Hello! Nice to see you again.
As summer comes to a close, I hope you are feeling rested, refreshed, and ready to get back to writing no seriously your book misses you.
Writing breaks are necessary. They’re important. They reacquaint you with such pleasures as nature, friends, family, and rosé.
But it can be tricky to return to writing and get back to a rhythm once you’ve gotten used to that whole “relaxing” thing. You may have been harshly reminded what it was like when you once had something called “free time.”
Don’t beat yourself up! Much like getting back into shape after you haven’t exercised in a while, it’s going to take some time to get back into a writing rhythm.
Here are some posts from the archives that can help you get back on track:
- On distractions
- How to return to writing after a long break
- How to get over writer’s block
- How to keep writing when the s*** hits the fan
- Five ways to stay motivated while writing a novel
- Ten commandments for the happy writer
- The solution to every writing problem that has ever existed
