So, here are my thoughts while taking a break.
First, a little background. I took a two weeks long break from publishing, but I didn’t stop writing. I wrote every day, just like I’ve been doing since August.
But when I took this break, few things happened. First, my brain constantly demanded that I publish something. Even if I took a day off from writing, (I believe nothing is wrong with that,) it demanded that I write something.
Apart from that, this has been going on since I have began writing. Each moment I observe, each thing I experience. I constantly evaluate it in the back of my head, to see how I can spin it off into a blog post.
I often heard how people say that you work differently when you’ve got personal interest, as opposed to working for someone else. Never have I experienced that feeling so clearly. I don’t think I would have thought about writing so much, if I were to be working for someone else.
It also doesn’t help that I’m a workaholic, ever since my school days. If a subject interested me, I’ll study it day and night, and make careful notes. But if it didn’t interest me, I’ll just do the bare minimum.
Overall, I believe that the break from publishing, (Not from writing,) did me good.
But I’m not going through that again, for at least next six or so months, if I can help it.
