Taking Off

I finished the edits to the bodyguard book this AM, will print it tonight and mail it tomorrow.

Then I'm going to take the rest of the month off. You heard me. No writing. No, I'm not done with the short story (which isn't so short, already 60 pages). No, I don't have anything submitted to Samhain right now. Yes, I still have revisions to do on the road trip story, and I have tons of ideas. But I've been writing almost constantly for....well, years, and I want to take some time off. I want to read and paint my bedroom and clean my house and crochet and maybe sew. I want to watch TV and surf the internet and play video games without guilt.

And I have some GH entries to read, not to mention a ton of books. So I'm not going to write anything for three weeks.

Anyone want to take bets on whether I'll make it?

I took almost 6 weeks off after NaNo and I think my brain really needed the break. When I started back this week I felt totally energized and eager to get back at it.

Last night I wanted to get up and write, but I got up and read instead ;)

Good for you, Mary! You deserve the break! Enjoy every minute of it!

Last night while watching TV, I tried playing video games on my phone and crocheting but nothing kept my interest. I wonder how long until I learn how to relax?

Probably just about at the end of your three weeks. LOL
