Too Much

There is a line you have to be careful not to cross once you move past writer’s block and get going again. It is the line of doing too much.

Once you realize that you can do this, that it is not hard, that it is actually freeing, you begin to take on more. It is a good place to be but a dangerous one as well.

You have waited so long, you now value the lost time and are trying to reclaim it. Now you risk bogging down again but this time you are at the opposite end, overwhelmed by projects.

Overwork can be as bad as no work. Take a step back and relax. Embrace the time and relationships you have reclaimed. Doing the work is about enjoying it at a regular sustainable pace.

Good writing.
