Updates and such

Hello, all!

I just wanted to update you on what's going on with me. I feel like this poor blog has become a billboard for blog tours. I'm sorry about that. I've been in a weird head-space lately. I edit for other authors as a side gig and for a while it kind of took over my life, like totally. As a result, I have not been in a particularly creative mood. For a couple of months, my writing nearly completely halted and that is not a good thing for me, but I couldn't write because, as I stated before, I was editing, and editing fries my brain. I have been mentally exhausted and because I haven't been writing, a little depressed. So what's the remedy? I'm not going to edit for a while because, of all the things in my life I could lose, I never wanted my writing to be one of them.

In just a week's time, I've been writing my tail off! It's back and I am thrilled because a part of me really thought it was gone forever. So I've learned a couple of lessons: 1) I have to protect and nurture my writing at all cost. And 2) balance is everything. And that applies to this blog, too. I've already committed to host several blog tours this month, but after that, I am going to slow them down and make sure I have a good mix of content on this blog-- book reviews and original content and such.

Thanks for visiting and please come back!
