Delays are unfortunate, but in some cases it allows us to pause and consider everything going on around us. We are all going full steam ahead in our day-to-day lives; we never really stop to relax, and when we do—whether in a staycation or at a place far from home—we worry about what needs to be done in the back of our minds.
I tend to push myself a lot when it comes to work; I don’t stop until a project is done, and even then work is not completely over. However, these past few weeks have shown that even though I’m writing (and working), I’m not superhuman. I may think it, but I most definitely am not. I guess that’s part of my perfectionistic tendencies.
That brings me to the reason for this post: My next novel will be delayed by one month, and should be out by May 21st, 2017. This is a decision that is the result of me not wanting to rush out content, as well as to better take care of my health.
Aside from the next “From the Muse’s Bookshelf” post, which will focus on Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” I hope to meet you all once more next month.
