Hello, everyone. You’re about to discover how demented my definition of taking a break can be… With dogged determination I endeavor to disengage form things that develop stress. Of course I get more, different, worse stress in return.
I decided a distraction of monumental proportions was in order.
No, not that kind of monument, though I’d like to tell some to sti— it’s best if I don’t finish that sentence. Anyway, a monumental distraction is a pretty extreme thing. One of the biggest extremes I know came knocking at my door, or rather my calendar — National Novel Writing Month (also called NaNoWriMo).
I wasn’t going to participate, because (as you know all too well) I have so many drafts awaiting final touches and/or big editing work. Unfortunately those projects are not a distraction. They are work… and a kind of work from which my real job drains my creativity.
