Sometimes it helps to escape.  The last couple of months have been high stress and worry for me. This week, blessedly, came with a light work load.  I’m sad I could not actually participate in NaNoWriMo this year, but it’s a good thing I decided to table it for the year. My stress levels could not handle it.

That said, I love my little WriMo group so I came out tonight to do some other work and get a change of scenery.  If I’m not working [redacted], which isn’t real common anyway, I mostly am holed up in my house trying to get through some projects that should not prove as stressful as they are.

Dislike on the high and un-needed stress, right?

I’m feeling my brain uncramp. I’m starting to feel like my regular and perky self. There’s even some spark of creativity which I was actually afraid someone horrible completely stamped out of my person.  I am glad that I do not need to mourn for this.

Where do you go to relax, get away, or just to experience a change of pace for whatever your work is? 

Here’s my top five in no particular order:

  • Library
  • Starbucks/Panera
  • Writing Group
  • Book Club
  • Sewing Circle
