summer-hiatusI often encourage writers to take a break, have some down time, and intersperse long seasons of pouring out with seasons of getting filled up. So I’m taking my own advice this summer. I’m taking a break.

It’s long overdue. After writing/editing nearly 70 published book projects and writing more than 3,000 devotionals, it’s time to dial it back a little—temporarily. So in the spirit of high schoolers everywhere—and in sync with the beginning of my son’s summer break—I’m off the blogs until around Labor Day.

For those of you who subscribe to one of my regular emails, here’s what that means:

Main Blog (the one still without a name): This is the last post until the fall, at which time you’ll get an out-of-the-blue email from me some Monday and think, “Oh yeah, there’s that blog again.”

The Better Words Blog for writers: The Wednesday post and the Friday tip of the week will be off next week, then at the beginning of June, I’ll start posting reruns until the fall. So those of you who haven’t subscribed since the beginning (which is most of you) will hardly notice a difference. You’ll still get the weekly post and tip after next week. If you have been a subscriber from the beginning, the posts and tips may seem vaguely redundant. Sorry, but maybe they will fall in the category of “helpful reminder” instead of “pointless repetition.”

Faith.Hope.CoffeeBreak e-devotional: No difference here. Most are already written, and I’ll continue to publish them through September, at which point the cycle will start all over again. So there will be no interruption in the daily readings.

Thanks for subscribing, and have a great summer!

Yes No   I just want to express my appreciation. I've been listening to the CDs from Mount Hermon and your workshops are great. I get your devotions and writing blog tips and find them inspiring and helpful. Okay, maybe appreciation isn't a strong enough word. Make that admiration. Thanks for all you give.

Yes No   Have a fun and relaxing break, Chris. I do hope that you get a chance to explore nature a bit. My hubby and I just came back from a 6 day RV camping trip to the Olympic National Park. I feel renewed with a new charge of focus and energy for writing my monthly devotional, "Hummingbird Whisperings," for my church newsletter. I so appreciated your tip of the week, The "OneThing" Rule. I am more focused on my message by using your advice. Thanks! rolleyes

Yes No   Thanks, Dottie! I wish I'd taken that picture -- I would love to have been on that beach. But no, I got that one from somewhere else. I love it, though.
