Traci commented: "Okay, I just have to ask this. Do most of you write on Sundays, or do you take the day off?"
Personally, I think Traci's clairvoyant because I was just getting ready to post a blog to this very effect this very evening. So here it goes.
I don't write on Sundays. I have a couple of reasons for this, the first being religious. I pray a lot over my writing and I feel that if I want to ask God for His help in my endeavors, I should do what He asks me to do, which is to keep the Sabbath day holy. I know other authors who feel differently, but for myself, this is what I feel the most comfortable doing.
Secondly, just like our bodies need to lie down and rest every so often, so does our brain. We can hit life hard and heavy for six days out of the week, but if we don't slow down and give ourselves a recharge, we're cruisin' for a breakdown. Sunday is my day to refuel spiritually and physically. I go to church, come home and take a long nap. By the time Monday morning rolls around, I'm rarin' to go again.
I do take an occasional note on a Sunday. If I have a really good idea (which I frequently do, because after the recharge, I'm ready to go) on a Sunday, I'll jot down the basics of it and then I leave it at that. I also do visit my favorite inspirational blog sites.
So that's how I handle writing on Sundays.
With that, please continue to leave your word counts over the weekend, and join me here Monday morning as we kick off week #2. Wow, already??
