Time Out

I am taking a time-out.

Coming my way are family, travel, and other assorted madness, and my writer-brain is simply not functioning as it ought.

I haven’t been able to think clearly enough to write in a little while, beyond a few lines here and there. And while I definitely do not disparage a few lines here and there, this doesn’t feel like a block. This feels more like brain-overload.

I know what comes next. I just don’t have the head-room to write it.

So consider this an official break. Things will lighten up in a week or two (after the anniversary of this, more specifically), and I shall then resume. In the meantime, here is a truly awesome video of five people playing on one guitar. Enjoy!


A three-times bestselling author, Ruthanne Reid has led a convention panel on world-building, taught courses on plot and character development, and been the keynote speaker for the Write Practice Retreat. Author of two series with five books and fifty-plus short stories, Ruthanne has lived in her head since childhood, when she wrote her first story about a pony princess and a genocidal snake-kingdom and used up her mom’s red typewriter ribbon in the process. When she isn’t reading, writing, or reading about writing, Ruthanne enjoys old cartoons with her husband and two cats, and dreams of living on an island beach far, far away. P.S. Red is still her favorite color.
