I’ll be brief and I’m going to be honest with you. Lately, I haven’t felt like writing anything. I have felt a sickening pressure to write and it really just gives me the worst writer’s block.
It’s a pressure I put upon myself, but when you write nonstop and you also work a full time job there’s always a point where something gives.
And I don’t want to be the type of zombie person who works all the time and never has time for herself. You end up making sacrifices and for me, the first thing to go is my leisurely love of reading books.
I hate being this way. I hate being uninspired and stressed out and reading words, but not really absorbing them. This is why I’ve decided to take a two-week vacation from writing.
You’re seeing this on the cusp of week two, so I’ll be back soon. I just felt like I should say something to you all so you’re not worried I’ve disappeared for good. I’m sorry, I sometimes disappear like that.
In the meantime, I’m going to be writing offline (in my journal) and just enjoying reading. I’ll be back with some great reviews, definitely some more posts, and hopefully a plan for 2018. I want to be able to give you all some great reads as well as give myself some time to decompress.
It’s always good to take a vacation every once in a while. Your body needs to decompress otherwise you end up getting sick. I want to take the pressure of writing something to you off so I don’t end up writing something stupid. I mean, my last idea was writing a blog post about all the best snacks to eat while reading. Maybe that is something you’d want to read from me :).
I will be back in a week! I just want to take the time to read and enjoy the beautiful snow here in New Jersey before I look up from my computer and the winter has become spring.
I do hope you understand! I wouldn’t want to disappoint you, but I need to do this for myself. I’ll see you all soon!

That’s fine, Simone! Sometimes inspiration can be tough and it’s better to take a break than to lose the entire love for that particular thing. Enjoy your vacation, have fun and be back soon ❤
Thanks so much! Yeah I think I’ve been burnt out for a while and needed a break. It was starting to get piled up and my stress levels were skyrocketing!

I think that taking a break is ALWAYS a great idea, especially when something you would normally enjoy begins to feel more like a chore. And, yes, I definitely want to hear about ALL the snacks. 🙂
Definitely! I completely understand. You need some well-deserved “me time.” Hope you enjoy and get to read good books 🙂
