We've had a rash of turning in books this week on the Playground. I just finished my extremely extensive revisions for my Feb Blaze - Bring It On. The book is so much better, but I had to turn them around so fast that I'm brain dead. Or so I thought.
My plan was to take it easy this week. I'm waiting on feedback from my wonderful editor on my next proposal (my April Blaze - Rub It In) and it isn't due until the end of Sept. so I have a little down time. I could do laundry but my wonderful husband Zilla has actually been keeping up with it for me lately. I could do the major overhaul my landscaping needs but it's too damn hot out. I could clean my desk off but what fun is that?
Do you know what I've done? Think about my next book. I promised myself I wouldn't write a single word for the rest of the week. I have a feeling I'm going to cave tomorrow. I just can't help it. I've filled my time with mindless games that are quickly losing their appeal in favor of something that uses brainpower. I'm itching to dig into what comes next. I think maybe I need to take a course on relaxation and learning to make the most of my down time.
Do you have trouble relaxing? Is taking time off difficult for you to do? Do you find that even on vacation you set a schedule and fill every moment? Or are you one of the people I wish I could be and enjoy your downtime?
