I recently went on an editing binge. Every moment that my children didn't need me, I pulled out my laptop and did some hard core edits. I rewrote chapters, I strengthened characters throughout, I fixed minuscule details other's noticed but I hadn't, and more.
I thought when I had finished, I could jump into the next book with the same vigor.
But I'm so tired.
I decided to take a break instead. I've only been on break for less than a week, and I can feel my desire to write returning.
I'm on my fourth book (reading).
I've Netflix binged more than I'd like to admit. Heh heh...
I've spent extra time with my kids, playing puzzles and reading more books than we normally do.
[Pretend I have a picture of my disaster house here.] :)
I crocheted gifts for friends with kids. Like an Anger hat for my friend's baby:
Or a dress for my other friend's baby on the way:
This one is my favorite. I made a TMNT Hat/Mask for my son's friend's birthday, but then my son wanted one too:
My two year old is so cute. And oh hey, you can see some of the mess in my house! :)
Anyway, my point is--Breaks are good.
What do you do on your break from writing?
