What if . . .
Breaks aren’t really breaks.
Because life doesn’t care that you took a break from answering a ton of blogs or emails. It goes on. I went from a great high this week from finishing my revisions on my manuscript and shipping it off to my critique partners to a one-day low when the phone didn’t ring because of contest results.
Yes, it’s really true what everyone says about this profession. It’s a roller coaster ride.
But one I won’t get off. And I know you won’t either.
So I’ve started the obvious next step. A new outline for another book. My sixth but am I counting? Yes, I am. I keep wondering if this will be the one. You probably wonder about your own list, too.
What is a blogging blessing this time around is I have found a wonderful artist, Susan Roux and blogger friend to act as my consultant. Although I write, I don’t paint and I needed an artist to help me out with my plot. Actually I was intrigued by an artist’s retreat she set up and it started me thinking. What if ….
So breaks aren’t really breaks.
Because life doesn’t stop nor my brain from working churning onward.
So tell me, what if you took a break and couldn’t get back on Blogger, what would you do?
