NaNoWriMo Is Over… But Is It Time To Relax? | Writer’s Relief

With National Novel Writing Month coming to a close, you might be thinking about how you’ll relax. But Writer’s Relief asks: Can you? According to Writing and Wellness, writers can find it’s especially hard to chill out:

“’You need to relax,” my friends tell me.  ‘You work too hard.’

I know it’s true. My body gives me clues. Back pain. Eye twitching. Headaches. Stomach upset. Fatigue. It’s obvious when I need to take a step back and just relax.

I schedule the time, and if it’s only an hour or two, I can do it easily. The movie theater saves me on many occasions.

Longer than that? Ugh. I get restless. I start picking up the phone and the computer. Longer than a few hours without being productive? I start to feel guilty.”

Learn more about this writer’s thoughts on why writers find it hard to relax.
