Wait. What? You want to know if there's someone else?
Of course I remember the day we shared my book deal in PM. I agree that was a happy day. But what I didn't like was how you continued to rub the other deals - the BIGGER deals in my face. I don't need that kind of pressure, Internets. I used to be thrilled with that fact that I was getting published. But you kept telling me that that wasn't good enough. And you see, I really don't need that kind of negativity in my life.
You'll also find a couple other things of yours in that box. A couple industry blogs and things like that. You see, you've smothered me. I can't possibly spend all the time with you that you're demanding AND write AND spend time with my family. I hope you understand. You might want to think about getting a puppy.
Also, I hope you don't mind but I'm keeping the Email, Twitter, and Facebook you gave me. They were a gift after all.
Anyway, it's only been a couple of weeks since I started avoiding you and I'm already happier. That alone speaks volumes. I'm sorry I had to break up with you on this very public forum but, as you can see, it's for the best.
How about you? What hobbies, tips, or techniques do you have for keeping your writerly battery charged?
