I heavily revised one chapter and edited two others yesterday. Then my back started hurting from sitting too long. I got a little headache from staring at my laptop screen, so stretched out on my bed for just a few minutes. I closed my eyes, and the day was gone. I slept until the evening and woke up with a mild headache.
This morning I'm ready to make up for what I didn't do yesterday (including the laundry I was going to tackle between chapters). Part of me wants to slack off and relax. The other part of me desperately needs a sense of completion. So I will write now and slack off later.
Maybe a reward in the middle would be good - like a change of venue and a pumpkin spice latte or a quick walk to the lake.
As a mother of three with a preschooler at home most of the time, I have no real choice but to make the weekends my work days for writing. Which do you choose for this weekend: Relaxation or work?
