Life Should be Touched, Not Strangled
Life should be touched, not strangled. You've got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others, move forward with it ~ Ray Bradbury
I have to admit, I'm a bit out of practice making sure I get all my writing and editing goals completed each week. I now have a critique group to go to on Wednesdays and this week we had a hair cut appointment. So, I am short about 1800 words in my third novel and 16 pages of editing Disappear With Me.
But like the quote says, sometimes I have to relax and let that happen. Next, I will refine my daily goals so that I take into account time constraints on Wednesdays and any other day I have commitments in the morning that will take away from writing and editing. And even though I had Friday morning to catch up, I really just needed Friday to relax knowing that the weekend is coming.
Although sometimes I have to push myself to move forward, there are times I have to allow myself a break just to regroup and move forward. This has been one of those weeks.
When was the last time you gave yourself a break from your dream journey?
