And I didn't write. I didn't read a romance. I read a YA. :) I didn't look at email, except for a class I was teaching. I turned everything off, tuned out, vegged.
So I also didn't write a blog.
But the interesting thing was, yesterday as we were driving to my son's house (2 hours away) I got a spark of an idea. I quickly grabbed a notebook (all writers have notebooks in their cars, right?) and started scribbling.
By the time I was done I had 2 3-book series ideas.
That's the power of time off!
So...the next time you're truly burned out, consider unplugging for a few days or even a week. I was amazed at how good those new ideas were.
And meet me here next week when I swear I'll have a proper blog.
