* Merry Go Round *

I've been on a self-propelled Merry Go Round for quite some time. Pushing and striving to accomplish all the things that are important to me as I go faster and faster without really getting anywhere.....just going around in circles.

Writing my memoir is THE most important thing in my life right now. Add to that blogging and my blog friends, my family and writer friends, handwriting letters, reading as much as I can, entering writing and photography contests & calls for submissions, attending writerly functions, trying to keep up with e-mails, etc.

I'm not complaining, really I'm not. I love being busy, but I'm not talented enough to successfully do everything, so what I've been doing is lots of things inadequately. I feel badly that I haven't kept up with reading everyone's blogs, and/or leaving comments. And I haven't even kept up with thanking everyone for the comments left for me.

So, I'm taking another Blog Break to concentrate on my book. I plan on posting Nostalgic Sundays as often as I can, because those will fit right in with my memoir. And if I come up with something that I feel is important to mention on my blog....I definitely will.

Thanks for your understanding, and I truly hope everyone won't forget about  me! (I will keep in touch by e-mail, too!)

  1. We all need to gear down once in a while. Hope you get done with the book!


  2. You gotta do what you gotta do!! Hope your blog break affords you the ability to get done what you most want to get done.

    Blessings and hugs,

  3. Something's got to give! Get that book done, girl! We just finished my dad's memoirs - Oi!! What a project!! It's at the printer now and he's like a kid waiting for Christmas.

  4. Sounds like a great plan, Becky.

  5. Oh, Becky, I'll miss seeing you around here. I understand how easy it is to get overwhelmed with things. You are so involved with so many great activities.

    Big hugs and I hope that you get your book all finished soon.

  6. I just took a blog break too! Enjoy! (It really does help.)

    Good luck with your book :)

  7. Good for you, Becky! That's a practice all of us should heed.

  8. Enjoy your time off. Write lots of words! :)

  9. Becky, you KNOW I want to read your memoirs, but I hate it when people take breaks. I hate it when I have to take a break, as I will when we head out to Jekyll Island in June. It makes my thinking fuzzy and I feel off balance!! But we will carry on!

    Thanks for all you do, Becky. You are a jewel!!!

  10. Becky, Leonardo had his fingers in many pies too and look what happened with him..

    My mother always said.. if you want something done, ask a busy person.. and i guess you are your own best choice!

    happy progress.

  11. Good luck with the writing, Becky. You come back, now, ya hear? Susan

  12. I hope you get a lot done on your book! Have a great blog break. See you when you return.

  13. We will be here when you feel ready to return. And it is so important to do what is right for you... Hugs.

  14. I sooooo, oh sooooo, oh sooooo understand! You are too hard on yourself Becky. You're such a beautiful person. why, just yesterday, I took a picture of the card you made me so that I would have it with me (on my phone) as I go about my day.

  15. No worries, Becky, I think we're all in this sometimes.
