Sometimes you have to take a break

If you are a blogger, do you sometimes feel the need to step back and reflect? If you are a writer, does your writing sometimes keep you from blogging?

I know, maybe that is a strange question.

Sometimes other passions and hobbies grab my attention and do not let go. Lately, my fiction writing has been a priority.

Right now, I’m in the final stages of the second full revision of my first novel. Since this is my first time writing a full length book, I am learning daily about editing, structure and above all…patience.

This project is an extension of myself. Kind of like a baby, so to speak. I have nurtured it, cleaned it, prepped it, and am preparing to send it out into the world for all to see.

This scares me.

I would guess that most everyone who has ever written a book understands this feeling of fear.

This project was started in April of 2013. It’s hard for me to believe I’m almost at the two-year mark.

If any of you have tips or suggestions to offer in regards to finalizing a writing project, I would love to hear them. Thanks, and peace.

    As for the stepping back and reflecting the answer is yes…although am not a good example compared to much more active bloggers
