Summer Writing Break

Taking A Break

So… I’ve been absent for a little while. Which I have to admit was probably a little jolting for you, the reader. Especially, as I was doing so well. There’s a reason for that. 

I needed a break.

Yep that’s it. 

But as easy as it is to say. It was hard for me to admit. I knew I needed one ever since I posted, A Pen. My Queendom for a Good Pen. But I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I thought, if I just kept going. If I just kept pushing and doing things on time then I would keep doing good work and get better. But as the lack of blog posts after The Spider and The Fly proves, that is not the case. 

I needed a break and whether I wanted to admit it or not my creative brain was on hiatus. This was made clear to me when I sat down to try and write and got nowhere except frustration alley.

So what have I learned..,

-listen to myself.

Your body and mind are telling you this information for a reason. Either you listen voluntarily or it will make it happen in a way that isn’t always the best. Essentially, when it’s time to take a break, it is time to take a break.

I guess that is also part of the writing process, learning your unique writing rhythm. What works, what doesn’t and when to take a breather.

However, good news is that my brain is slowly but surely making its way online. So look forward to our regularly scheduled posts starting on August 8th. 

Thank you all for being patient and I hope that you are having a great summer break as well.
