Gone Fishing

I have been struggling a lot with burnout this year. My word count has been shrinking each week and it has been taking me longer and longer to write my blog posts. The head start I had on them has been shrinking and it has been increasingly stressful to meet their deadlines. Last week I reached the point where I realised that meeting the deadlines for this week’s posts was going to involve some very unhealthy choices. So, I have decided to give myself a pass for this week. Scheduling will (at this stage) resume as usual next week.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean I’ll get a break. I’ll still be working hard behind the scenes to get things written. While it buys me a bit of breathing room, there’s still a need for long-term change. I’m not yet sure what that will look like but will let you know once I do.

In the meantime, if you’re craving blog posts to read I recommend delving back into the archives to check out my series Brewing Community in which I invite guests to share a bit about the communities they’re involved in and how these communities have enriched their lives. Alternatively, I recommend checking out my fellow Ditmar nominee Liz Barr’s series onStar Trek: Discovery whichis both entertaining and insightful. Or, if you’re looking for reviews, Gin Jenny at Reading the End recently took a look atChildren of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Plusthe Skiffy and Fanty Show is always a treasure trove.

And you can always still find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Happy reading, everyone! I’ll see you back here next week.
