As a writer, no matter if you are your own boss, or if you write for a client there are somethings that are very import. The very first thing that is important is that you take some time for yourself and rest a day. In this blog, I am going to go over the reason that you need to have a day of rest when you are writing.
Reduce the Chances of Getting Writers Block
By taking a day of rest you not only take a day to rest your mind and focus on other things that need your attention. Taking just one day to do something else besides writing not only clears your mind to think about other than writing. For instance, maybe going for a walk in the park, or go swimming with friends and family. By taking the time with friends and family it will help reduce the chances of getting writers block for when you go back to writing again the next day.
Reducing the Chances of Getting Burnt Out
You may not think being a new writer that you will get burnt out on writing. But I am here to tell you that as a seasoned writer, you will have those moments where you feel like you are getting burnt out. That is when the day of rest is a good thing because it gives you time to recoup and get your thoughts together. This is also a good time to think about talking with another writer to bounce some ideas off of each other
Reduce The Chance to Quit Writing
Being a new writer you will find there are times in your career when you first start out that are going to be brutal and you are going to think about quitting, every new writer does at some point. However; this is when it is most important to remind yourself why you became a freelance writer. What your motivation is and why it is worth being your own boss.
As long as you keep these 3 reasons in taking a day of rest in mind your career as a writer will literally be unstoppable and you will not have a problem with your writing career or coming up with new content when needed for your clients or your personal work.
