#62: Taking a Break

Hey, everyone!

*looks at title* I know, I know... aren't I ALREADY taking a break from writing? That isn't quite the case... something I'm not sure comes off across well enough is the struggle to write and edit when I'm not in the best mindset for it.

The truth is, I can make all of the excuses that I want, that'll make me feel better despite the obvious procrastination, denial and overall deteriorating mental health. I'm pretty sure I touched on this during August's blogpost, and I can't say my situation has improved any.

And you know what I realized? Even when I'm planning to write, even when I'm plotting future character arcs and such... I still hit a wall somehow. And I'm not sure if it's just life distracting me from being creative, taking up all of my energy, or WHAT. All I know is: this way of working is just NOT working!

I need to move past my block, and I honestly think the best way is to take a break. Not from social media, mind you! A break - as in - a break from trying to write, trying to edit... All month, I've been trying to force myself to write, to edit, and it's honestly disheartening. I feel like if I keep forcing myself to try and write, I'll only become more depressed when it comes to writing, and more frustrated with myself.

Gee, I hope any of that made sense... thanks for reading if you've gotten this far into the blog <3

TLDR: I'm taking a month break for October, seeing how it's spooky season and my birthday month, I feel like it'll do me some good~ Besides, November seems like a good month to get back into writing, seeing how it'll be National November Writing Month and all that <3

Reiterating: I won't be gone from social media; I might even draw more, but we shall see!

I still hope to see you all next month! In the meantime, please keep spreading the word about my book! <3 And don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out on any future updates (which includes these blogposts)! Thanks for reading, everyone! Stay safe and stay awesome! <3

Oh and thanks for being so patient with me <33
