✨ Draft ≥30k words for The Last Watch # 2
Keeping it simple again this month since my drafting routine pretty much maxes me out. I burnt out pretty hard about a week ago, -almost- caught it in time, but not quite. I’m slowly figuring out what my early warning signs are and I’m hoping next time I can be aware enough to slow down earlier so I don’t crash quite so hard. 🙇♀️ I missed less than two days of drafting though, and luckily they were weekend days so I had lots of time to just chill out and recuperate. 😎💤
Not gonna lie, it was hard to convince myself to not do any writing for almost two whole days. I felt pretty guilty ~75% of that time. But I forced myself to play some Halo, watch some Netflix, do some iPad puzzles (which is a thing apparently? 🧩) and let myself do only a -little- bit of book launch marketing planning.
I bounced back with a vengeance on Monday morning, my brain woke me up promptly at 4:20 AM having crafted the first line for the next chapter. Thanks, brain! 🥰 🧠
Moral of all this: take breaks when you need them, try not to feel guilty about it, and your well-rested brain might just reward you!
