For years I have said that I can do six things at a time, but the second you add a seventh, I’m done. I get overwhelmed, and nothing gets done very well. Over the past two years, I’ve had to increase that number more and more because I kept adding things without pruning others back. As my kids got older, we added things like college and boyfriends and fiancés, followed by diplomas and further education and upcoming weddings. I went back to teaching–just a couple of classes a week, but it all adds up.
Along the way, I kept writing, and for the most part, I somehow fit that in around everything else. Add to that trying to market in an increasingly difficult environment, owning and operating two businesses, and of course keeping up with two very connected extended families, and….
Well, you get the picture.
In the midst of everything, I’ve had the opportunity to start teaching small classes about personal growth and finances, which have both been huge blessings. The problem is that there are only 24 hours in a day, and doing one thing means you can’t be doing something else. So when it came time to renew my commitment to InspyRomance, I had to be honest. I have loved being here and sharing with all of you and getting to have a conversation with readers every month, but my well for what to write about is running dry.
It’s probably because I’m doing so many other things that to have the margin to be creative in finding ideas for posts has become more and more of a challenge.
You come here for inspiration and fun, and it’s been great to provide that since InspyRomance started. But I think, for the time being, I’m admitting to myself and to you that we’re coming up with more sand at the bottom of the well every month.
So, my dear friends and readers, for now, this is goodbye in this format. You will still be able to find my new books on Amazon, and I do have a Facebook Group, Staci’s FAN-tastic Readers if you’d like to find me over there.
I wish you all Happy Reading, and many, many thanks for your graciousness during my time here!
