I had all day yesterday to write but did I??? Nope. I wasted the day watching DVD's that I received as gifts then I took a nap.
Did it bother me? Yes, I had a nagging little voice in my head all day telling me to get to work but I haven't had much time to relax since my mother's death. Getting her estate ready for an auction ate up the entire summer so I decided yesterday, nagging voice or not, I wasn't working...AT ALL on anything. Did my house need cleaned? Yes. Did I need to work on my writing? Yes. Do I have quilt/sewing projects Mom started for family memebers to finish? Yes. Do I feel refreshed and ready to tackle all my projects today since I relaxed yesterday? YES!
And that is part of time management, knowing when YOU need a break. I will not have written 30,000 by the end of tomorrow but I have met my deadline with editor for my book. I'll have at least 15,000 words by the end of tomorrow, which means I have a good start on two projects. And a refreshed mind going into the month of September.
What do you do to relax and refresh your creativity?
