Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull BoyI’ve been working 12-16 hour days, 7 days a week. I finally took an afternoon off a few days ago. I simply needed to recharge. It made me think of this old proverb because (as my family can attest) I’ve been a dull girl.

Actually, I don’t think dull is a strong enough word. But I’m writing this in the wee hours of the morning (of late night?) and it’s the best I’ve got at the moment.

The point of this, as inspiring as it’s not, is to remind you not to be an “all work and no play” kind of person. It will burn you out. Not only will your creativity suffer; so will your relationships. Sometimes I think I need to look at pictures of my family to remember what they look like!

Wishing you productivity and balance this coming week.

  1. Staci, you have been busy!! 😀 What a fantastic list of sites you’ve visited…you must be exhausted. I’m glad you took some time out to recharge – you never mentioned what you did?! The outdoors works wonders for me!

    Yesterday I just stopped…my brain and body refused to do any more computer /writing for a day and I happily spring-cleaned the kitchen and in the evening we watched a film (Paper Towns). Feel much more rejuvenated and ready to start up again today. Wishing you a happy Weekend, my friend! 😀🌺

    • I’m a writer and editor, Annika. I’m at a weird place right now where I have a lot of deadlines but only so much time. I really needed those hours, but I needed rest more. I’m getting back to the groove, now.

      And if you’d like to come spring clean my kitchen, you’ve got an open invitation!
