Combined technical and physical difficulties have overwhelmed me. For this reason, I'm signing off the blog, newsletter, and social media until both situations improve.
Consistently, I'm seeing the benefits of giving in to self-care as a priority. When I return, hopefully by March 1st, my plans include the topic of self-care for everyone, but with an emphasis on creatives and the pressures we place on ourselves.
My promise to never stop writing doesn't need me to ignore caring for myself--and yes, my computer's needs when it cries out.
