Knowing When To Step Back

While in the process of writing another book about Bekah’s adventures, I realized that I need to step back and take a little hiatus. A nagging feeling kept telling me to stop and re-examine my manuscript.

At first, I was blown away as this nagging sensation (insight) grew stronger. I realized I needed to take a closer look at it. The catalyst propelling me into this self-reflection of my process and product materialized when my health took a decline. I guess that was Nature’s way cautioning me to slow down.

Now, that my health is back on track, I am ready to get back to work. Within the next couple of days, I will pick up my draft manuscript. The beauty of taking a hiatus is that despite the fact that you are not writing, your piece is still in your mind. Ideas continue to mull around in your gray area.

 

  Here I’m with Bekah and Ginger as we explored Crater Lake in Oregon.  This was another way I worked on re-energizing my spirit.  I’m now well rested and re-energized. Looking forward to favorable output.
