This is my last day on vacation. I must admit: I haven’t written anything other than journal entries. I’m not beating myself up about it.

Writing shouldn’t ever cause you to feel bad about yourself, whether for the reason of bad criticism, the dreaded block, or even not writing at all. If you start to associate negativity with writing, the problem will just persist. At least, that’s been my experience.

I’m not gonna sweat not writing on this vacation. It’ll be over soon. Besides, I’ve been reviewing outlines and thinking about my characters this entire trip. That’s enough in my book.
