Merriam-Webster dictionary defines haitus as “a: an interruption in time or continuity: break; especially: a period when something (such as a program or activity) is suspended or interrupted.”

An example of word usage is: I am taking a hiatus from all things writing for an undetermined length of time.  

Often times, one may discover challenges seem insurmountable, the course convoluted, doubts and confusion overwhelming and the way forward unclear. Such is my juncture. Therefore I am taking a writing hiatus.
