It's so hard to say, "I'm going to step away from this for X days/weeks/however long" because I honestly do worry that I'll realize that, as much as I love writing, I simply don't have time to do it as well as I'd like. Or, I worry that the muse will disappear. It's so stressful, but the funny thing is that it's all pressure I put on myself. It's not coming from anywhere else.
