Taking a Break

I think it’s time for me to take a little break.

I mean, I came into 2015 determined to fix up this blog, get a new layout, do some exciting Layla stuff, and write about it in these pages. I even told you that this was the plan.  But what have I done?


Which isn’t fair to any of you lovely readers.  Talk about broken promises.

Sure, on the bright side I’m enjoying writing again.  It looks like I’ll finish my screenplay, get my Charity books into print, and probably finish my weird little sci fi novel.  I’ve even faced the fact that I must start some kind of marketing plan for my books and eventually for me as a writer (self-promotion is so weird).

This means I really must work on a new blog layout and approach, some social media, and all that other promo stuff I’ve been putting off forever.

But because of this and life in general, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed.  Something has to give.

So I’ve decided to take a break from Becoming Lalya for a month or two.  Then when I do come back it will be with the changes this blog needs.  And of course in the meantime I’ll keep visiting all of your blogs.  I want to hear your news, keep up with what you’re writing, and hopefully read about the good stuff that’s coming your way.

That’s it.  No big deal.  I’ll be back (does that sound like a threat?) at some point.

May all of you have a splendid week.

  1. Sounds like a plan to me!
    Funny how we both wanted to quit writing. Didn’t work out like that, did it?
    Work on your writing, this blog, and a marketing plan. We’ll see you on the other side.

    Alex – I was thinking of you and our quitting plans when I wrote this. I’ll see you over there, darlin’!

  3. It was my Denver Airport post that’s chased you away, isn’t it? :-) Marketing our work is really something I hate doing. Do what you must to follow your instincts. Alex, your other friends, and I will be waiting on the other side.

    Roland – Maybe I should have a picture of that Airport Devil Horse on my new blog!

    I’ll miss you! Glad you are liking writing again though–that is the biggie. I need to get back in my own groove that way.

  6. Helena says:

    Hart – You’ve got so many grooves going on, I’m impressed.

  7. Have a good break, Helena. I’ll see you when you get back.

  8. Looking forward to your new look! Enjoy your break and have fun.

    See you, Mike dear.

    Carol – Fun? What’s that? Too much work!
