~ An apology and a decision ~

Hello everyone!

The title is a bit weird, I know. I wrote more about it on my Patreon page over here:ย https://www.patreon.com/posts/apology-and-16764854

The end conclusion is that I have decided to take a break from writing to recover and get better. My work burnout wasn't OK, and I fear it could have been worse. All of your comments and answers on my previous article were both helpful and inspiring. I was able to finally realise how much of a fool I was by not taking a break properly. I didn't even know it was going to lead to something like this...

Anyway, I'm glad it wasn't worse.

So, as per all of your kind advises, I'll be taking a break to mentally and physically recover. It will be a week maybe two, however long it needs to be. Once it's over, I want to return with freshly gained writer powers and awesome continuations to the tales I already spun so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you all for supporting and helping me get through this. Wish me luck and pray that I will return healthy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Note from the author: Thank you for reading this article! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe learned something new! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out my books!

You never know what you might find!

Countless hours of fun and adventure!

I am grateful for any and all of your support! Thank you!

I read “Freshly gained writer powers” and immediately pictured you getting bitten by a radioactive pen (like spiderman). Lol. But seriously, good luck with your rest. Take care. ^.^

YEs go take a break. If I can recommend some thing form an author y grandmother knew he loved to play game’s both in the genre he wrote in and the one opposite it to unwind and get ideas as well might do you some good, ether that or doing something outside like camping.

You take as long as you need to recover and please do not stress any longer then ever need be. I guarantee all here have waited long spans of time to read but a single chapter, be they yours or others. After all is said and done Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is an Amazing book written.

Take your time and your well deserved break.
And don’t think after 2 weeks that you have to return.
Only return if you feel that it is the right thing to do, not if you feel you have to return.
If it takes a week, it takes a week, if it takes half a year, it takes half a year.

Same.
But if you want to take a longer break please tell us. You have no idea how many author I followed who decided to take a “little break” and never gave sign of life again.
Take care ๐Ÿ™‚

I usually dont say this about novel cancellations, but:
-take as much time off as needed.
It was a fun ride and I regret nothing. You shouldn’t eather.

Enjoy your break and take all the time you need. If you cant enjoy what youre writing, then we, as your readers, cant enjoy it either. Everyone gets more out of it when you can write with your heart and not only with your hands.

Good to know. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s another small tip: don’t just merely rest. Take the time to also churn out ideas, ways to flesh out your characters better, or even plan out story arcs/how to execute them hehe. I always ponder about what poems and the types of zines I want to try doing next even when I’m not actually writing haha. But at the same time – there’s no pressure even if you don’t come up with anything. It’s like fishing: you won’t know whether the fish would bite, so that’s not something you can except, but you will still… Read more ยป

Don’t forget to actually do something while you’re on break. Don’t just turn into a vegetable. Best wishes. Have fun.

Please enjoy your break, and come back stronger (mentally, physically, emotionally) than ever!

Rest up and heal well. Maybe turn off your internet for a while too and just… relax.

Hope to see you well!

I recommend a nice hot mug of tea sweetened with honey. It always makes me feel better both mentally and physically.
