I needed a break for one. I hadn't really taken a break at all since I started almost 2 years ago. Plus this COPPA and FTC stuff is a royal pain for all creators. To be honest, I have neglected my writing a lot. I started several new books and never finished them. I actually had a cover made for a book more than a year ago and still haven't finished the book! I mean, who has a cover for a book before the book is even finished? That's usually the last thing you do. Regardless, I want to spend more time on my writing and just wrap up the projects I started. I have 16 books under my belt and have at least 5 more started. I really hate to be one of those people who start things and don't finish them.
I think I might be back in January, it just depends on whether I get all of my books typed in.
