Some days, you don’t feel like writing or feel overwhelmed by the tasks. Maybe this is a better day not to try to write. A writer’s life brings many seasons and tasks.
Maybe it’s a day to straighten your office, vacuum the house, or read a book you’ve been neglecting. Maybe its time to take a walk. Or a nap.

The good thing about writing is we can still be working on it even when we’re nowhere near a pen or a keyboard. Without life experiences and time to reflect, our writing will be hollow.
All these other, less creative chores still need doing. They’re part of a writer’s life. As you weed your garden, wash dishes, catch up on your correspondence, or reorganize your bookshelves, your subconscious brain will still be working on your work in progress.
And when that season ends, you’ll once again have something to say.
