Now that Halloween is over, and all the scary things have gone to bed, it’s time to laugh a little. Am I right? I’m definitely a subscriber of Whedon’s advice here, and think it connects to life as well as writing. It’s healthy in the dark times to give the audience a laugh, or a breather. Also, when it comes to life it’s the same! If you’ve been grinding away, and can’t seem to get any further with your work, maybe it’s time to take a quick break. Take an hour or a night off just for you. Even planning this out may be a good idea, because it can be a reward for all the hard work you’ve been doing. Something you can look forward to.
