Taking a Short Break

I’m taking a little break from daily posting and daily reading. The past few months have been a crazy circus of writing hundreds of pages of interviews and articles related to the virtual book tour The Brothers Path has been on (semi-autonomously, but not quite on its own). I’m tired of self-expression and there will probably be another blog tour in late November and it will be some of the same again.

Self-promotion is difficult because when you’re doing it, you’re not really dealing with ideas or imagination; you’re dealing with your products and yourself. BUT through all this, which has definitely been “On the Job Training,” I’ve had a lot of help, support, friendship and kindness from people I don’t even know, friends I’ve met here and, I’d say, the world at large. I just need a mental break for a little while, maybe to do some artwork and who knows, some fiction writing. I promise to get back to writing and reading soon. And Lamont and Dude can show up at any time.

  1. Though I’ll miss dropping in on your blog and assuming I’ll find something worthwhile and interesting to read, I understand the need for a break. Use it well, Martha, and come back to your blog friends refreshed and ready once again to entertain us and make us think.

  2. Taking a break from time to time is good. But just for a time 🙂 I read your post and I feel that somehow you had enough of something…just live the “naked” days.
    kisses and keep writing 🙂

    • I’m a writer and have spent the last several months marketing my book. It’s just been a lot of work and a lot of writing about “me, me, me” which gets old. Well, I’m kind of old 😉 Thanks for your kind comment and for stopping by!
