Hi there Soulies. It’s me again, Amy Deason and I’ve got a question.
Have you ever gone on a writing hiatus?
A hiatus, of course, means a temporary gap, pause, break, or absence in something. For example, you might take a hiatus from work or maybe even watching a favorite tv series. It doesn’t mean it’s forever though. It’s just a break for a little while.
Well I want to think that’s what I’m on. But I’m not so sure.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I want to write. I want to finish book 3 in my series. I want people to know about the motley crew of operatives in The Perfect Order. And of course how Charlie started it all.
I’ve also got several books just waiting to be written-detective stories, romantic stories, kids’ stories.
But it seems I never have the time to do it. It’s been over 2 years since my last book was finished and published.
I fully intended to write at least 1 book a year.
Well, we can see how that’s gone… 😒
But like I said, I can never find the time. I work 50+ hours a week (Sun-Fri), take care of my home and kids, spend time with the hubby, and make time for my parents and sis. Which leaves little time for me. And my writing.
So you see, I’m not sure that what I’m on could actually be called a hiatus. I mean, it is my choice to give my time to everyone else.
But I still WANT to write.
Actually this is the most writing I’ve been able to do in nearly 2 months. 😮
I don’t mean to sound whiny or like I’m complaining. I’m so happy to have my family and my job. But sometimes a little me time might be nice you know?
Anyway, my time is limited today so I’ve got to go. Thanks for stopping by. And if you would like to share your own hiatus story or offer some advice, please feel free to do so.
Have a great day!!
