I can’t believe how much stuff I’ve gotten done in two days. I’ve gotten roughly one-fourth of the way through the editor's notes on my second book. I’ve made a timeline for the first book so I know where I can expand. I’ve sent the first book off to beta readers (obviously before I decided I was going to expand the book). And I’ve read the feedback I’ve gotten from another beta reader. (Yes, they had it back to me in less than 24 hours).
I think I’m on to something with this taking a break thing. Maybe not a two-month break, but limiting how much I do so I don’t burn out so quickly. It’ll be a good thing.
