Sunday Savior & the Indie Author

As an indie author, you run 365/7/24 (365 days,7 days a week, 24 hours a day). Between writing, working, editing, and promoting. We rarely take a day off even when sick. We don't allow ourselves the time. We are a crazy, driven bunch of individuals.

But here's a tip. A BIG ONE!
Allow yourself down time. Take one day a week just to relax and stop.
Whether it's like my friend to the right and sleeping in late.
Or watching a movie and cuddling with the someone you love,
Or reading a book by ANOTHER author.

Or playing a board game with friends and family. Turn the computer off and interact with REAL people for a change.

Give yourself some downtime.Your creative juices will appreciate it. Head off writer's block BEFORE IT HAPPENS.

That's all I'm going to say about that. Now, I'm going to practice what I preach (literally). As always...

Keep writing and loving the Lord.
