    Status Report: Notes from Sabbatical – 100120:

    I’m still taking things day by day. I really burnt myself out good so am simply easing my way back into creating and doing some of the peripheral tasks for it (like tweaking stories).

    I honestly don’t know how long this burn out will last. I’ve been burnt out before and it took months to recover. Couple that with my chronic health issues and I don’t know when things will get back to normal. All I can do is try and put one foot in front of the other.

    I’m still taking on freelance work, however, and that work gets priority over the other things I’ve been doing so if you’re looking for an editor, I’m available. Please see my rates page here.

    Anyway, just wanted to keep everyone in the loop.

    Status Report: Notes from Sabbatical – 090420:

    On top of 2020 putting a wrench into my plans, I simply burnt myself out going 1000mph and wrecked my health as a result. It took all of August to rest up enough to start working again, and by working, I mean getting back into creativity. The difference now–and due to being careful with my health–is I’m working at a much slower pace.

    I know you’re used to regular content from me, but that’s something I cannot provide right now. Right now the goal is to ease back into creating and go at a pace that doesn’t destroy me.

    I’m feeling a lot better after a month’s rest, but I still have a ways to go in terms of recovery so self-care has been the priority these days and I’m taking things one day at a time, sometimes even one moment at a time.

    There are no deadlines. There are no promises. Just simply creating art for the joy of it and telling you about it when appropriate.

    Anyway, I hope you are all doing well.

    Dear reader:

    After much careful thought and deliberation and self-reflection, I’ve decided I’m going to take a sabbatical from the way I currently do my work. For how long, I’m not sure. What I do know is my health requires a much-needed break from going at 1000mph. I’ve been pushing hard for about a year and it’s taken its toll. That said, I’ll still be making art behind the scenes because I can’t help myself, but in terms of the rat race that is the arts business, I’m going to take a break from it and take the time to recharge and restore.

    This means I’m doing an All Stop on publishing new and old work, including Fredrikus and the newsletter.

    I will still be doing any freelance work that comes in.

    I look forward to catching up with you guys once my health improves.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Sincerely,

    A.P. Fuchs
