Monday Musings: Taking a Break

We all need breaks from time to time, and this is one of those times for me.

I’ve realised I need some behind the scenes time. I’ll still be creating – writing stories, painting, doodling and strumming on my uke. I’ll be reading, observing and thinking.

I’ll still be in and out of social media and my blog, but just occasionally. You’ll still get big updates like when something’s been published or when Jane has illustrations for the next book.

I’m working 7 days at the moment and my brain’s going slightly mad.

Keep in touch & happy art making!

  • Good on you Zee … it’s been a massive year and all the “little” jobs soon add up to a lot of work time. Hope this is a restful and restorative period and thanks for the myriad of ways you have helped people this year. Deborah x

      There has been so much learning and change and as you said, all the little things do add up! Thank you x

  • I understand where you are coming from. Picking up extra responsibilities always takes a bit of time to find balance. Hope everything is going alright and as always if you need anything let me know 🙂

      Thanks Amanda. Will flick you an email but I’m good – just need some time to focus on production and getting systems / routine in place, especially in terms of admin stuff 🙂

  • Hey Zee!

    You’re not alone — we’ve all been there. It’s good to see you are taking care of yourself. This whole creative thing should be fun & fulfilling.

    I DM you on Twitter with details on the system I use to keep things on track & avoid burning out. Hope this helps.

    Keep up the great work! ??

  • Enjoy your break. 🙂
