Skip Day

Anyone following my blog knows that I’m busy this month with art and craft shows. This week I rested after 2 events in a row. I was able to blog but I had some skip days this week and I’m not feeling guilty about it.

I ended the week back on track with another post but I’m going to see what my summer schedule will be as we move into next month. Past experience tells me that having rest days for your brain allow for a flourish later. Having breaks from stories allowed me to solve plot holes. Trying to write in empty has only left me with more scrap piles than something I can publish.

As we head into the heat of the summer, remember, a few skip days are okay as long as you don’t stop all together. Think of it as setting a new rhythm or writing routine.

Since it is Friday, give your mind a break. Take a skip day with plans to return to your notebook later. For those who don’t want a skip day, keep on writing. I don’t know if you noticed but those week has been about free writing. Write about what you want for 5-10 minutes.

My posts are Monday to Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
