A Break Can Be Just What the Doctor Ordered

We were in the Lake District, staying in Windermere, and it was peaceful and lovely and we went all over the place to just as lovely villages, beauty spots and towns as well. If you've never been to the area, let me just say, the scenery is spectacular - wide valleys with huge crags on either side, twisty roads, woods, ancient ruins - it's got the lot. Driving through it all was great for the creative juices.

It was on the drive home that I really began thinking about writing again though. It took us 8.5hrs to get back thanks to someone tanking it on the M1 and I let my creative drive go wild.
I haven't felt this excited about writing in longer than I care to admit.
So, if we're facing burnout, just remember, sometimes a break can be just what we need. Even creative types need a rest sometimes!
Hope you are all well. Best wishes to you all.
