This is a really hard post to write.
I haven't wanted to write it, even though I've felt like I should write it for weeks.
But here goes.
I've been struggling to find the time and inspiration to write for months now. Ever since I finished the first draft of my last novel, I haven't been making very good progress.
I thought that if I started my blog up again that it would help, but it didn't. I was just spending more time on the blog, and no time writing. This has partly been because I'm graduating in a week, and I have been preoccupied with party invitations and planning and all the stress and excitement that comes along with graduating.
The really hard part of this post is that I love blogging. I really do! But I have felt like a hypocrite the past few months, giving advice about writing when I'm not writing at all. So I'm going to stop posting, for now, and focus on writing.
That's what's important for me right now.
Hopefully this break will only be for a few months, and maybe even just a few weeks. However long it takes me to get into a routine with my writing. Right now I feel like I need to focus on getting back to what I love doing the most, which is writing.
I might put up a few more posts that I'd been working on, I'm not sure. But I won't be writing any new material for the blog.
Thank you to everyone for all the support and encouragement I've gotten. I will continue to read your blogs and comment!
I'm so glad you came along on the ride with me. Hopefully I'll be back soon.
