I've spent a lot of the last few (maybe six) months taking large breaks from writing. I've had to jump in with some serious mothering and house-wifing. Plus there was summer and sunshine and water. How can a person write when there's sunshine and water?
But I think it's okay. To take breaks, I mean.
For example, I haven't written at all this week. Instead I've been working my fingers to death on the sewing machine.
Here's what I've made:
Black Widow costume (from the Avengers)
A Newsie! (Broadway version, of course)
And a Spiderman costume for my sixteen-year-old which involves a spidey skirt and kick-ass tee
My back aches and my eyes hurt almost as much as a good day of writing. So, it sort of feels like I was writing. Does that count?
Do you take breaks? Or, more importantly, what are you going to be for Halloween.
