Blog Break: I Need To Charge My Batteries

I finally hit the wall.

I’ve been posting content every day so far this year. Lately, the results have been poor, by my own standards. It’s obvious I’m approaching burnout.

I’ll return when my muse does. I’m giving myself a week, hoping to be refreshed and recharged. It might take longer than that.

I want to sincerely thank my followers/readers for supporting me this year. You deserve better. The quality of my content has been slipping lately.

While I’m on my journey of healing – part of my problem is focusing, because of the terrible things happening in America today – I’m going to search my inner-self, and see what it’s going to take to grow creatively.

Meanwhile, I have archives on my work since I started this blog two years ago. You’re invited to check them out.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

  1. Take the time you need, but please come back. With all the angst and deception in the United States regarding a very real and deadly threat, it’s easy to get frustrated and burned out. I’ve been following this Corona since December, as I have friends in China, where it was first known as the “Wuhan flu” or “Wuhan pneumonia.” (I don’t endorse naming viruses after a city or country or culture; this is what locals in China called it before it received its name of novel corona virus, which I prefer.)

  2. A writer’s worst enemy is the world itself. Rest up Dave. The muse will guide you back to the yellow brick road.
