From here on I resolve to feel less guilt about things.
I will not feel guilty for taking time to go to the movies or dinner with my mom.
I will not feel guilty for taking time to watch television. I’m a visual learner. I can learn the craft of writing better through television than through books on the craft.
I will not feel guilty for taking time to play video games. Again, I can learn about the craft of plotting through this heavily visual medium. (May write on that someday soon.)
I will not feel guilty for indulging in pleasure reading without thought of studying how the author plied their craft. (Seriously, I have tried to read a book to analyze how an author did something and got to the end before remembering I was supposed to be paying attention to the craft.)
I will not feel guilty for taking time away from writing to teach myself to sew.
I will not feel guilty for pursuing other hobbies and indulgences to recharge my batteries.
I will not feel guilty for having a life outside of writing.
What do you resolve not to feel guilt over?
