If you follow John Green on Twitter or his other social media networks, prepare for a slow down in posts.
The author announced Monday morning that he’s taking a break from social media in order to focus on writing his next book.
“Hi! So I am going on a social media hiatus beginning today while I work on a new story. I’ll return when I’ve made substantive progress,” he said on Twitter. “There are several reasons for the hiatus, I guess, but the biggest one is that I need to get some writing done.”
John elaborated further on Tumblr. “I’ve also had a difficult few months in terms of dealing with my mental illness, which is a chronic (but treatable!) part of my life, and I’m hopeful that taking a step back from online life will help me regain some equilibrium.”
The Fault in Our Stars author said he wasn’t sure how long the break would last.
John’s most recent book was Fault in 2012. Since then he’s been busy with a slew of projects, including the book to film adaptations of Fault and Paper Towns. Adaptations of Looking For Alaska and Let it Snow are also now in development.
We asked John about the progress on his seventh book while visiting the sets of Fault and Paper Towns in 2013 and 2014. Both times the author admitted he’s been too busy to make any serious progress, but did confirm he had something in development.
It’s pretty common practice for authors to make changes to their lives while writing. For example, George R.R. Martin recently scaled back his schedule in order to make headway on Winds of Winter.
Whenever it’s complete, John’s next book will surely receive a ton of attention thanks to the gigantic success of The Fault in Our Stars.
With Hobbs and Shaw officially a success, it’s time for the Fast and Furious franchise to consider other spinoff films to keep the franchise going in perpetuity.
