Maybe you're busier. Maybe you're in between drafts and you don't feel like being absorbed in something else. Maybe you're tired. Does anyone take breaks from writing? I'm talking about not writing, period. Use that time instead for extra reading. Just like with anything else, I think extended breaks are bad and impede progress but I'm hoping a small break, maybe between 1 and 3 weeks can sometimes be good? What do others think, based on their own experiences? This is more of a question to those here who write consistently.
