NaNoWriMo: Coffee break!

amwriting 1

I’ve been writing and although I haven’t hit the 10,000th word mark as yet, I’ll be getting there this weekend. I haven’t been updating the blog and I do apologize, but when I’m in the zone, I’m on a roll. Seeing that I now have 5,444 words, I think it’s time for a coffee break.

When I have writerโ€™s block or simply need a breather from writing โ€“ I really donโ€™t like sitting in front of my laptop for hours on end sometimes โ€“ I do this:

^ Listen to music to picture the next scene in my head.

^ Play Unblock Me. Iโ€™m on Puzzle 40 as a beginner. I havenโ€™t played in years and I find it extremely relaxing!

^ Pick up little French. Iโ€™m going to need it when I start writing the football fiction I was recently gushing about. Vous me comprenez?

^ Cook. I’m not the best cook in the world and I’m always going to be in love with mom’s cooking, but I’ve been dishing things up in the kitchen recently.

^ Read. I’m currently readingย Finding Opa!ย and I can’t wait to get it done and over with.

^ Catch up withย Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters! I am not ashamed to say that I still remain a fan after all these years and seeing that a new movie will be out next year be it the good Lord’s willing, now is the time for me to binge the entire series.

And it helps because Iโ€™m all motivated all over again. Another thing that I find extremely helpful is putting on my favorite TV shows for background noise. Sometimes I pick up little things from them and it help with my flow.

What do you do when you take a little break from writing?
