Should you feel guilty about taking a break?

Is it called ‘just being lazy’? Did I just crap-out for the day?

I started off today with the intention that I would get some serious writing done, since it’s my first day off in like, a week. So why not take advantage of that time, eh? I did actually finish Chapter 10, so thats exciting. And then I kind of…never went back to it.

I played some GW2, played some Minecraft, and then sort of dilly-dallied. I missed my games! Maybe it’s a good thing to give the old noggin’ a break once in a while. Plus, you know, Saints Row 3 is fun too.

On the other hand, I’m afraid ‘a break’ will somehow lead to ‘totally slacking off quittersville’ but I think thats the old me. The new, writerly me is excited to dive back into some chapters. So, all in all, I think the only real damage is that I didn’t spend that time writting chapter 11.

Incase you couldn’t tell, this is more one of those ‘talking to myself about something’ kind of blog entries, although ya’ll are more than welcome to chime in.

Lazy, gaming comfort vs super productive, maybe bad-ish writing…. hmm.

  1. I’m apparently ‘spent’ after NaNo, and a good friend told me not to feel guilty about rolling along in neutral.

  2. No, you shouldn’t feel guilty for taking a break, but as a writer you have to be really strict with your own time and you need to kick your own butt if that break becomes much longer than you hoped for.
