This has not been the easiest month for me, but I’m finally back to blogging. May is the start of novel writing season for me, too, so I’m excited. I just hit a point last month where car shopping, the sudden shift in direction my business was taking, and teaching 20 credits was wearing me down. The thought of blogging on top of it was a source of stress, and since this is what I do to de-stress, I just decided it would be better to take a break.
