Missing My Old Groove...

I have to say... I'm missing my old blogging groove. I think it kept me a little more focused and organized that I am right now.

I'm doing a lot these days. Working part-time, babysitting the grand-kidlet, finishing up book two and beginning a new book. I'm doing critiques, teaching myself how to do book covers, because I just do not have the cash to hire someone! Oh! And I am taking an online course for Medical Transcription.

But I miss the randomness that was my usual blog posts. Talking about everything, telling people what was going on. Holding blog hops, participating in the A-Z challenge, IWSG posts...

I could go on, but I might cry!

No, not really.

But I do miss you guys!

Blogging was more therapeutic than I care to admit. The flash fiction, the funnies. I miss the funnies. And I have so much fantasy art on my Pinterest page I should just start up with it again.

But I think the biggest reason I stopped, to be honest, was ... I got burned out. I didn't know what to post about anymore and you guys could only deal with so much stress and whining. You all have your own issues.

So maybe I will get back into this. I have more to say, I have one new book coming out the end of next week!


Gotta get that cover done...

But I also have another story I'm working on, then it's on to book three of my trilogy. And then, from there, who knows! I have so many ideas to choose from.

So, I suppose, keep an eye out next week for my cover reveal and then, book two!

Book II is almost ready? Awesome!
I've pulled back a little because I don't want to burn out. I have too many connections, plus there's the IWSG and Challenge. I can't give up now.

Alex! You are a force to be reckoned with in the blogging world. Look what has come of IWSG!! You started that! You're an amazing author, an awesome person and a bad@$$ blogger. ;) More people should strive to be like you.

I am trying to get back to this. I have to start reading more blogs again, that always helped me feel connected to everyone.

And yes! Book two!!

That's fabulous! So soon!! Woop! Can't wait to see it :)

Man, I get how you feel. I've burned out several times in the past BUT what I will say is even when I secretly think I should stop for my own mental wellbeing I ALWAYS come back because I love it too much. SO, go ahead and chill and we'll totes be here for you when you're feeling more rested. <3
