Quiet Time

I’m in the middle of one of those spells when blogging doesn’t feel like a productive use of my time. Sometimes it’s easy, because I’m trying to be useful but I’m ultimately doing it for my own amusement, so I don’t mind so much that my sister is usually the only one leaving comments.

It’s not amusing right now though. The never-enoughness, the needing-to-be-seen-ness, the ultimate futility of social media and book promotion is really bumming me out.

Most of the time I consider myself an optimist. Not today though, and that’s okay.

I’ll be back when it’s fun again.

    Hi. This makes me sad. I’m so sorry I’ve been so out of touch. I know I hate just the feelings you describe above. Know that there is so much love out there for you – especially from this lady! xo anne

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
