See You In a While

Every so often I get this feeling I should back away. Alleviate the pressure having a blog creates. Give a little space, with which often comes a greater perspective of vision, and where things need to go in the future.

A break is good, everyone should take one occasionally.

It just occured to me that now is a good time for me. What with the end of school near for my kiddles, that other job, and the completion of the current draft of my work-in-progress (a novel) within sight, now's as perfect a time as any.

I'll be back. Promise you won't go anywhere in the meantime?

Happy May, friends!

I've felt this way, too. Prayers as you back away you don't feel isolated. :) This is only as important as we let it be. Don't let it overwhelm you. Happy May.

Enjoy your break. I think I am getting where I need one too. We all need to regroup and let get our inspiration back.
Look forward to you coming back as I am now a follower

We will be here when you return. I understand all too well what it is like to balance priorities.

I hear you! Good timing. Enjoy the end of the school year!

I'll keep checking you out on Facebook. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with blogging, too. A break is needed. Sounds like it's time for you to take it. Your writing and family come first right now.

I just saw you on Facebook and made a few comments. The beauty of Facebook is that there's real dialogue. I wish Blogger had the kind of comment form that WordPress has. I've been thinking of switching, if I can figure it out, but I'm afraid I'll lose my followers and I don't want that!

Have a VERY productive break.

Yes, breaks are important! Sometimes I'll just slide away quietly for a short time, but think you are much smarter to let us know! And congrats on your WIP.
