Note 223 – Don’t feel guilty about not writing

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!
