So maybe some of you are asking yourselves, “Self, this Matthew fellow said he would be taking a break from writing for a short time, and yet he has produced several posts in the last few days. What gives?” Well, it’s pretty simple. When I do my chapters, I put a lot of work and thought into them. I labor over them and anguish over them so that they are good and worth posting. I spend a lot of time on making sure they are worthy of my standards. I have to worry about there context in the story. I have to make sure that it is well written. I have to carefully decide what I want to convey. With my mini-sodes, though, and my other random content, I’m flying by the seat of my pants. I’m putting in minimal effort, doing very little editing, if any at all, and not worrying about all the finer details. So, basically, I’m not trying to live up to my authorial duties and am essentially projectile vomiting what’s in my head onto paper and having no more concern for it beyond that. So not work. Not writing in any sense that you would think of it. Taking a break from serious work to do not so serious stuff.
