Vacations are important. They help a person unplug, de-stress, and rekindle their love for their profession. And lets face it, even a person who loves their job can't love it 100% of the time. For some reason, I've been really terrible at grasping this concept when it comes to writing. When my "day job" still labeled me a web designer, writing was my escape. It was my treat to myself at the end of the day, what I longed to do on the weekends.
