So as most of you know, I went to Israel at the end of last month.
While on the trip, I would write a sentence or two each day so I could still click yes on my Commit app (I’m currently at 288 days in a row) but for the most part it was a writing break.
I didn’t think of my manuscript at all other than the less than five minutes each day where I would write something down before going to sleep.
For me, this hasn’t been helpful for my writing because now that I’m back, I’ve been in a funk.
My desire to write has plummeted.
There are some people who find it helpful to step away from their manuscripts and give themselves a break from writing before coming back to look at it with new eyes.
That doesn’t work for me.
Taking breaks from one novel may help but I always work on one of my other projects when I do that.
One or two days of just jotting down a sentence or two may be good but ten days was not helpful.
Now I need to force myself out of this funk so I can get my manuscript rolling again.
