It's quiet... too quiet...

Sorry it's been so quiet around here. February and even most of March were a real beating, and I'm still just exhausted. Better, but still a lot more tired than I should be, and not doing enough to fix that.

I really need to just make Getting Enough Sleep a priority, but I think I've discussed before about how missing sleep becomes a sort of vicious cycle, at least for me. Apparently even being intensely aware of the pattern isn't enough to actually break it, though. So there hasn't been a lot of writing going on - not here on the blog, and not on any of my projects, either.

That needs to change. And in order for that to change, I have to get enough sleep. Which, weirdly, means I have to give up the time I try to set aside for writing in the evenings, because right now A) I'm not getting any writing done, and B) it just makes the situation worse because I stay up trying to work and then end up even more tired.

So: a break. Perversely, that probably means that there will be more little snippets and stray thoughts on the blog, here, because these things tend to come out when my brain is rested. But, y'know, we'll see.

I hope the rest of you are taking care of yourselves and getting the nutrition/rest/exercise/medications that you need. You're valuable, and you're worth it, so please do what you need to do for yourself.

  1. I'll miss reading your longer posts, but I totally understand why you need to take a break from writing and blogging for a while. Hope it helps.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
