Today I relaxed.
There was no writing, no reading and no blogging (until now). I decided since the weather was nice to spend the day enjoying the sunshine.
It occurred to me that I should take a little break.
I love writing, and everything that goes along with it, but I also needed some time away from the laptop. I needed to refresh my tired brain and get into the real world. So I did.
Writing is such a solitary occupation. Sitting for hours staring at a screen with these characters who are only real to you. You type words on to the blank page and wonder where it is going to go. You drink ridiculous amounts of caffeine to keep your brain awake when it protests you need to sleep.
I've read a few posts on blogs about balance and taking a breather from your wip to come back refreshed. And it's true.
So here is to hoping you all take some time to enjoy life away from the laptop this weekend. And here is to coming back refreshed and ready to tackle your wip again.
Happy Saturday :)
