Manic Monday: Burn Out!

Hello My Happy People,

P.R. and I are still trying to get over the flu we brought home with us from vacation. We went to the doctor today and the good news is we are not actively infected, just dealing with the after effects of the illness, not CoVid (thank goodness). So basically we just need more rest. To that end, I am going to make this short and sweet and go back to bed.

I actually took two weeks off from all book related work while we were on vacation. I had not done that since I began working on my books in 2015. The last few days I have been having a lot of great ideas for the last Into the West book and for my new book, The Touch. It made me realize a lot of my issues with these two books has just been good, old fashioned burnout. I'm tired.

I do everything for the books from designs and layouts to social media and taking care of the website, publicity, and of course, writing the books. I need a bit more of a break. I think I will be taking another short vacation from everything next month when we go to the UK for the She Inspires awards and again at Christmas when one of my bonus daughters, Mary, will be visiting us. Until then, I am going to do my best to set and keep "office hours".

I hope by making these changes it will spark my creativity. I will let you know more as I get things figured out. Until then, I will do my best to give you something interesting to read.

Take care and have a great week people!
