Taking a detour

Something's got to give. That's what I've been thinking over the past few weeks, trying to fit in all the ... words ... in my life. But there comes a time when the words buzz like angry bees. When there are so many of them trapped up there in my head, trying to breathe, that the noise is literally deafening.

So, I'm telling some of them to buzz off. To which end, I'm having a mini-blogcation while I try to break the back of the non-fiction manuscript I'm working on. Deadline day is drawing near, and I want to be on top of it before then. I'm being responsible and clearing some room to get it done. Before the night before it's due. Breaking the habit of a lifetime.

I'll be back on Friday night with the Weekend Rewind.

Have a great week everyone!

  13. I'm a big fan of blogcations. A blog should support your book writing, not push it aside. Happy writing.
