Poetic Captions: Pug vs. the Storyboard

How do you know it's time to take a break? 


When your dog sits on your storyboard and refuses to get off. 

So I know that it can be hard to unplug from a writing project especially when the words are flowing. Recently, my pug decided he had enough and took a nap on my storyboard. I shooed him off and five minutes later he was on my storyboard/ I shooed him off again and five minutes later he was on my storyboard for the third time! Message received! 

What about you? How do you know it's time to unplug from a project? Is it your kids screaming for dinner or the aching in your hands? Please tell me in the comments below. 

if you liked this post please let others know. On Sunday, I'll be posting my first reflection and on Monday, I'll be blogging about agents. I hope you come back for that until then dare to write the impossible.

  1. Hi Rena! Your pug sitting on your storyboard reminds me of my two year old finding my notebook and drawing all over it. If only a dog could hold a crayon that could have been you!
    Haha. As for your question, I have the opposite problem. I never get a chance to really plug into any project. Maybe I should start waking up at 4 or 5?! :)

    1. Haha. Nice. I'm sure that once your kids are bit older you'll have more time.

  2. I have no pug...so I don't know how I will know when it's time to UNPUG....LOL!

    I guess I try to unplug when nothing seems creative...everything seems forced, so I know I have to back off and go with something else for a while...but it's hard to do that!
