Embracing Author and Publisher

Taking a Blogging Break

My dream has always been to publish a novel. My current project has been "almost done" for over a year now. I'm ready to be completely done and finally get rid of the "almost." That means I need more time to work on my writing, editing and beginning the publishing process of my novel.

When I started this blog, I was really excited for the chance to share ideas and photos, and also to connect with others. I still enjoy those things, but there are only so many hours in the day. 

Positive Practice Living is taking up a lot more time than I anticipated.  Once I'm finished with posts, comments and networking, I find I have no more of myself to give to my novel. That doesn't work in the greater picture since my novel is my priority.

All of this is to say...I'm taking a blogging break. I need to focus all of my writing energy on my novel. This is an act of self-care that I hope will benefit me and bring my stress levels down a notch.

I hope to come back with a novel ready to publish and lots of ideas to share. I'm not sure where this path with lead me, but I am confident it is the road I need to walk for now. 

Thank you so much for all of your visits, comments and Wordless Wednesday fun! Keep being awesome :)


  1. Best of luck, Amanda. Looking forward to your return and update!

  2. Amanda,

    Blogging will eat your time up. I get where you're coming from and I hope you get that novel published soon. Best of luck to you!

  3. Oh wow, Amanda! Good for you. I look forward to seeing the final published work! Congratulations!


  4. All the best. I've had characters in limbo in two novels for few years now so I totally understand. I keep thinking I'll get to it. Will look forward to your sharing your novel when you get published. That is awesome. :)
