Taking Breaks

Written for:  2023 Get Started Right Writing Challenge - Day 6

"For today, read an article on writing; then, comment about something you learned and/or something you'd like to learn about writing, publishing, or anything else in 2023. The article doesn't have to be from this site, but we have quite a lot (with a few possibilities listed below under the categories of Craft of Writing, Business of Writing, and Author Spotlights)."

Under Author Spotlights, I was immediately taken with Roselle Lim:
"On Resting in the Writing Process".  I've always been a bit afraid
of taking time off.  Ms. Lim talks about preventing burnout.  Timeouts 
are necessary for refreshing yourself and your ideas.  In addition,
I related strongly to her mention of vivid memories of her relatives
who have been gone for some time.  I realize that my standout memories
of my own relatives are usually from their later years.  As you age,
loneliness can set in, if you do not have a creative outlet that you can 
share.  Mine is writing.  I am a senior.
