As I mentioned earlier, I finished the first draft of Guarded Beginnings. I’m feeling a bit relieved but also a little sad. I really like Denise and came to like Davik and Camin. I might just take a day or so off from everything before I get into the rewrites for this, recharge a little. I’ve been a little amazed at how great I’ve been doing, how much I’ve been producing, but I’ll admit that some of the stuff has been majoryly forced and just blah.
If you haven’t seen it, there’s a great post on the need to recharge over at the 70 days blog. When I need to recharge, I usually first reread one of my favorite jokes/stories, The Angry Squirrel. I got that joke in the email and saved it, because it was just so funny. Then I’ll relax, now in a much better mood, read a book, play videogames, or watch tv. What do you do when you need to recharge?
