I’ll be out on vacation until the 26th of May. I will check in occasionally to reply to messages, but for the most part, I’ll be too busy baking my backside on the beach and drinking far more than necessary or, in fact, advisable.

Like you, I spend most of my waking hours juggling work, health, friends, family, and writing. But for the next few weeks I’ll be taking time off and enjoying a well-deserved rest. I wish I could take you and my blog on vacation with me, but only so much can fit into my baggage before it becomes emotional.

Take care of yourselves while I’m gone. I want to find you all in one piece when I return.

We’re all in this together. I work hard to help other writers bridge the gap between a passion and a profession. If you found this article useful, consider pledging as little as $1 on Patreon. Thank you.
