Refresh

06 Dec

With NaNo done (well, at least until next April’s camp session) I find myself in a bit of a writing slump.

Perhaps “slump” isn’t the best word. I don’t have writer’s block or anything. I just haven’t been writing as much lately. Compared to the race that NaNo was last month, I’m sure many people take the time to slow down, give their wrists a rest and all, from typing away.

How long do you typically take to pause your creative muscles and refresh yourself before taking on a new or continuing an epic project? Or perhaps you’re the type who is always on the go with your stories, never running out steam due to copious amounts of coffee?

I still dabble with writing even during my “down times” of course, nothing too serious, but it’s definitely good to give my brain a bit of a break once in a while. With the holidays just around the corner, I need to rest up and brace myself!

    I think I somewhat “refreshed” during NaNo actually. There were two projects I was working on, but when I started getting behind, I started lagging and thought I’d be out of the race. Then I had a dream that led to a new story idea, that I wrote 12K on in a single day and then 5K on the next. It’s not great writing, but it pulled me up to par and over the finish line three days before the end of NaNoWriMo.

    After that, I took a break for the rest of the month (all three days of it) before hitting the ground running with one of the original two I was working on. My goal was to write 2K a day, but my end goal is 62K for the month, so while I haven’t always been meeting my 2K daily goal, I am still on par to meet my 62K end goal.

      That’s perfect! That’s a great way of looking at NaNo too – having the freedom to just write without worrying about the editing can be very refreshing for a writer. Glad it all worked out for you! 🙂
