John Winokur shared a quote from poet May Sarton on Twitter last night.

I always forget how important the empty days are, how important it may be sometimes not to expect to produce anything.
— May Sarton

I like this quote. The empty days are so crucial. Not just for writers, but artists, photographers & creatives in general. It’s like a rest day for weightlifters. You need these days for recovery; A chance to heal, reflect and gain perspective.
