Meta Monday: Lost Weekend

MetaMondays5I had four days off this past weekend. Four days!  And no particular responsibilities. That should equal lots of writing, right? Nope. I think I wrote a grand total of about 400 words–and that’s counting this post.

So what happened? Not sure. I spent a little time doing some housework, a little time reading and the rest of the time playing Skyrim. (My first run-through as a Khajiit! Loving it so far.)

And, weirdly, I regret nothing. I’m not berating myself or crying over lost words. I’m at peace with my  lack of progress. Does that mean I’m getting more zen, or just more comfortable in my laziness?

Either way, I think I’m okay with it. My brain translated “vacation from work” to mean “vacation from writing” too. So I guess it needed the break.

How often do you take time off from your writing (or the art form of your choice)? If your art is your day job, do you schedule vacations? If it’s not, do you try to dedicate some of your vacation time to it? How does that work out for you? Let me know in the comments.

  1. If I had back all the time I’ve put into video games, I would have written twenty novels by now. Looks like I might scrape out one or two by the time I’m dead or blind, whichever comes first.

  2. I played outside all weekend! Where I live, we usually have 6 months of winter. Then we got a 60 degree weekend in February! Normally don’t see temperatures like that until May.

    I had a three-day weekend, and I didn’t get much writing done either :/ I’ve been stressed lately, so it happens. We all need a break sometimes.

    Certainly – do not feel guilty! You needed Skyrim!

    Wow – playing a game that isn’t of the FF multi-verse? Amazing…
