Making time for fun (and food) 🍜
Piranesi is my favourite audiobook, I’ve listened to it 3 times so far. I’m so glad you loved it too.
Such a good reminder to rest. I have a local author friend who has been on deadline for 2 years straight with Book 2 and Book 3, then you add in marketing and launching Book 2 while trying to draft an unplanned Book 3. Oof. Definitely not sustainable. If we don't fight for and protect our rest and mental health, the publisher will just keep asking for more.
<3 Best of luck with your unrushed edits
I would LOVE to visit Vietnam, so loving this update! I did two months working remotely and traveling in Europe this year, so I loved your sticky note. I had to remind myself of the same thing. And yes, when you're having fun, the hard work doesn't seem so daunting all the time :)
The resting part is SO important! It is a lesson I have to keep learning.
So glad you're taking care of YOU! That's the priority. The edits can wait, even if it makes me sad if you miss your (now earlier than thought) deadline. Have fun, breathe, and live life! <3
