I took a few weeks off, focused on crafting for my first craft show, and just jotted down notes in my writing journal (cause I couldn't give up ALL the writing things). It actually helped. I'm back on track. I have two stories I'm working on that I want to finish. I still believe in my other story. I love it. But I'm letting it go for now. Its out there. If someone decides to love it as much as I do, I'll be over the moon (no, SERIOUSLY), but for now, I'm going to focus on finishing these other two stories.
And hopefully I'll be back on social media soon. I'm not quite ready to come back to Twitter and FB full time yet, but I'll be back more frequently.
In the meantime I hope your Valentine's Day was lovely, and that your February is going well. And I'd love to hear about it if you've had to take a social media or writing break. Did it help you regroup as well?
