The I-Wrote-a-Book-and-I-Need-to-Get-Away-to-Refuel Trip

Last month, I finished the first draft of my WIP, and it was really intense. At one point, I wrote 17 000 words in just a couple of days. Needless to say, I felt really empty and kind of depressed once it was over.

I wanted so badly to go back to the world of my book and write more dialogues between my characters, but I knew I had to get away from the story so I could come back to it with a fresh, editing eye.

So I went to the mountains.

More specifically, to Gaspésie National Park, in Quebec. Here’s my hiking/emptying-my exhausted-brain trip in photos.

That’s it for me!

Now I’m so ready to edit the hell out of that first draft!

What do you guys do to get over a writing hangover?

Let’s chat in the comments!

Check out the cover of my upcoming book Devonna!
