Writing 101 – Assignment Day 11- How Do You Recharge Your Batteries So You Can Write – Monday, September 21, 2015

Day 11 :

Our Assignment:
“As much as we love to write, it’s important to take breaks — to live your life and have new experiences, and to reflect and recharge so you can come back to your desk, ready t0hit the keyboard again. Not writing allows you to gain the distance from your words, and thus perspective, which are both needed when it’s time to edit.
Being active every day makes it easier to hear that inner voice.

— Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

Write every day, but don’t put your life on hold . . .

— Vincent Mars, “Writing as a Way of Life

What do you do when you’re not writing? How do you reset and return to this dashboard, refreshed? What do you need in your day-to-day life to maintain balance: Running? Yoga? Gardening? Painting? Cooking?

Today, publish your post in any form you wish, as long as you focus on one or all of these questions.”

I changed the title a bit.

I also just posted this before I was even close to being ready.

How Do I Recharge My Batteries
(Not Just For Writing )

I need a breath of fresh air and isn’t this post about taking a breather. Refreshing ourselves. Recharging our bodies?

I take deep Breaths all Day long.
Breathing in and out.

This is Why Cold Showers Rock 4

When I am stuck inside like I have been for so many months I often go and take a cold /cool shower to refresh me. I get hot easily. Sweaty.
This wakes me up and restores me.

When I can’t get outside I walk around the house.

I bring the rabbit in so we all can play.

I read a book. A real book. Not off the computer.

I read a book when I need a break from Writing.

I turn some music on.
Turn Your Radio

Turn Your Radio On

I seldom turn my radio on anymore. I like choosing what I listen to.
I have playlists on Youtube and elsewhere.
I Listen to music.


I watch old movies.

But when I am feeling good and it is cool outside :
I OPEN EVERY WINDOW IN THE HOUSE


I GO FOR LONG WALKS

SAMSUNGTo the Right Is Bobby’s Cove although you  get to it going leff.

Left takes you all over Rolling Meadows Ranch
Left will also take you all the way to Allen David Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park and Fire Tower Road Outside Haines City. (It is a beautiful drive passing the old sod fields and Catfish Creek- thru marshes and places with funny sounding names – up and down sandy HILLS .
Left takes you to the old bridge that you don’t dare drive over now.
Left takes you to the old shop and old barn.  And oh so many other places.
