Should you feel guilty about not writing if you don’t feel well? The answer is no; however, my challenge is ‘to learn something new about writing every day for a year and blog about it to share with others, every day for a year’, so here I am.
I was laying in a quiet, dark room just now, trying to think of a writing tip to give you and gathering up enough energy to turn the computer on – and then it hit me. Here’s what I told myself…
“You mustn’t feel guilty if you don’t write, even if you have set yourself a writing challenge. Your readers will hopefully understand and still come back tomorrow. Chances are that by keeping your brain inactive for a day, will recharge it enough for you to write twice as much tomorrow (if not more). Just remember to look after yourself”.
I definitely learnt something today. Here’s to a longer and more informative blog post tomorrow!
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with Natalie Whipple’s blog post on this subject:
