I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Write easily and faster

Writing Improves the Knowledge of Writers

I need a break from the daily routine and what better way to do this than to sit and mope. Being with family and friends is a great way to spend the summer holidays..

This is going to be a fun time to relax and in my time alone.

Writing has shown me many ways of feeling good and happy.

  • Why should I really take a break from writing?

I feel tired and need to enjoy life and to mingle with different people. My life needs laughter, happiness, and communication with other people. It is a time to let go and be myself again.

Writing has taught me a lot. To be positive and share what is on my mind freely.

To be able to go for a swim, and enjoy our beautiful beaches and clear waters is such a pleasure.

To be able to live my life all over again is another great time for me. To start over again from a break would make me feel confident and less stressed.

A simple walk can clear my head, in this case I need a few days a week, or more to get my head cleared from many thoughts, I would like to be with my family, and friends and to be myself all over again.

Mentally, the high expectations can be much of a demand and in taking a break I will feel less pressure.

I would like to take it easy on myself and don't want to lose my writing moments.

In learning how to appreciate life is important a time that I look forward to daily but the time-out just means I should see my life in other ways too.

Time to enjoy and be free from a monotonous lifestyle.

My accomplishments have been great for me thus far, and I hope to continue on much better note.

My brain does not want to write constantly, so free time is required to manage each day in a different way.

I need to re-focus, and to rejuvenate to feel good again in writing. Daily writing is a good opportunity. I do feel I am established in writing online. A break is going to do me more than just good and to feel free. A break will make me feel relaxed.

Right now, my focus is the key to my next week or a bit more and that is what I need to survive for my upcoming events.

Without concentration I would feel kind of frustrated and not so pleasant.

I want to be with my loved ones and to be able to take on conversations freely.

It has been rough over the last few weeks and a break would solve many issues for me.

  • When do you think it is time for you to take a break from writing?

  • Do you have a certain limit to what you do before taking that break?

  • Even when you have a day job at times do you not feel like taking a break from it all?

I felt my writing has slowed me down though I did manage to write daily but there has been some doubt along the way.

I have written hubs of one thousand two hundred and fifty words and more, and need to stop thinking that way my break will show me a chance to explore.

To discover new ideas and to make new friends is an experience to remember. The way life changed and in how it made me feel over the years, lots has made me see my life in my own way.

I don't want to start hating to write I need to do what is best for me and only I know what is best for me.

  • Returning to writing will make me see the differences.

Write as much as you want or wish to and when you feel you have done too much get out of your routine, I am not lazy in writing and don't have writer's block, only trying to enjoy my life a little more than I have over the last few months.

In time I will see how good it feels to take breaks and to move on from certain experiences.

You need to write and share experiences only if you feel it is the right choice.

Writing is one of my greatest pass times and I chose to keep on writing. When I feel tired and not into writing anything new in some ways that is telling me to stop.

The few years of writing for Hubpages, has already made like I have achieved a new talent.

My faithful supporters will have me back in a week to share a surprise hub.

Writing skills has improved and still improving in many formats, and mostly I enjoy writing.

I would not be writing if I did not enjoy it. I have come along fine in writing and hope to continue on a different level, with a better opportunity to writing a novel, not sure as yet.

Some people write a lot and suddenly stop writing, and others don't write as much only in spending a certain amount of time writing daily it can still take a toll on you.

No matter how you choose to write, or when you choose to write remember a break is necessary to you.

Don't ignore taking a break from writing that time-out makes you a relaxed and new person.

You can always go back to writing in a healthy manner.

If you continue when you don't feel like writing you can easily lose that interest in writing.

The cycle goes on and on and it is up to you to take charge of your life.

I am taking a break from writing to take care of me and that is very important.

A healthy lifestyle shows in ones face and outdoors can make you feel much better than sitting at that computer on most days.

Fresh air makes a big difference to me and I enjoy outdoors.

Life is not always what you expect to be but if you take the time and see to yourself then you are certainly doing something right for you.

Be sure to enjoy each day and write what you know would make a difference in a reader's life.

Don't be tired of writing make writing a happy moment for you.

  • Be patient and there should not always be a reason to take break just do it.

Only you know when it is time and only you can do that for you.

Writing has surely made my life less-stressed, and less confusing.

When I am troubled by an issue I write about it.

I noticed that each time I wrote about what has troubled me I felt good again.

Reading the comments from the many faithful supporters made me feel ,more positive.

It showed me people care and understand way of writing.

To learn more about the community and to write more shows great appreciation and learning lessons.

What does writing do for you?

Write for enjoyment

When do you think it is time for you to take a break from writing?

      We all need to take a break sometimes Devika. I usually write about four days a week, the other three days spent on other activities to refresh my mind and usually find renewed inspiration and subjects to write about.

      I did actually stop writing altogether for almost 20 years, so that is why I now have this burning desire to make up for lost time. Enjoy your time out , I am sure it will be fun and invigorating for you, and we all look forward to your return.

      We all do need to take a break from writing in the name of balancing our lives. It's okay to take time off and come back to it when you're refreshed and ready. Enjoy your break!

      Never thought of it. Seems like there is too much to do to get enough time to write. Well I will be gone for a week so I won't be writing. So that was easy ;-)

      I can so relate to your words Devika.

      I find myself taking a break every so often especially when we have the grandchildren to stay and then it takes me a few days after to get back to my writing. What has been different for me this time is that I haven't apologised like I usually do for taking time out. I have simply come back with many more photos to combine with my poetry to share with all my wonderful hubfamily.

      Take your time out Devika whenever you want to because you will always be a member of this hubfamily and do not cease to be one of you don't write daily.

      You are a very talented writer and you are so right when you say that you have travelled a long way in the time you have been here with us,.your hubs are all so inspiring.

      I wish you a wonderful week and look forward to you surprise hub. Above all Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

      I love the photos you have posted today they are so beautiful. lots of love from Wales.

      Eddy.

      Devika, I hope you have a great time with your guests and your well earned break. Writing is time consuming and in spring and summer there is so much to do. The weather is warm and welcoming and nature calls, the garden needs it TLC and getting your home in order after the bad weather all take up your time. Enjoy look forward to reading your work after the break.

It's wrong to feel that we have to post articles, especially when we feel like doing something else. Your need for writing will come back. Enjoy!

      Devika, I think it's a very good idea to take time out for your self, writing is great, but it can be all consuming if you let it. I've drastically cut back on the amount of writing I do here, now that the weather is getting warmer it's time to grab the camera and get out into the fresh air. Looking forward to seeing you back, rejuvenated and refreshed. Take care now.

      Breaks are helpful and when you come back writing you have more vigor and ideas. I remember as a child I liked to write little books. I would then put them in a drawer and read them several days later. This break allowed me to see the book from a different view.

      It's good to take a break from time to time. Although I need to write for income, I also do offline work. When I get too tired to write for Hub Pages, and need a break, I switch gears and focus somewhere else. I also hope you are refreshed when you start up again.
