We’ve already talked about how important it is to take breaks, but do you know when is a good time to do so?
“When I’m tired” is probably what you’d answer. That, yes, but also when you are switching the mood in your stories. Let’s say that you are writing a chapter that starts off with your character blissfully happy, then something happens to them and at the end of the chapter they are scared or upset. Write the happy scenes, take a break, then write the conflict.
