Stepping Back A Bit

Lately, I have had to make the tough decision to step back from writing a bit. I won’t be going as hardcore as I was trying to write, but not getting much done because of stress and not balancing social media very well. Health conditions are also butting in and I am exhausted.

So I am going to step back a bit from social media and blogging, but I will continue to write a little bit of something every day if I feel up to it. Right now, until my health is figured out, I must do this.

I hate to, because I love to write and would love to full time, but it comes a point when something you used to love so much, is now nothing but a stressor. Just means a break for a while and to attack other areas that need attention and the down time will also give me time reevaluate things.

In the mean time, if I do post on this blog. It will be maybe once a month just to update everyone or if I have found something  of interest on writing or a good book. I guess we will see what happens.

God bless!

 

The Gluten Free Directory

Busy Day of Writing While Listening to The Creative Penn Podcast

Worked all day and most of the night on The Gluten Free Directory. I could work more, but I accomplished quite a bit and think I need to go rest for now. It’s after midnight where I am. Need my rest to take care of a sick husband and daughter tomorrow.

So I started out with only 44 companies offering gluten free products and I don’t just mean food. I am also referring to gluten free supplements, gluten free dog food too, something I was surprised to see. My list has grown to about 200 companies and my edit of this book has only just begun. Can you imagine how many companies I’ll have when this book is finished…well…tentatively finished, since it is a book that will constantly have to be updated to include the most up to date information.

This evening, while I was working on the book, I was listening to podcasts from Joanna Penn from The Creative Penn. Listening to her talk to other Indie authors and marketers is very inspiring and relaxing. I didn’t feel alone in my work, hearing other authors go through a lot to get a book written, published, and then marketed. Everyone seemed to have various methods on how they became successful.  Love this podcast and subscribed to it through iTunes. Highly recommend it.

I think podcasts may be in my future, but I need to read up about it. So we’ll see. Right now I’ll stick to You Tube, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Linked In, besides updating this blog.

So that is what I have been up today. Think it is about time to say good night. Will probably work on the book again tomorrow. Night everyone!
