Or any holiday really. But yesterday was Easter, and I was able to spend some time with family and simply relaxing for a change. Anyone who knows an author knows we have a tendency to become workaholics. So holidays are good for me.
But its a wonderful reminder that, as much as I enjoy creating stories for others, those stories will never happen if I don’t ever LIVE. So its important that authors step away from the work every once in a while and have some fun, meet some people, do something new! Refill the Well, I call it.
Readers are the same way. Before I was an author, I was a voracious reader! That’s what started me on this path. But I often felt guilty about whiling away the hours with a good book when there was so much that needed to be done. But readers have a well too! It needs refilling, and what better vacation than a few hours in a book, right?
So today, let’s talk relaxation. What’s your favorite way to slow down and refill your well?
