Putting Work Aside And Coming Back To It

Filed under: Uncategorized — register1 @ 8:58 pm

Putting work aside and coming back to it is tempting when I want to get so many words down on paper. It is tempting to continue writing even when all the information I wrote down seems to slow down after a while in a day that I write. For me, my mind is like drinking water; so drenched with chapters of stories to write, but like a glass of water reaching to its last drop from a glass, so is my mind getting tired. I then realize that my notebook has to be put aside for a while. At that moment, I have to make a tough decision whether to keep going or wait hours later to continue again. I never want to stop writing at that moment, but what makes me become rational is when I believe another tough decision has to be made. Yet, this decision is not as tough as the first. It is the decision to either continue writing, knowing that it may not come out the way I want it to when reviewing it later, or leaving it for a while. Yet, 9 out of 10 times, when I take a break and feel restful, my words and overall work is like a great recipe. I also felt it was important for me toput down my notebook and pen and take a day off each week. This gives my mind and body way more energy than I can imagine. Putting work aside and taking a break not shows how affective my writing is when I start my first sentence or do a revision. I believe it is noticed by editors after submission process. I don’t think too much about errors after sending my work in.
