... and why!
What do you think about authors taking a break after completing a draft before moving to the next step for that project? Should they do it or not? Why or why not?
Or maybe you take a break after a chapter or two. Or after a certain number of pages or words.

I made a commitment to myself for completion of this draft. Then I thought maybe I would complete it earlier due to vacation. Which didn't happen and I'm working with that being okay, because I was on vacation. And it's okay to have non-productive times (at least that's what I've been told *smile*).
Now I'm looking at my deadline coming on fast and I wonder how I will ever make it.
I'm not sure how, but I will try. I want this draft done before November because I want to work on something else in November (NaNoWriMo).
I've made significant progress in the past several month - but I have much to do. Sometimes I'm excited by the prospect of everything I have to do and sometimes I feel so overwhelmed that I think I should just give up..
Don't tell me I need to consider that option; I really don't want it except in the moments where I wonder how I will ever get ahead and get it published.
