Unscheduled Outage

27 June 2012

You know how you’re not even aware you’re doing something until someone else points it out? It might be a new stall word you’ve picked up (unconsciously saying “y’know” after every few words). It might be a physical tick, like cracking your knuckles every few minutes. Point is, you’re not really aware you’re doing any of it — not consciously, anyway.

As with most realizations in my life, this one came courtesy of my wife.

These past couple of months, I’ve spent every day in the author zone — writing, promoting, revising, researching. I’ve spent almost no time in a regular-person zone — relaxing, hanging out with other people, not stressing myself out over all of the stuff mentioned in the author zone. I’ve been working in excess of 70 hours a week, and no employer would get away with that.

So, last night and today, I’m taking it easy, catching up on some reading and taking a few days off. If I’m quiet for a bit, that’s why. 😉

Hey! Supercritical is out now! You can get it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Carina Press, Diesel, Audible, and the Sony Reader Store! Go ahead and buy several copies so I can continue to rant at you daily. 😉

    You deserve a break man. I mean, I like it when you take a flamethrower to the candle, but you gotta top off the tanks again sometime! Enjoy the holiday, then eventually come back to updates fresh.

    70 hours is a bit much- take some time to recharge yourself!
