Hello! Remember Me? – Where I’ve Been

Hello stranger, it’s been a good few weeks since I blogged and I’m here to tell you why.

So every now and again, everyone experiences times where life just gets ahead of them, you kind of just fall behind in everything. A mixture between book stuff, new responsibilities at work and being generally low in mood has really impacted me. I’ve been in a reading slump due to not really enjoying my current read and just not really having the time. The commutes have been really warm recently which has meant that I just don’t feel like sitting and reading a book on a packed train, particularly when someone is literally digging their elbow in my side. I just haven’t been very good at balancing finishing writing the book, editing it, blogging, reading, working full time and being really busy, chilling out and being a functioning adult. This then made me feel rubbish, which made me even less likely to do these things, hello vicious cycle!

I do want to take a moment just to talk about the mood aspect of all this. It’s not until now where I feel like I’m getting out the other side where I realised just how low I felt. I just felt lethargic and unmotivated every day for at least two weeks. I’m glad I’ve now been able to recognise it and I’ll be able to recognise if it happens again.

I’m really thankful to have amazing friends, a great family and a fab boyfriend who I can rant to whenever I need it but sometimes, ranting to them didn’t even help and I found myself not wanting to burden them with my problems. (Which I now know, isn’t possible.) Either way I’m glad to be out the other side and I have plenty of things to look forward to:

  • My birthday
  • YA Prom
  • YALC
  • Book release

And then we’re into September ad I’ll be starting to plan Christmas! So honestly, I’m okay, I just needed a break.

I’m sure you all know where I’m coming from, thank you for bearing with me. I’ve got some really interesting posts coming up so I hope you’ll stick around. (Seriously, I’m SO excited for some of them!!!)

Follow me on twitter for updates on what I’m reading. Look at the Book Club here.

Thank you lovelies and happy reading! ox
