I just finished seven weeks of devotional writing. Today, I'll jump into Noah and Maddison's world full-time. Don't get me wrong; I love these characters. If I wasn't a writer, the amount of time and attention these two imaginary friends receive would qualify me for some serious therapy. And, please, don't even get me started on Daniel.
Given my deep devotion to these characters, one might assume I can write and edit non-stop. Alas, this is not the case. At some point in the process, my brain muddies. My thoughts scramble. My eyes cross, and I have to step away.
Since napping is a "no-no" for those with CFS, I've found another way to let my brain rest. My solution? Delightfully mindless TV.
This is not to say that I don't enjoy well-produced television. White Collar returns July 10th at 9 p.m., and you can bet I have a date with my couch on that night!
Sometimes, however, you just need to turn off your brain. When I have that urge, I turn to a special host of shows that fit the bill. What Not To Wear, Food Network Star, and Good Luck Charlie are at the top of my list. I like to alternate between food/style reality shows and the Disney Channel. Don't blink. You read that sentence correctly. I admitted it. I am an adult Disney Channel viewer. :)
After an hour, I'm usually re-energized and ready to jump back into whatever project requires all of my attention. What about you? What do you turn to when your brain feels like it might explode?
