TIme Out

It feels like a while since I posted, but that's not really true, it's just been a couple of days. But they've been a LONG couple of days.

It's seemed like everything I've been doing lately, working so hard on getting my book finished, edits, looking for a CP and trying to hold down a day job have been a struggle. My stress levels have been higher than I want them to be, which is why I've been slow at replying to comments, and commenting on all of your blogs.

Hopefully, having a couple more days off will get me motivated again, and I can give you some better updates on what I'm doing next! :D

Before I go, if you're seeking a CP, check out the CP mixer the girls at Falling For Fiction are having today! It's gonna be lots of fun!

  2. I'm not a very good editor, but I'd gladly do a read over for you and offer my humble opinion.
    (perhaps spring is chaos for everyone...that way we enjoy the summer slow down?)

  3. Take a deep breath, have a cup of tea and relax. Maybe you need a few days off the computer all together, just to chill. Sorry you are feeling so stressed.

    These past few days have been crazy for me too. (Had to take one child to the ER, work, a graduation, etc)

    Sending calm, happy thoughts your way!

  14. Yeah stress! Well, not really, except I love to complain about it. Because then I can say 'I need chocolate' or 'I need a drink' and justify it.

  20. I know how you feel about 'just a few days' feeling like a lot longer! I'm kind of wrung out at the moment, for no good reason probably, but I've had a few weekends of a lot of stuff going on, so haven't really had a heap of downtime. Hopefully this weekend will be different!

    In other news, here's an award for ya:

  22. It seems like that is the theme for the month. Blog slacking and high stress. I know it is for me. Good luck on getting everything nailed down and getting rid of some of that stress!

  23. Thanks for the shout out.

    Taking a few days off can be exactly what you need. All of this stuff can be super stressful and stepping away can really put things in perspective.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  24. Aww hope you're feeling less stressed *hug*

    Maybe your stress levels are telling you to re-evaluate your blog frequency though? You blog more than anyone I know and I'm sure your loyal fans (including me) will stick by you if you decide to cut back. Especially when you're on the brink of author stardom (yes you are!)

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  26. I think time away is important for us. We can't be all things all of the time.

    I hope that you are feeling a little bit more level and you like now.

  30. I LOVE blogging. LOVE it. But when I take a week off once in a while - I really, really force myself to RELAX with that time. Hope you enjoy!

  31. Hope you're feeling a lot better now, and more relaxed! I think everyone goes through that phrase of thinking everything's coming at them from all angles, all at once - and it's nice to just stop and have some time to yourself :)!

    I hope this makes you feel better - I've decided to award you with a 'Stylish Blogger's Award' - hooray! I absolutely LOVE the layout and design of your blog, and I think you really deserve it :)! I'm guessing that a blog as good as yours has probably been awarded one of these already lol, but just in case you haven't, the rules/explanation of the award are on my blog :).

    Hope you're having a nice, relaxing day :)!
