Is it Ever OK to Stop Writing?

Dare I even ask?  Suspense writer Brandilyn Collins says, "yes". Her article for unpublished authors is liberating, and I suspect that published authors will even find it refreshing.

Five Reasons Why the Unpublished Can Stop Writing


  1. Very refreshing. I've taken breaks from writing before and I always come back with more ideas and feeling more intune with the whole writing process. It feels good to know that it's ok to say no once in a while - for your sanity :)

    Happy Tuesday,

  2. Breaks kept us sane and creative.

  3. Thanks for the good link! It is nice to hear that we can take a break every once in awhile.

  4. I love readding, and thanks for your artical.........................................

  5. Hi Carla -

    I took a break after I finished my last manuscript. Writers who churn out three and four books a year astound me.

    Susan :)

  6. I read an interview with a widely published children's author who advocates taking a break from writing -- but the way she does that is by writing several genres at once. When she hits a wall with one manuscript she starts on another! She usually has three or four on the go and publishes about that many a year. I'd like to be able to take that kind of break! LOL.
