Blog Break

I would really love to give you heartfelt, thought provoking and funny content on a daily, or at least weekly basis. But I’m giving all that goodness to something else right now- my book Beautiful Feet: Unleashing Women into Everyday Witness.

I’ve been feeling the pressure to be “a real” writer by blogging, submitting articles for publication and working on my book but I’ve begun to realize that just isn’t feasible right now. My manuscript revisions are due at the end of December so I’m hoping in January to start the new year with some kind of blogging consistency. I have a ton of ideas and things I want to write about every single day. But I’m trying to be disciplined in channeling that creativity into the book.  And not drive my family crazy while trying to hustle to achieve some sort of ideal of what “a real writer” is.

If I do happen to post consider it a little treat that I’ve given myself and shared with you- like Jake and Heath said in Brokeback Mountain- “why can’t I quit you?!”

In the mean time I’ll be doing this:

revising in my cozy little office nook.

Pouring over these:

revisions on how to make the book be less sucky.

Looking like this:

And hopefully I’ll get to this point sooner than later:

That was me the day I submitted the first draft of my manuscript dancing around my kitchen feeling like a bad mamma mamma!  In the mean time if you happen to miss me, you can check out:

You’ll mostly find cute pictures of my kids, small victories in my life such as a clean fridge and really important things I’m pondering- like why jolly ranchers hard candy tastes so good but jolly ranchers chews taste like wax.

See you soon!
