What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
Taking breaks, coffee, and having multiple projects. Those three things keep me sane.
Taking breaks is key to staying normal. As a author, I do not want to be burnt out on writing, because it can happen and if it does, I’ll have dry spells that can go on for a long time (weeks to months). If I miss out on taking breaks, I also find that I tend to be book-oriented at all times. Take a walk with my sister for example.
