I'm taking a blog break until after the holidays so I can put all my creative energy into my WIP. It feels a little weird, stepping away from the blogosphere for so long. I love interacting with you guys and discussing books, progress, and how each of us tackles our own writing journey. I learn from your posts and your comments, and it makes a solitary pursuit feel more like a group effort.
That said, I'm excited about my blog-cation. I'm on fire about my current project, and I crave being immersed in it with fewer distractions. I feel like I'm climbing into a cocoon with my manuscript, and when I emerge, I'll be holding a butterfly. Of course, there are no guarantees so I could come out with a pterodactyl growing out of my ear. But let's hope not. Let's hope for a butterfly.
When I return, I'll want to hear everyone's good news. In the meantime, I'm wishing all of you happy writing. Here's to beautiful butterflies for all of us--unless, of course, you're writing a dinosaur book. If that's the case, I wish you dozens of pterodactyls.
See you in 2011!
