Where I am in the writing process: Getting back to it. I'm trying to ignore what I've written thus far so I can finish the rewrite before NaNoWriMo in November.
My current problem(s): Just getting back in the swing of things. And not going back to make sure what I'm writing is inline with everything already written. I was taking a slower approach with the rewrite, but honestly, it is almost an entirely new draft, so I'm trying to take that mindset and not let editing get in my way.
Sarah's ???: How long do your breaks from writing last?
My answer: Usually several weeks. I wrote all through last November and half of December, took a break for about three months, then started up and didn't stop until a couple months ago because life was getting hectic the nearer my wedding got. But even during my fiction breaks, I still write, turning to personal essays, poetry, free-writing, whatever. I try to never stop-stop writing. But sometimes you just need a break from writing fiction because there is so much planning and and intentional thought involved.
My ???: Do you plan breaks from writing or do you just write when you feel like and not when you don't?
That's it for this time!
