Do you take a break from writing? I don’t like to, but sometimes I have to be realistic about what’s going on in my life.
This week, I drove from Winnipeg to Kingston (2000 km) with 3 adults, 3 kids and 3 dogs in one van.
Let me tell you, this in not an environment that is conducive to writing. I even missed posting a blog last Monday, which is a first for me.
So I tell myself, give myself a break. Let the writing be put on hold for a week and enjoy the family time.

I think sometimes a break can be beneficial: restful and reinvigorating. Enjoy!
Thanks Jan, I’m going to enjoy it and get back to work later. Sometimes it’s worth not taking these moments for granted.
I’m taking a break next week in fact. I don’t think taking a break is a bad thing at all. Stories have a way of ripening while I’m doing other things, and I come back with fresh energy and perspective.
Have fun with your family. 🙂
