Remember that life happens // Day 35

As I'm writing this love note to you from my cottage in Central Florida, the strong and determined Hurricane Matthew is making his way here. We expect the effects of his forceful presence will reach us sometime tomorrow.

Which is to say, life happens.

This 100-day series was meant to be consecutive — no days off. But it's possible I'll be losing electricity and wifi through this storm. So I'm forcing a series hiatus until all is calm again.

Sometimes that's the choice we have to make. We can't barrel through a hurricane, no matter the goals we've set. Mother Nature is stronger than us and our goals.

If life is happening in a big-time way for you, writer, it's okay to call a hiatus on your book. It will be there when you get back. Let yourself tend to your life.
