(“Something’s Gotta Give” – words and song by Johnny Mercer; 1954)

Not easy for those who wear the crown of “Indie Author”! Write. Proofread and Edit. Synopsis. Cover Design. Market and Promote. Shoulder Responsibilities. Juggle Lemons.

With no option to dodge responsibilities, or those proverbial lemons hurled our way, something’s gotta give.

For me, it’s reading. Ever since I got back in the saddle after falling out of it for eight-nine years, I’ve made a commitment to read and review books written by fellow Indies. However, since I’ve stepped up my writing game, my pleasure reading has fallen by the wayside.

For my own sanity…

Having just finished writing a novella for an upcoming anthology, I’ve decided to moonlight for the month of December by not tackling any in-depth writing project. I’ll wait until January of 2018 to begin working on my next full-length novel. In the meantime, I intend to step up my reading in an attempt to make a dent in my TBR pile.

I’ll consider this one of my New Year’s resolutions.
