A breather… enforcing the quiet before the storm!

I’m off.
Folks, I need a break. A breather. Like my laptop, I’m running low on juice.

From today and through next week right up onto and including Monday, 13 August, I shall take myself into a voluntary, self-imposed, absolute and complete Internet blackout. I won’t be blogging, tweeting, or Facebooking. Or emailing, for that matter.

Drastic, huh? Four weeks before my book launch, too.
Bad timing, perhaps?

Nah, perfect timing! This is the creative break before the storm. Batteries on charge, and then full speed ahead…


It’s the school holidays. So I shall have a holiday! 😉 I am going to get up late, make lazy breakfasts, go to the park, take the bus into town, drive to the seaside if the fancy takes us.  I envisage evenings spent barbequeuing and sipping wine until late sitting in the garden. Making cakes and playdough and lego houses and playing games. Hooray!

With that, my friends: Hasta luego! See you soon, properly rested and in high spirits. And then it’ll be all systems go until launch (and beyond)!

  1. Enjoy your break Nikki and see you on the other side 🙂 x

  2. I’ve had a few lie-ins over the past two weeks, but i’m getting down to the writing now. It’s like a tag team!
    Have a great break and enjoy the rest of the holidays.

  3. I think a break sounds like a great idea. It’s important to have balance and our lives shouldn’t revolve around computers and work all the time. And I bet your family are going to love having you to themselves : ) Enjoy, kick back, relax. We’ll be here when you come back. And thank you for the wonderful comment on my Gunshot Glitter post! x x

  4. Nicky, you fully deserve this break. Good for you! Enjoy every minute of it and recharge those lovely, bubbly batteries of yours. Happy Holidays with your family (and may the sun continue to shine) 🙂 x x

  5. Enjoy, Nicky. You’ll be raring to go after a little downtime! Pssst, have you got a spare garden chair? 🙂 xx

  6. You’ll be amazed that the world is still going around even though you’ve had your head stuck in a computer all this time. To be honest, I can’t imagine being unshackled from the computer. Scary! I hope you survive. 😉

  7. Recharge those batteries! Chill and enjoy the kids – what’s coming next is going to be one of the busiest times ever with Sophie’s Turn about to launch! Yay! Have fun.

  8. Enjoy your break! 🙂

  9. Glad to hear it. After moving house and working on your new home like a whirling dervish, you more than deserve it! See you on the other side (I’ll miss you!)

  10. Yes, this will be the quiet before the storm. Enjoy your recharge!
