The only problem was, in terms of the flow of thing I’m involved in, the trip came at a pretty bad time, and that’s ok. Let me explain.
A few weeks ago, I finished major revisions on my first novel and decided to set it aside for a while before doing one last read-through. I honestly meant to tackle this read-through during the vacation, and started it on the plane, but I just couldn’t find the will to concentrate and get it done. I didn’t pick it back up again until the plane ride home.
Now, I don’t have a real deadline since I’m planning to self-publish on Amazon’s KDP, but I had a goal of September 7. I’m not going to make it, and I’m ok with that.
I needed to take the time and let my brain veg-out, so to speak. Maybe I won’t make my self-imposed deadline, but I think I’ll come out with a better product in the long run.
Sometimes you just need to take a break from the discipline you’ve built into your life so that you don’t burn yourself out. Temporarily give yourself some off-time every now and then and recharge your spirit.
Your work will be glad you did.
