Forcing Myself to Take a Mini Break…

It’s times like this where my Type-A, overachiever-ness is biting me in the butt.  I really do suffer from superwoman syndrome, thinking I can do it all.  It takes me almost frying my brain to oblivion to realize I need a break.

As bloggers we all try to maintain that Blog Life/Real life balance.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, and one of them has to take a back seat.  As much as I love, love, LOVE writing period, my Real Life is on a real fast, totally exciting, yet super stressfull roller coaster right now and the writing has to take a back seat, at least for the week.  I struggled last week trying to do it all and today I’m happy that I can spell my name! LOL.

So ladies I’m taking time off this week from all of my writing (which I haven’t done in a really long time!)

If you didn’t know, I write posts regularly for other blogs besides this one:

Visual Adjectives: I’m the social media manager for this small press publishing company and their blog is my baby!  I designed it and launched earlier this year and I write TV, Movie, and Book News and Reviews as well as give my two cents on writing.

Yahoo! Shine:  After this post, you probably already knew about this one and since then I hadn’t let that experience keep me away!

I’m also taking a step back from writing my first  novel Damaris (I would be writing gibberish at this point and I want to save my editor’s red ink this week!).


Enjoy the links ladies and I should be back in business next week!

    I totally had to take a step back too. I maintained some kind of semblance of posting but really had not been active in blog life for the last 2 weeks…be kind to yourself is what I kept saying. I had a large work project and was working long days, plus visitors, then my dad came to town, and of course my poor boyfriend who I actually did not even see at all last week.

    Take your break girl!!! Be kind to yourself. Hugs <3

    P.S- I did not know you did all that!!!!

      LOL! Sometimes I look at it and I”m like “Geesh why do I do so much!” But I love it all and wouldn’t trade it for the world!
