Mental & Physical Breaks

I took a break. Did you notice? It’s been a long time since I wrote anything, for here or on my novel. Even my facebook posts have been in drips and drabs.

I wish there was some epiphany behind the breaks, or some desire to “get away from it all.” Maybe there were reasons of sorts, but they never formed into a spoken desire. It was more of a “not today” type of rejection.

Am I rested? Probably. Are my creative juices rejuvenated? More than likely. I guess there’s been a part of me wanting to wait until the writing bug grew too large to ignore; there’s some signs of that happening like dreams of being with my characters who’re all pissy at me. But it’s far too likely that my hesitancy comes from a sense that my second book’s all wrong.

It’s probably not. I just have to reread the 15 chapters I wrote to make sure I’m headed in a good direction. But I’ve been saying that I’m going to re-read them for two months now. Hopefully, I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

About Sharon Cho

As a child, I was sickly and so spent countless hours in bed with only my imagination to accompany me. 50 years later, my imagination demanded that I write things down and offer it to folks and so here I am, sharing my stories. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Hey Sharon. I noticed your break and wondered. I’m glad you’re back and hope you’re feeling better. Pissy characters in dreams? Oh my, definitely not ideal. 😀

    I hope that it doesn’t sound cheesy or annoying when I say that if what you have has taken the wrong direction then I know that you can either fix it or rewrite it. I have faith in you, you can do it. It’s just words, you are creating them and it’s you who matters, not the words.

    If you need a beta reader or an opinion or anything, I’m more than happy to help in any way I can.

    • Hey Aura! Thanks for not giving up on me. Yeah, I know I can fixit… It’s just getting myself to sit down and do the work. Pissy characters in dreams aren’t fun, esp. when they’re glowering with a sword in their hands…. Cela!

      Strangely, I believe that when I sit down to write, whenever *that* is, it’ll be the right time. So that helps me not to persecute myself when I’m not writing. Still, with the four women invading dreams, it’s close to writing again.

      As for being a beta reader, thanks! I’ll take you up on it when I’m ready. If you need beta readers, please let me know. I promise to be more helpful than “That was good!” lol
