…I just came home from a wonderful few day and a half with my girlfriend, recharging various batteries and just having fun. I’m trying to give myself serious breaks when it comes to not doing work and instead just doing OTHER work as a variety of “vacation.” I do end up doing writing at times when I give myself real breaks now, it’s impossible for me to avoid that.
Having a smartphone with a querty keyboard and Internet access to email chunks of stuff to myself certainly helps writing from away the computer. Still, I do manage to separate myself from work a lot better than how I used to. I feel a lot better about my work when I do this, too.
