This has been a difficult decision to make, but I'm afraid I must take a break from writing altogether. Over the last few months, it's become increasingly difficult to find time and energy to dedicate to my creative pursuits. This is a very hard thing for me to face, as I love writing and always have. But the reality is that my real life has become much too hectic of late, and I no longer have the physical or mental energy to dedicate to both my real-world job and the stories I write. My RL job pays my bills. Writing, unfortunately, only provides me with a tiny income. As hard as it is for me to do, I'm going to have to put what energy I have into getting ahead financially. I'm hoping this will all be resolved when spring rolls around, and if all goes as planned, I'll be able to get back to writing on a regular basis.
I'm truly sorry if this decision upsets anyone. Just know that it's not a choice I've made lightly. Thank you to everyone who has been so wonderfully supportive of me and my work.
Much love to all!
