Lately I just haven't been in the mood to write. It's not that I don't have the time. Basketball season is over, and my evenings aren't quite as filled as they've been the past few months, but I just don't have the interest right now to sit down at my keyboard and pound out a story. I have several ideas floating around, and a few manuscripts that I've started, but it's just a lack of motivation, or more specificly, lack of interest to do any work on them.
Tuesday we had a snow day. A bonus day off of school! Always a nice surprise. When we got back yesterday, one of the other teachers asked me, "So, did you spend your day off reading a book or writing one?" Normally I'd take total advantage and spend the day on my laptop. But this time I didn't. I didn't open a book to read either. I spend the whole day watching making-of extras and a movie. It was great.
So, rather than be stressed and worry about not getting anything done writing-wise, I'm simply giving myself permission to take a little break. A small vacation if you will.
I'm sure the mood will strike me and I'll get back to it soon.
Until next time,
