Wannabe Writers #59 (Taking A Break)

Wannabe Writers is my Internet writing group. Basically, my posts are about my current writing progress, my problems, and any questions I need help answering. If you've created a similar post of your own lately, feel free to link in the comments.

Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished! And I was speed writing through my ELIXIR novel... However, as you've probably guessed by my lack of 'Wannabe Writer' posts, I'm currently taking a break from writing. 
My current problem(s): Work. And summer.  I haven't been writing much lately.  Okay, I haven't been writing AT ALL lately.  I've just been busy with other things...and then when I tried to get back into the swing of writing again this week, I couldn't.  I was rereading over my stuff and I just didn't care like I normally would.  So the break from writing continues. 
My question(s) this week: How long do your breaks from writing last?

Sorry, it's hard when things get busy.

It's very difficult to start writing again once you've had a break isn't it? Especially with things like work and life getting in the way.

I was editing like crazy not so long ago but since then blogging has really taken over my life :( Not really sure how we get over this slump but to maybe wait for some inspiration!

My breaks vary. The last one was in July and it was 2-3 weeks. I was feeling blah and really busy. I knew where I wanted to go with my book, but wasn't sure how I wanted to get there. So, I took a break.

Hope you can get back to it soon.
