Just like everyone else, writers need breaks.
I recently felt overwhelmed and realized I had nothing out. And by nothing, I mean
I decided to step away from my novel group for a few months in order to submit, submit, and submit, but also to give my mind a break.
It's month two of my break and I have to say I am really liking it. It's been nice to step out of my novel world and sew cute little dresses for cute little girls.
