Sit Ups

I haven't been doing much writing the last couple months. Not for my novel, not for this blog. I don't, right now, miss it as much as I wish I did. I've been too busy to miss it, my mind too full of other things. But I think that even if I'm not particularly craving it, I need to do it. It's much like exercising, in a way. I never want to exercise. I do it simply because my brain needs me to do it. My brain also needs me to write. When I don't do one of these things, I can feel the heaviness of its void pushing down on my shoulders like lead.

Well, this was a pretty nice little bit of writing right here.

Hope the writers block clears soon. Maybe it's your brain's way of taking a break for a bit, as with exercise that you mentioned, sometimes you just need to take a step back and relax so you pull a muscle!

Muscles grow after they've been torn. Excercise tears muscle a little bit, which is why it's best to tone muscles only every OTHER day.I'd say this time of year your brain can only take so much. Give it a rest. It's good for the soul to breathe.
