In life, we need a break, a holiday, and day on the sofa before we burnout. Why would writing be any different?
I felt a burn out brewing last week, so I took a three days off writing. It might not sound like much since not everyone writes daily. I do. Between my novels, short stories and blogs, I write every day.
I tend to balance my primary WIP with my other writing so as not to overload my brain with one project. I’ve been so immersed in mine that I forgot to come up for air. My creative brain was running on fumes while the rest of me was just about doing okay.
I seemed to have been hit with a bunch of life stuff all at once again. I blame Covid since just about all of it stems back to the virus in some form or another. But I’ve ploughed through as best I can, and things are settling again.
I took a long weekend to just relax without feeling like I’m missing out. I dabbled in blogging, I played a lot of music, which has taken a back seat to my writing, and I finally watched The Rise of Skywalker having missed it last Christmas because I was ill. Thank you, Disney +.
Now I’m ready for another stint of edits and whatever life throws at me again.
Here’s a fun Imagine Dragons track for you.
