Sometimes need to take a break from everything, even the things you love.
I like my job, I really do. But having a three day weekend here and there makes all the difference for my sanity.
Same thing with writing. I feel that to achieve your best writing, you need to take a day off from it. Give your creativity a chance to fuel up. Go on a walk when the weather is nice. Enjoy a nice dinner. Dance to something fun! (I’ve done all of these by the way).
I know, you might say “well you stop now, you might just not want to continuing writing!”. Well if you are truly the displinced writer you claim you are, then a day’s break isn’t going to turn into a bad habit.
I know there’s always deadlines to worry about, but even a short break can save you from writer’s insanity…though many consider us to be insane to begin with 😀
Just my thoughts. Everyone writes differently.
