I accidentally took a week off from blogging. It was a pretty great way to start my summer. We did a lot of adventuring: bike rides, park trips, swimming at the pool. I stayed up late watching TV (something I never do), read books, and started working on my summer tan.
It was a week of recovery and refocus.
We all need those every once in a while and I hope you take breaks when you can (accidental or completely planned).
I never want this space to feel like work. To feel like I have to do something or must write. I’m working on understanding that I don’t have to post something every day. That silence is okay. That my words will mean more when I don’t force something that isn’t that great.
I know there’s power in writing every day, it stretches us as writers. But I think sometimes no words work too. So I’m trying to figure out that balance.
I also know that if I wait too long, I won’t come back. And I don’t want that.
So here’s to a summer of intentional writing. And occasional silence.
