“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing. “
I tend to disagree with quotes that I post here more often than I endorse them. But today’s offering is one that I agree with completely.
Even though I am not a professional writer, not thinking about writing seems a bit like turning off my brain. All the writing that I do on this little blog of mine has its basis in my thoughts; all of them.
In addition to my blog, I have a little WIP in the form of a novel. I have only managed three chapters in almost two years, but there is always hope. Whenever I have trouble falling asleep (which is rare) I think about my novel.
I don’t need a vacation from writing, or thinking about writing, since it is something I enjoy doing. If writing were my day job, I might feel differently.
What do you think? I would love to know.
