Catch up time

I'm not a fan of blog breaks--too easy to lose your momentum but I have found myself so behind since flying out to Washington last week, that I must.

I pushed myself yesterday and today and did complete my first revisions on my WIP. But now that I've started-- I want to finish. I need to get it out to my critique partners some time.

I also feel like I have been lax in my visiting you so instead of a blog break, I'll be taking a visiting tour to catch up on all of your lives while I review my book again.

Be back soon!Write hard!

I hate getting out of touch when I take blogging breaks, but it's important to identify priorities, and right now it sounds like your priority needs to be your WIP. I hope your revisions continue to go well. Will look forward to your posts when you're able to return. :)

You'll be missed but you are fulfilling God's call. A friend shared a quote with me that I revisit often: "There are enough hours in the day to do what God calls you to do.... And no more." Keep doing what He calls you to do ;)
Blessings,
Susan

Deb Shucka said...

Best of luck on your work. It sounds like you're really close to a huge transition place. GO!!!

Karen Lange said...

I know what you mean about momentum and breaks. I agree, but I've found I just have to take breaks sometimes or my head will explode. Not a pleasant thought, you know? :)

Have a good, productive one!
Blessings,
Karen

Sometimes blog breaks are inevitable. I take them whenever I feel the need, and usually when I come back, I feel refreshed. :-)

Ahhh, a pause that refreshes!

Enjoy the downtime. It is a wise choice.

Enjoy the break, Terri. Just look at it as recharging, not shutting down, okay? :) You're investing somewhere else for a little bit.

Love ya!

Margo Berendsen said...

I need to crack down and get my revisions far enough to get the story out to my partners too. I'm afraid they'll give up on me if they don't get something soon!

Nancy said...

Feel free to do what you like. I will be happy if you blog or if you visit. Blessings. I'm glad you are in a good kind of busy.

I totally understand where you are coming from. Every since my daughters wedding March 5th I had been kind of MIA. I am trying to get back into the swing of things and that means catching up on reading your wonderful blog!

Carole said...

So far, I am doing good to get one posted per month but I want to improve on this. I enjoy it sooo much - writing is one gift God has given me - I need to share it more often. Glad you are making progress:-) Good for you.

Glad you're back, honey, but it's great you're catching up on writing, too.

Stephanie Faris said...

Writing comes first. Well, behind family and any paying jobs we have, that is! And THEN comes blogging. Well, wait...all that is AFTER taking care of you and making sure you're happy and healthy. Okay, now I'm done!

Jennifer Shirk said...

Good for you! I'll be rooting for you at the end of that revision finish line! :)
