Cutting Ties

Life has become overwhelming for me lately. I’m having a difficult time juggling personal life, writer’s life and the dreaded day job. I’ve made some decisions to cut ties with a few blogs that guest on either a monthly or weekly basis. I belonged to six and have cut it down to one. Once a week might be manageable. If that becomes unmanageable I’ll have to say good-bye to them too.
It pains me to say good-bye but for my own sanity it had to be done. I’m not writing so trying to think up writing related topics is just impossible. I’m sure this won’t be the case forever, but for now.
I also missed my writer’s meeting on Saturday. This too caused me heartache because I really need this time away from the house. Instead I was in bed for almost 12 hours. It seems I’m suffering a case of post partem depression. Time for me to get some help. I don’t easily admit stuff like this, but I’ve come to the conclusion I can’t hide behind a false persona. This is all new to me. 5 kids and I never suffered from it. Though I'm a bit older so maybe that's why. Who knows.
I do have second round edits for I Wanna Sext U Up to work on. It isn’t easy but I so loved this story at one time and I want to see it published.
The day job is extremely busy today so this will be brief.
Hope you all have a Happy Monday!


  1. You just do whatever you gotta do to get better. Lots of hugs.

    I'll keep an eye out for I Wanna Sex U Up.

  2. Feel better! Sorry I missed you at the meeting. It's really important to set limits and put yourself and your health first. Always!

    Take good care,

  3. Amber - life sometimes throws us a curve and we have to bend so we don't break. Bending is all right. I'm cutting back too.
    Your hormones will correct themselves soon. Sending you good thoughts and many hugs.

  4. Many, many hugs. I missed you this weekend but your own health is important. If you feel you need help then go and do it. Our bodies and mind are very receptive, so if it's telling you to do it, really listen. Cut back on things and get some clarity of mind, I'm sure the ideas will come back. Right now there is no room for them. :)

  5. Sorry to hear you're having a hard time. Cutting back just feels better sometimes. I've done the same. I cut out blogs and loops that just weren't feeding me or helping me be more productive. Hopefully you'll find your footing soon. {{hugs}}
