It's not just writing, either. We've had a lot of work at home with maintenance and seasonal preparations, too. I'm worn out.
I am too hard on myself sometimes, and my rising stress and frustration levels are an indicator that I'm out of balance and need rest and space to get it right. I'm going to wrap up my final book reviews, and then I'm taking a break from both writing and review reading until after Easter (April 17). My perfectionist tendencies are getting the best of me, so it's time to get it right. This is a soul issue that I'm working on now, so we'll count this as a setback to rebound from on the journey.
This isn't a sabbatical. I have a list of writing projects/research/ideas that I want to pursue this spring and summer. Hopefully, I'll return with a refreshed mind and new ideas to keep up my journey to diversify my writing.
I hope all of you have a blessed and wonderful Holy Week, and a Happy Resurrection Sunday.
