And not a lot to show for it – well, other than that I feel like I’m on track. Which is probably a strange thing to say, seeing as I haven’t gotten anything done. But I am back from the brink of sleepless insanity, I feel so great about the fact that we’ve got a new car (in laws are picking it up for us today!), and Lauren’s sleep seems to be getting sorted out that the other stuff doesn’t really matter.
Man, I need to say stuff like that more often. There are always going to be excuses/reasons that we’re not writing (goodness knows that I and many other writers I know can find one very easily). But I think it takes a fair bit of confidence in oneself to say that you are not writing because you’re choosing not to write, because you’re enjoying not writing for a period of time.
We all need to top up the tanks, and there are a million ways that one can do that – whats important is that we DO it. Without the excuses. Without the reasons. It is enough to simply not write because its enjoyable, because you need the down time.
And I think thats about all I have to say. I’m enjoying not writing right now as well. The words will still be there later.
