holiday while I'm at it (aside from Facebook - gotta stay in touch with people somehow!). But no reading other people's blogs, and no Twitter. For every hour I spend blogging, I probably spend at least another hour reading the blogs of all my writing buddies. If I'm going to write at least 50,000 words in November, I'm going to need all the writing time I can get! Yes, like every other writer out there, I've decided to do NaNo this year (for the first time ever). Fortunately, I know many of you are doing the same thing so you'll understand if you don't see my around the blogosphere!

(By the way, I reserve the right to check blogs occasionally if I'm meeting my goals, AND to write a blog post myself if there's something worth sharing!)

(Also, John is laughing at me for writing a blog post about how I'm not going to be writing any more blog posts. Sheesh.)

Sometimes you just have to take an unplug break! Whatever works for you, best of luck with your writing!
