(It’s not you, it’s me…) Taking a Break

June 14, 2010

Sometimes I argue with my writing—and it argues back.

When this happens, I know it’s time to take a break.

A relationship is meant to be fluid. Sometimes you can’t get enough of each other, you cling to each other like a vine to a trellis (oh my darling, never, ever leave me!). Other times, you are too easily irritated by each other (Writer: You’ve too many adverbs. Writing: And you’re breathing down my neck!)

Sometimes you just need space. Go water the garden. Let the computer/notebook bask in silence for awhile. Then come back and see each other with refreshed eyes. Maybe that will help you hold hands again.

Sometimes you just need a break.
