Hello From Hibernation

It’s embarrassing how terrible I am with sticking to my obligations (that I set myself, mind you) when my health is terrible and I’m feeling awful. It’s like I just go into this state of hibernation and disconnect from almost every platform just because I don’t have it in me to project thoughts, ideas and goals outwards in a coherent form because I need all my energy to deal with the processes going on inside of me, mentally and physically. And there has been a lot of that lately, a lot, and because I made this blog in part because I wanted to use it as a platform to offer a window into the life of a chronically ill person, as well as it being an outlet for me, I have promised myself to break some of it down in a post, and that has taken some psyching up on my part, but I hope to do it soon. I have also promised myself to do better with this blog, because consistency is key and I need something to be consistent in my right life now, as so much else is proving to be very unpredictable.

During this hiatus I’ve also begun the process of sending out query letters to literary agents regarding one of my books, and I’ve also planned on sharing what it was like working to get that process going, and why my very first rejection letter was one of the best things that has happened to me.

If you’re still here after my hiatus, thank you and hello! I’ll do my best to do better, I promise! Fingers crossed I have the self control to persevere!

  1. Lovely to hear from you Martie. I’ve been missing you of late, but I’m sorry to hear it’s ill health that’s kept you from blogging. I fondly thought you were out having fun. I totally understand the tendency to turn inwards because that’s all you have energy for but I’m slowly learning that continued connection is really helpful — in whatever way you can manage. thank you for connecting with us xx

    1. Ah thank you for the well wishes! Yes, I agree, continued connection is always really helpful, in this case I needed to connect with myself and work through some old wounds in order to move forward. It was a very interesting and educational experience!
