I just had a break in my life. I went out in Europe on a short trip, and did not write at my book, or any poems, or anything in my blog. I’m sure you noticed that. Now I am back at home, full of ideas to my upcoming book, my poems, my writing, my blog and my life 🙂
Someone told me once that “You can always do more out of something, but nothing out of nothing”. It was ment to make me realize how important it is to write every day. Just write, and then you can improve whatever you have written. But I just realised that sometimes it´s good to take a break from everything.
To rest is to load your batteries. My brain works very well if I don’t mess with it. If I put trust in my personal writing process, the process works well. The more I mess with it, the worse it gets. I have felt that before, it´s my own personal experience. Sometimes I´m sitting with a chapter, cannot think of how to continue it. Then I leave to do something else, and suddenly I have a million ideas.
For me a break can be to do something else – a cup of coffee for example. Or to talk with other people, to travel, to take a walk, to clean my house. It really doesn´t matter what I do, as long as I use the break.
How do you break in your life?
