Seasonal Creation

1adfc2_be51051e2ec544f0b195953a6f9b39d5-mv2_d_1250_1250_s_2After my quarter-life crisis took off last Sunday, I decided to do a little retail therapy, in the form of shopping at Barnes and Noble, where I picked up the latest issue of Writer’s Digest among other things, and there was a particular article that struck me as an interesting concept.

The idea was simple enough, creating in seasons, rather than simply writing all the time, non-stop into eternity. What a novel thought, actually taking a break to give oneself the opportunity to read and replenish their creative juices? For as long as I have been writing, I have never been able to manage such a task for more than a few minutes.

Not writing is surprisingly difficult at times, but after the work I’ve put my current work-in-progress as of late, I think I would enjoy something akin to a mini-vacation from writing. I’m not entirely sure what that would look like for me exactly, probably reading a lot, still doing blog posts, and essays, and shorts, but not jumping straight into the next novel, though I can’t picture any of it lasting for particularly long. Still I’d like to see what that looks like.
