This weekend I decided that a social media break was necessary. I finished setting up Loving the Bratva for pre-order and scheduled all my release activities one day before getting my new puppy. If you’ve ever gotten a new dog then you know how much time and energy has to go into caring for it. So in order to stay sane between being a new dog mom, preparing for my new release, and working full time I decided to take a social media break.
It’s been three days and I’ve already noticed some of my creative juices coming back. I haven’t been feeling very inspired lately. I have four book ideas that have been swimming around in my head but I’ve failed to get them down on paper. I don’t feel connected with the characters yet and although they still aren’t ready I’ve found myself day dreaming about them more.
I also start blogging again (obviously). Blogging was my first love before writing romance. I used to have a blog called MinimalistPrincess which was moderately successful while I was in college. I got burnt out and deleted it but I always enjoyed writing the post and creating the content for it. I was going to make a entirely new website devoted just to my blogging but I figured my readers might want to chance to know me outside of the books I write.
Over the years I’ve purposely kept my personal life pretty private and have limited my platform to only talk about book related things but I feel a need to explore some other parts of my creativity that have nothing to do with writing romance. With that said there will surely still be plenty of posts about indie publishing and romance books because it’s part of my life.
As for everything else…I’m not sure what I’m going to write about on here. I’m leaving it up to my intuition to guide me.
I’m excited to start this new regular blogging journey as well as see how this social media break goes. Wish my luck!
