“Take the naps.”
My adopted brother told me this, and it was a revelation! With writing, you can only think the same. This is why.
Writing, the dirty little secret about it, is hard. Good writing is harder still. Good writing keeps people engaged, guessing and mad they have to go to sleep and can’t read all night. Good writing sometimes takes you to dark places, and coming back from those places requires rest. It requires resilience. And tenacity.
Take the writer naps. They help.
