Oops, I missed my day to post. It was yesterday, Labor Day. I guess I took it too literally, taking a day off from my labors.
And, in fact, that's what I did. It's a rare day that I don't write anything (except what is mentioned below), but I had done a push for the weekend to polish up my book that will be published late this month, early next month (at the very latest--I sure hope!)
What do writers do on a day off? I will admit I reviewed a book for Suspense Magazine. I also emailed back and forth with my cover designer, who was working hard that day. But mostly I read and worked around the house.
I really can't imagine a day without writing a single dang thing, even if it's my daily journal. I've done it, but not for a long, long time.
Are there writers who take days off?
