It does occur to me that this is really bad timing, right in the middle of NaNoWriMo.

Every once in a while I have to recharge.  Even when I was working for someone else and writing maybe an hour or so a day I had to stop writing periodically and spend some time reading, watching movies, whatever.

If I don’t recharge my writing slows down, gets undirected and distracted.  I can tell the difference between pieces written in the usual way and things written when I should have been recharging and was trying to ignore it.

Someday maybe I’ll be able to write normally during that phase, but right now…

  1. I like your idea of recharging. Sometimes I try to force the writing and it doesn't come out right. Maybe that's when I need to recharge too. I had a month like that last month and took a lot of breaks from writing, but now I feel fully recharged and ready to go.
