Book Retreat & Storytelling Break

As launch month for my latest high concept picture book, Bugaboo-Bee’s Bop: Patience for the Prize, comes to a close in the next week, I am taking joy in a job well done. BUT . . .

[Tweet “With every job well done, we need to take a break from all the doing.”]

Just a BLOGGING BREAK, mind you. I have a full plate and just can’t eat it all!

There’s a three day Multicultural Festival where I’m a feature storyteller in performance to make room for, some practical re-arranging to do on the work and home front to prepare for the huge CHAP Homeschool Convention, plus Founder’s Day! And literary adventures with Haley as we dive deep to mine out all the treasures in The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Whew! Are you exhausted just reading about all that? I sure am!

Along the way I’ll be gathering gems to share with my readers here at The Writer’s Reverie in the hopes that my literacy lifestyle will inspire yours. 

But that means a bit of a break to retreat, retool, and rest just prior to another burst of busy and books!

I’ll pop back in to share the May issue of Ruby for Women and highlight my feature article planned that month. And I hope you’ll check out my archives–5 years of good things and beauty to read through and be renewed.

When I return I’ll have some great material on each of these events to spark creativity and family literacy action!

[Tweet “You see, when I’m breaking from blogging–I’m retreating to READ.”]

That’s right. Just me and one of my pleasure reading books from the mountains of cozy mysteries, classic works, and even a couple of Georgette Heyer regencies. Not sure which I’ll be reading–but I WILL curl up with something in-between all the way-too-busy.

Meanwhile, may you mine your own golden insights from the quality words you’re reading. Be choosy–you’re feeding your soul and spirit!

Spread all good things and beauty abroad to enrich hearts and minds to live with purity and purpose in a world desperate for restoration that only higher thoughts and humble spirits can endow–through the grace of God.

    Enjoy your well-deserved rest. You have certainly done well, good and faithful servant of the Lord! All best wishes for great success as you send the messages of God’s love to so many people.

    Happy Mother’s Day, dear friend, and GOD BLESS!

    • Hi Sharon! Thanks for the good wishes–but I am hardly resting. In flail mode as I get materials ready for the CHAP homeschool convention this week. Just couldn’t be blogging and working at the same time. Not sure when I’ll be back. Working on balance, but this is a super busy time. Prayers appreciated for our ministry to homeschool families this week!
