Ssshhhh, Writer At Work...

July 1, 2008
This photo was taken by my wife. Based on the location of the brown chair, it must be in December because the christmas tree takes the chair's spot and the chair gets shoved over by the couch.

Yes, as you can see, I'm hard at work.

Which is a reminder: hey, it's July. Have you had a writing vacation lately?

Sometimes you just need to recharge your batteries. Most professional writers I know are practically obsessive-compulsive and feel like, "If I don't write every day, I'll lose the ability."

That is to say, we're all neurotic lunatics.

Ohmigosh, I was JUST going to write a post about guilt and taking breaks. I do get rusty if I take a day off writing, though.

But it's to the point where I feel guilty if I'm not working. Heck, last night I felt guilty for cleaning. This weekend I felt guilty for listening to music for a few hours, and reading for a few more.

It's out of control!

The day after I hit "send" on my latest manuscript, I intend to be snoozing on my sofa just like that! I always take a week or two or three break after finishing a book, depending on what's up next.

hehe I take off every weekend. But I spend enough time in angsty nonwriting times that I don't "deserve" a vacation. When I can work like a real writer for awhile, then I'll deserve one.

Basically me taking a break right now would be akin to a 22 year old wanting to retire.

I just took two months off from fiction, for a number of reasons. One had to do with my getting back into articles, so I needed that creative energy. Another had to do with a new friendship that was consuming a lot of emotional energy (not in a bad way though). It was one of those times where I figured I was "experiencing life" and would get back to fiction soon enough.

Sure enough... even though this month promises to be my busiest in a long long time, I'm still making room for fiction. I'm ready. And looking forward to it!
