This week has been crazy with NaNoWriMo. I had hoped to get to the 25k mark by tonight, but I’m just over 20k, which I am pretty proud of. My brain is slightly becoming numb so I thought that since I am ahead of things, today would be a good day to take a break and recharge. I decided that my new goal for the half way mark will be Tuesday evening. I am pretty confident that I can do it, since I’m not that far off.
In the meantime, my overworked brain is thanking me for the day off. I started the morning off by going for a walk and getting an iced coffee. And then once I was back home, I indulged in things I haven’t done all week. I caught up on my fave websites, played a video game, and then decided to make some happy mail.
So far this morning I have made two envelopes, using an old calender, some stickers and washi tape. The one on the left will be traveling to The Netherlands once i get the time to sit and write her. The one on the right is a surprise for a friend in the USA. I love being crafty and creative and I am jealous when I see other people create art. There are many talented people out there, no matter if it is writing or scrapbooking, and I often wish I had their talent. But I don’t let that stop me from doing the things I love. I’m having fun, so that’s the main thing. And once in awhile I create a piece of gold I’m beyond happy with.
I’m going to step away from the computer for awhile, do coffee with friends before I watch this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. And if I can manage it, I plan on putting my nose in a good book for a little while.
So, what do you do when you take writing breaks? How do you recharge during Nano?
