Taking a Break

At the moment, I'm mainly exhausted.

I realized lately, that I've been disregarding certain insecurities I have and they've grown to the point where they really affected my life in a bad way.

Thing is, I didn't realize this was happening until things were going far worse than they were supposed to. At least I figured out what was wrong, so now I can start fighting my way back to where I want to be. Right now, though, fighting shadows have left me tired and needing to re-orientate myself.

In between this, I have to focus more on activities that'll help to market my upcoming novel. And on writing more. While finding my center as well.

Doing this while running two blogs just isn't possible. So. I'm putting this blog on a semi-hiatus.

I'll be back, if I have something to say, but I won't be looking for subjects to post about while needing to prioritize other things.

Once I'm back, I'll hopefully have all the perspective I need in order to write about why I need to leave off for now.

Until then, please feel free to say hi at my other blog!

Hi all. Finally have everything ready to put up some photos. So without further ado. Here's a little bit of the palace of Versailles.

Sorry that the photos are so few, but there were so many people shoving and jostling me that it was hard to get good shots in.

Stretching My Wings

For those of you wondering about the photos, I'll have them up on Wednesday. The reason why this isn't done is explained below. 

See, I've been feeling stuck in a rut lately. It's been incredibly frustrating, and my one release, writing, felt on the verge of burning out on me. 

So. Now I'm back to that old method I have for sprucing up my life. I'm learning something new. Usually, I'd flee to the oil paints and canvas, but I might move soon. Which meant I needed to pick up something cleaner to do. 

An that, to me, is needle point. At the moment, I'm sewing a tapestry like a fiend. And on Wednesday, I'm taking lessons in quilting. The former is super comforting because it's lots and lots of repetitive motion. The latter is something I've always wanted to learn how to do properly. 

So yeah, I'm adding to my artistic repetoire. Which is great, but it takes time. Which is why I'm very close to bed time with very little time left to write. Also why I haven't searched out the photos I wanted to post again. 

I promise I'll be better about it by Wednesday! 

Have you ever picked up an interesting craft in order to escape from your life's stresses?

I'm almost back

I finally have my computer, but it took so long to reinstall all my programs that I'm now a week behind everything I wanted to do. 

So I'm just going to get going again with all the writing etc. that I'll need to do. After that, I'll be back about Wednesday next week to continue posting photos from Europe. 

See you soon!
