Ever just plain run out of gas? Nothing left in the tank to power the engine that cranks out your work?

That’s how I feel lately. For some reason, when I reach down for an idea or inspiration, nothing seems to come out. I feel like I’ve been forcing words onto the blog posts lately instead of letting them flow. Same with my W.I.P.

Rather than cheat readers with substandard work, I’ve decided to take a small sabbatical. It may be two weeks, or it may be a month. I don’t know. I’ll still be with you on Facebook and emails, but no new posts for a little while and probably little or no work on my current novel.

Please bear with me. I’ll be back—hopefully roaring back with new and interesting stuff for you to read.


Writers may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

  6. David – Take your time to enjoy the beauty and grace God has grated you for living each day to the fullest. Blessings to you that you found this time within yourself and recognized you needed a much needed break. You have been going full steam ahead since I first met you way back when and I appreciate your presence in my life. God bless, my friend. We’ll be here waiting for you on your return. Sheri

    I really can relate to running out of gas … or ideas. Take it easy, enjoy your sabbatical, and don’t pressure yourself. I hear that writers’ block can result from expectations such as that.


  8. See you on Facebook, David. Cheers, Ashley

    I understand and concur with you. Have enjoyed your blogs. Maybe they should be written sporadically whenever you’re inspired. Love you forever ~ Wife
