Sometimes we all need a break. From reality. From our friends. From everything.
I usually never take breaks, but this time I had to. I had reached an impasse in my writing and I didn’t know what to do. I felt like I had done everything. I had started a new project, had abandoned it, had written short stories, had written several posts, had read a few new books on writing, had even taken classes purely for motivation’s sake.
I had done so much that I had exhausted myself. I felt like giving up.
So, I did.
I stopped doing, and I stopped cold turkey. I stopped writing for two weeks, something I had never done before. And something amazing happened!
