Why is it that I feel like I can't take weekends off from writing?
I signed on here and felt a pang of guilt that my word meter hasn't moved all weekend. I worked my butt off last week - 130 or so pages - but yet, I feel like it wasn't enough.
Taking down time to recharge the mental batteries and refill the well is important. I mean, what would I have to write about if I didn't? The best ideas usually come after a break. It's not like my brain has totally shut down with thoughts of my work in progress. Last night I dreamt of my story and now have a germ of an idea that's floating through the enormous vacancy in my head. By the time I sit down again, I'll know what it is and where to put it. That's a cool thing.
Weekend writing time is a bonus. That's how I should view it. I need to get over myself. If I get time to write a few pages, great. If I don't, well, that's fine too.
Have a great holiday!
