Take a Break: A Note of Encouragement

‘ello. If you participated in National Novel Writing Month (Nano, or Nanowrimo) you are probably exhausted.

Even if you didn’t I’m sure you have been working hard. I want say just one thing to you all:

It is okay to take a break.

Especially around the holidays it can be hard to fit in your writing time. You might find a stolen hour here or there to write or edit, but they are few and far between. But remember:

It is okay to take a break.

The words you write come from your mind, and if your mind is not healthy, you cannot write. So taking a break will help you write better. Just make sure it is not too long of a break.
