Taking a break

Hi. Some readers have noticed that I haven’t blogged in a little while, and they’ve been asking where I am. Don’t worry — I’m fine. But I am on a leave of absence of sorts. There’s some stuff happening in my personal life: again, nothing bad, but there are some projects I’m working on in my personal life that are pretty all-absorbing, and they’ll continue to be all-absorbing for probably about another month. And rather than drive myself up a tree trying to do the intense personal projects AND keep up the blogging, I’m giving myself permission to actually take a freaking break.

I’m actually realizing that, not counting the time I had surgery for the cancer (which hardly counts), I haven’t taken a real break from my work in many, many years. And I’m also realizing that breaks are good things. If this were a regular job, I’d be taking vacations. I think I need to start treating writing as a regular job, and start building vacations into my schedule. Anyway. I’m fine, I’m just taking a break. I may do a little blogging here and there, but mostly you probably won’t see me until late February/ early March. Thanks for your patience!

    I’m giving myself permission to actually take a freaking break.

    Hey wait, aren’t you supposed to ask OUR permission? Maybe via an internet poll or something?

    Just kidding, enjoy your time off!

    I’m sorry, Ms. Christina, but you failed to submit your application for a break to the Bloggers Break Committee in a timely fashion. Therefore your break is automatically denied. You may appeal this denial to the Bloggers Break Appeal Subcommittee for consideration at their next meeting, scheduled in August 2017. Your appeal must be sent by registered mail, postmarked no later than December 31, 2013, for the 2017 meeting. The next meeting after that will be in 2021.

    Perhaps you should write an employment contract with yourself. Including holidays, paid vacation and all that. I used to be a freelance consultant and wish I had thought of that back then. As it was I always felt like I was procrastinating whenever I took time off so I never really did it properly.

    Greta — I hate to bother you during this break from online stuff.

    I sent two checks to you (one in October 2014 and one in December 2014) using your PO Box address.

    Both were returned to me as undelivered a few days ago.

    Do you have another mailing address that you could pass to me? I sent this request in a Facebook message . If you didn’t get that, my home email is stevecaldwell at bellsouth dot net.
