Tuxedo Jack here responding to our 11th assignment in Writing 101, which ironically is about not writing.
As much as we love to write, it’s important to take breaks — to live your life and have new experiences, and to reflect and recharge so you can come back to your desk, ready to hit the keyboard again. Not writing allows you to gain the distance from your words, and thus perspective, which are both needed when it’s time to edit.

What do we do when we aren’t writing? How do we fill our creative wells? The answer for us is simple… we soak up nature. Cooper the Cattledog plays games outside; Buffy Cat hunts and hides in the grass; and I wander the ranch and sit in the sunlight (outside or in).
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare
feetpaws and the winds long to play with your hairfur.
