This morning, I’m feeling under the weather – a flu has descended (as it usually does) right before Christmas.  So I’m taking it easy and looking forward to seeing how good After Earth with Wil and Jaden Smith can really be.  4429177147

I’m going to be taking a little break from the blog and social media over the holidays. I think some time away would do me some good, give me time to refocus and gather my thoughts.  Let me concentrate on a more systematic way to promote my business while also giving me the space I need to really write deeply.

I find myself feeling the need to check my phone all the time and then I get caught up in conversations there that are – while important – not as important as the time with the humans near me.  So I’m going to step back and rest a bit.

So over the next two weeks here on the blog, I’m going to be sharing my Top Ten posts from 2013. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing these favorites, which include some of the best interviews on writing I’ve had the honor of sharing this year.

Have a blessed holiday season, everyone. May you find the rest, the laughter, and the wisdom that you need.

How about you? Are you stepping back over the next couple of weeks?  Why or why not? 

My 10th Most Popular Post of 2013 was Young Adult Fantasy Series – A Top Twelve.  If you’re a YA fantasy fan, be sure to stop by and let me know what other titles I should read.  Thanks.
