I have just had a very similar experience. Recently I challenged myself to the post for 30 days challenge. At the end of it I couldn’t think of writing anything else. The last 5 days were a real struggle.
This weekend I went away and wrote nothing, except my journal. Since returning from holiday I have completed several posts and now have articles scheduled for a couple of weeks. The break really was a benefit.
Good luck with your break and thanks for the article.
