Weekend Assignment: Refilling the Tanks

Ever get to the end of the week feeling like life has sucked the writing motivation right out of you?  This weekend’s assignment is especially good for weeks like that.

Writers cannot exist in a vacuum. We need to read, to interact, to play, to connect. For this weekend, your writing assignment is to refill the writer’s tanks by doing any or all of those things. Read a new book or reread an old favorite. Have a chat with a friend or loved one. Walk the dog, go for a run — whatever it is that you like to do that takes you out of yourself for a little while, go do it.

When you’re done, write about it.

Capture the essence of your weekend in words. Maybe you’ll write a journal entry, or perhaps a poem. It’s totally up to you to pick a form for your writing to take. Whether you choose to write something long of short, write about recharging.
