I'm forcing myself to take time off from writing or editing for a few days -- I started this break on Friday. Do you ever do this? It's sort of killing me to do it, but I've written like a mad woman for six months with few breaks, and I'm at a point where I think that if I don't take a break, I'll get sick of it, or my stories will suffer.
So what do normal people do when they take a break? I have no idea. But here's what I'll be doing today:
1. VOTE and mail in my ballot
2. Wrap birthday presents
3. Read a book
4. Take out the recycling
Is there something else I should be doing? I mean, besides housework. I'm sitting here, out of sorts, and salivating when I think of opening up my latest rough draft and start editing.
But I guess that's the purpose. I need to get to the point where I can't go another minute without getting back to work. Maybe tomorrow.
Now you -- tell me what you do.
