Temporary Hiatus

I don’t know if I’m going to continue with the A-Z challenge.

For the last few weeks, I haven’t been feeling the greatest. Trying to keep going and not letting it show through, but I’m exhausted. For the last few weeks, it seems like I always have a line of people wanting things from me, but I never get the chance to finish one task before they’re dragging me on to the next. Every time I try to catch up or get ahead something else goes wrong–something gets overlooked or I make a stupid mistake because  somewhere in the process my thoughts were completely derailed and I didn’t think to go back and check something again.

sky-110850_640I’m organizing a conference that will take place in 2 weeks and we already have more than 300 people registered. But since my office has a very small staff–only 1/3 of what we had last time we did this–I’m working overtime and everything from creating the conference program, organizing ads, and collecting bios of speakers to marketing, placing orders, and arranging for awards. Yet, this job doesn’t pay me enough to make ends meet, so I still have to work on other projects in my spare time.

All of this on top of trying to stay on top of everything I have to do as an author. There’s always more to do.

I’m lucky to have a great street team who is putting together a blog tour for Bound and Unbroken next month, but I think that for the next few weeks, I’m going to step back and concentrate on other things–like having a relaxing weekend with Sir.

I need time to regroup in my head and recover from my hectic schedule of late.

  1. I’ve really enjoyed your posts, but I completely understand. I’ve had the same problems in the past, and especially, the first few months of this year and December of last year. Now with my dad’s passing away, things are even harder. Sometimes writing helps, but sometimes I just don’t feel like writing or doing anything and I have to take a break. And I understand about trying to make ends meet.
    Good luck with everything!

    1. I’ve been really enjoying this theme, too. Maybe I’ll pick it up later in a different format.
      I’m sorry to hear about your dad, but I know what you mean with the writing. Sometimes it feels like I can pour all of my emotions into it and it helps, and other times, meh :/
      Best wishes to you, Nancy. Thanks for stopping by.
