Even bloggers need to separate themselves for a little awhile from their writing. Yes, that means me, and if you, dear reader, are anything like me then I can guarantee that you need a break too. We need breaks from our passions, our hobbies, our work.
For the past two to three weeks, I have absent from the blogosphere by choice. I needed to renew my writing psyche, my writing soul. Sometimes, the burdens of life don’t simply wash out of my hair at the end of the day. Some stresses linger like pale white specters in the shadows—always there waiting for the perfect opportunity to wreck havoc. This is the perfect time for rest.
Of course, blogging wisdom and blogging gurus tell us that no blogging kills blogs, good blogs…So does bad writing, poor mental health, and stress of daily posts. I wonder if the lack of posting kills the blog or slowly ekes out of the blogger her desire to write. What are we really “killing” if we don’t blog everyday? Our blog? Our love for writing? Our sanity?
So, take a break. Read books about writing(I highly recommend Bird by Bird Anne Lamont). Learn a new skill(I learned to bake with yeast. Huge baking milestone). But in the end, renew yourself.
Question: What do you need a break from today?
