Today's challenge comes from Xio Axelrod who wants to know what writers do when they aren't writing.
This one was hard, because I consider writing my full-time job. I never used all my vacation days when I was employed by a company. I definitely don't as my own boss. I try to write every day, and I squeeze household chores and errands in when I can. I usually give myself a pass for writing on the weekends. But don't get me wrong. It isn't nose to the grindstone every day.
Once I've had my fill of that, I lose myself in the kitchen. I'll bake cookies but then have to put a sign on the cookie jar to remind myself they aren't on my diet. Or I'll plan an elaborate dinner because I like to cook and I find it relaxing.
On days when I'm feeling really decadent, I'll lay down on the couch and do a little reading for pleasure. So many books, so little time.
So there you have it. The few days I do let myself goof off and filled with leisurely activity and lots of me time. I'm curious how you spend your days off. Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite way to relax and unwind.
Go ahead and keep hopping to see how Susan Scott Shelly fills her time away from writing. Thanks for dropping by.
