Overworking is easy for a writer. Writers are constantly thinking of poetic lines and/or story developments. After a while, our stories get mixed up and everything written comes out forced. But is it even possible for a writer to take a break?
We can psychically stop writing. We can pause and stop ourselves from analyzing a story. But that’s about it. It’s more of a half break than anything because we still think about stories.
But we can drain ourselves. That half break is almost as essential as writing when it comes to these moments. No matter how hard we try, we can’t keep writing 24/7. Even if those half breaks take days or weeks or months, we need some type of break to continue writing strong.
