Just a Phase

7 Sep

1958673I’m beginning to wonder if my passion for writing–especially in the genre I’ve chosen–was a bit of a phase that stemmed from dissatisfaction with the romantic relationships I’d experienced.  Now that I’m happily married and expecting a little one, I’ve made what feels like a seamless transition into a mothering phase.  That’s not to say I’ll never write again (there are too many unfinished manuscripts on my hard drive to allow such laziness); however, taking a break has been inevitable–even needed.

There are many successful authors who have found the perfect balance between  partners, children, and even their occupations to continue churning out prose at an astonishing rate; it appears as though I’m not one of them.

Writing has always been an escape for me, a way to leave behind my life for a little while and create a new world to share with others.  Right now, I’m not looking for an escape 🙂


Happy reading, writing, and living.
