Take a breath

My writers group met last night, not to talk about our writing, not to throw around ideas, not to critique first drafts or short stories. We met to have dinner, take a breath, relax and just enjoy each other's company.

In anything you do, you need breaks.

I think with writing, because usually it's a solitary thing, taking a break means going out and enjoying time with friends. See a movie, try a new restaurant. Have coffee. Laugh a lot.

Give yourself that much needed mental break, even when your fingers are itching to get on that keyboard.

What do you do to take a break from writing?

Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
