Lazy Afternoons

#1 Post by Hayzel » Sat Jul 30, 2011 2:04 pm

So when you're not working on a VN or being creative, what do you do to unwind and just flat out relax?

For me I make sure that wherever I am is really cool and wrap up in my blanket and a pile of pillows while either reading or watching TV. I also have a bad habit of stretching out in the middle of the floor and falling asleep.

I like to walk around town. I live in a small town, so I just walk up and down all the streets and alleys. For me, walking is more relaxing than laying around, because I get anxious if I have to sit still for too long. But I can't say I'm not being creative when I'm walking, because my stories are constantly churning in my head while I'm doing it, more vividly in fact than when I'm sitting down to write them >_>
"It is [the writer's] privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart,
by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride
and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past."
— William Faulkner

Haha. I meant being creative in the more physical sense. I think a lot about my characters when I'm relaxing haha. A little too much ^////^;

Playing video games or visual novels, watching animes, reading manga... If I don't really in the mood to do any of them then I usually chat/browse the internet.

I hate that feeling, it's like we have our best ideas when we can't write them down.

Me? I spend time gaming and/or drawing. Whichever seems most interesting

I like writing stories randomly. No seriously, I relax my mind by not focusing on grammar or any logic at all.
When I need inspiration, I read novels, some from school, some I bought myself.
I also do frequent biking because it livens up my system XD

I do a bit of sleeping. Dreams do frequent visits when I'm stressed or too relaxed, and it helps me think.
If none above works, one option's left: I EAT LOTS OF OATMEAL COOKIES <3

I read quite a bit. Recently, I've been working my way through Heinlein, switching off between his juveniles and his later work. I read "Time for the Stars" this afternoon, starting right after lunch and finishing before 4 - I just breeze through his juveniles.

I would normally go shopping or look for something in my apartment that needs to be cleaned up. Very rarely I would strike up the games console.

Mostly reading. I'm trying to make my way through the Game of Thrones series right now. I also play other videogames (yay "Catherine") and MMORPGs (yay Dragon Nest). But I still think about my games constantly and plan/outline, I just don't script on my "days off", so I don't know if that really counts as unwinding or whatever. XD

I read a lot of YA novels during my spare time (if I have any. I am currently working 5 to 6 days a week).

Since I work in the mall, I tend to go shopping quite a lot, I do online too. I bake some pasteries during my spare time too!

But my favorite is cuddling on my bed with tons of blankets, watching either korean dramas or the latest movies on dvd.
