It’s been about two months since I wrote my last blog post here. Happy Fall, everyone!
What happened? Well, I took an unplanned but necessary hiatus. In my last couple posts, I mentioned I had a sense of incipient burnout on the writing front. At the same time, I feared that taking a break would steal my momentum.
The fact is, I had not stopped to take a breather in a while, and it turns out I really needed one. After two years of pushing myself creatively with limited downtime, I was running on empty. As soon as I gave myself permission to stop, everything stopped, including my drive to stay productive.
I want to write more about this experience, but I’m still taking things slow and gathering my thoughts about that. For today, I want to highlight the amazing pieces in progress by the author participants in this year’s Writer in Motion event!
In past years’ events, I’ve written my own stories for WiM, but this year I am helping coordinate it. I’m absolutely loving the work I’ve read so far. Check these out and follow along with the authors’ writing process from first draft to edited final story!
If I’ve missed your story and you’re participating in the event, drop me a line if you’d like me to share – I didn’t have links for all the folks who are signed up!
As for me, I’m hoping to get back to regular blog posts here this month, but I’m neck deep in revisions for the next book in the Cambion series and making that my first priority. We’ll see how things go!
